Adapting and growing in a rapidly changing global market
In today’s rapidly changing geopolitical world, corporations across all industrial manufacturing sectors are facing a new set of challenges and opportunities. As tariffs and increasing protectionism threaten to undermine complex global supply chains, organizations that adapt fast will be the ones that survive, thrive and grow.
With Industry 4.0, the smart factory and the digital supply chain set to rapidly disrupt the manufacturing ecosystem, many of our leading clients see that it is an imperative to look at new ways of optimizing operations and implementing an on-demand supply chain for competitive advantage.
Importance of manufacturing to the economy
In 2017, manufacturing as a whole contributed $2.33 trillion to the US economy. In the EU, manufacturing accounts for around 8.9% of all enterprises in the non-financial business economy.
Challenges and opportunities
Across the global manufacturing industry, adopting new technologies offers long-term business sustainability and create new avenues for revenue growth. Unfortunately, that growth is unlikely to lead to an increase in manufacturing jobs. This is chiefly because of productivity improvements such as the increased use of computers, robotics, and other efficient processes. Where new jobs are created, they require sophisticated computer-related skills to manage the robots. As a consequence, there is a skills gap which has left 89% of manufacturers reporting that they have unfilled vacancies with many attributing this to a lack of qualified applicants.

Based on the value Maine Pointe delivered through improving the operations in our Mesquite Mine in California, we agreed to work with them on a Strategic Procurement engagement involving all of our mines in Canada, the U.S., Mexico and Australia.
