March 21 Forum: On Shoring? Near Shoring?

Published: Mar 11, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 11, 2014) -— The manufacturing concept of On Shoring/Near Shoring will be the focus of the Fourth Annual Supply Chain Forum scheduled for March 21 and hosted by the University of Kentucky's Executive Education Center, part of the Gatton College of Business and Economics.

 

People are signing up at a brisk pace for the event to be held at Fasig-Tipton, 2400 Newtown Pike in Lexington, but there are plenty of spots still available.  Day of, on site registration and continental breakfast opens at 7:45 a.m. The forum itself begins at 8:20 a.m. and goes until 3:30 p.m., with a buffet lunch served at noon.

 

Corporations and individuals consider a number of factors when deciding on where their manufacturing operations should be located. Currently there is a significant trend toward more and more companies bringing  production back to the U.S. from overseas or at least locating production facilities closer to this country.

 

The general manager of procurement of indirect and production materials for Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing North America, Inc., Gene Tabor, will deliver the  keynote address at the conference. Tabor will give an overview of Toyota, including their suppliers in North America and the relationshiops the company builds with them, purchasing philosophies, Toyota Way principles and more.  

 

A number of other outstanding presenters at the forum will discuss issues such as cost, risk, flexibility and complexity factors.

 

The event is sponsored by LBX, Lexmark International, American Woodmark, LeanCor

and Blue World Supply Chain Consulting, LLC.

 

Speakers include Derek Browning, regional vice president of lean deployment, LeanCor, LLC and Michelle Rawlings, director of Global Sourcing, Lexmark.

 

Executives from Lexmark, Toyota, and Ashland, Inc. will serve as judges for an MBA Lean-Six Sigma Poster Competition during the Supply Chain Forum.

 

Distinguished Professor Nallan Suresh of the State University of New York, Buffalo will address "Agility and Resiliency in Supply Chain" while UK Assistant Professor of Supply Chain Scott Ellis will moderate a panel discussion, "Near Shoring Decision Making Process."  Panelists taking part represent American Woodmark, Lexmark and Alltech.

 

"This is a must-attend event if you play any role in your organization's supply chain," said Gatton College MBA Programs Director Harvie Wilkinson.  "Our steering committee, which is comprised of several outstanding professionals in our region, did a fabulous job in setting the agenda and attracting a terrific lineup of speakers. We are confident this will be the best program ever in the short history of this conference."

 

The registration fee for the all-day event is $135 and includes all materials, continental breakfast, lunch and refreshments.  The cost is reduced to $110 if you or your company register two or more people.
