SARASOTA, Fla. -- Harry Moser and the Reshoring Initiative team received the Made In America 2019 Reshoring Award during the recent Made In America 2019 event held at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

The event’s mission is to raise awareness for the economic, environmental and community impact of American-made manufacturers and brands.

“I am honored to receive the award and I am delighted to participate in this inaugural event. Made In America 2019 was a great success, especially for a first of its kind event. I want to thank Don Buckner and his Made in America team and congratulate them on the event’s success.” said Moser, founder and president of the Reshoring Initiative. Harry Moser established the Reshoring Initiative in 2010 to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.

The event drew policymakers, industry professionals, advocates and conscious consumer. Exhibitors at the event included hundreds of manufacturers and companies from diverse industries and backgrounds with categories ranging from aerospace and automobiles to apparel and textiles.

Approximately 50 percent of exhibitors were either woman- or veteran-owned. Highlights included presentations and forums led by industry leaders and peer-to-peer networking with the Made in the USA community. Organizers behind Made In America 2019 say this is only the beginning of the nationwide movement. 

Moser’s reshoring efforts have been widely recognized. In 2010, he was inducted into the Industry Week Manufacturing Hall of Fame. Moser actively participated in President Obama’s Insourcing Forum at the White House in January 2012. He also won The Economist debate in January 2013 on outsourcing and offshoring, and received the Manufacturing Leadership Council’s Industry Advocacy Award in 2014. In 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce named Moser as a member of its new Investment Advisory Council. See
