How to Become a Walmart Supplier

NIST Assists in US Manufacturing Supply Chain

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has broken into the Walmart supply chain. Over the next 10 years, The retail corporation will spend an additional $250 billion on U.S.-made products as part of its commitment to domestic manufacturing and American jobs.

They will be hosting their first Made in USA "Open Call" Summit on July 8 in Bentonville, Ark. at the Walmart Home Office. Current suppliers that wish to present new categories will be featured alongside suppliers with U.S. manufacturing capabilities currently not doing business with Walmart. They will have a chance to meet with senior leaders, buyers, and executives. Walmart has put out an open invitation to all suppliers, and registration for the event is now open.

Is Low-Cost Manufacturing Heading to the U.S. Next?

A recent survey from Entrada Group titled "Where in the World?" posits a rather interesting conclusion: the U.S. is now considered the prime location for low-cost manufacturing, with Mexico a close second, and China - once the mecca of cheaply-produced goods - falling behind. It's a far cry from the trends over the last few decades, in which American consumers saw many of their most commonly-bought items tagged with a "Made in China" label, and in which we lost a great deal of manufacturing jobs as a nation. And because it's a rather extraordinary claim, it deserves a little more examination.  Read more.
