EMS@C Panel: The Unseen Barriers to Reshoring for EMS with Michael Knöferle, BMK Group and Michael Velmeden CMS Electronics

If you’ve wondered why reshoring isn’t quite hitting the marks we all anticipated, this engaging discussion with special guests, Michael Velmeden from CMS Electronics and Michael Knöferle from BMK Group, is for you. We delve into the inflexibility and opacity of today’s supply chains, spotlighting the hurdles faced by EMS companies in maintaining a firm grip on inventory and cash flows. The panelists suggest a call to arms for fairer lead times and an equitable landscape for all supply chain stakeholders.

What is more, the talent crisis in the EMS industry is a real and present danger to reshoring. In the second part of this panel, we place the spotlight on the need to make EMS an attractive sector for future leaders. It’s time to bring out the best of this industry – innovative, dynamic, and full of opportunity. And it’s not all about drawing in fresh faces. We go on to discuss the intricate interaction between automation and the human touch in the production process.

We explore the path to efficiency and success in the EMS industry. Perhaps it is a resilient supply chain, trust between partners, and a team of skilled individuals complemented by digital transformation and adaptable automation.
