News From 2020
Working in this industry gives us insight as to what the state of product development and manufacturing is in the United States and also in the world. With these experiences, we occasionally write articles on the subject which we then publish below, which also can be navigated with the sidebar on the right.
This article is included below, while additional news articles are linked on the right side of the page. Keep an eye out for more new 2021 news to be posted.
BACKGROUND
From the real world perspective of NPDS Design Services, LLC Founder, with over 40+ Years experience in New Product Development and International Manufacturing, and Marketing.
Beginning in 1974, the Founder became very much market, and job opportunity aware, and with learned skill sets, began working designing and developing for market short-run motorsports performance parts, continuing in high-tech precision manufacturing, in aviation and computer device manufacturing, including medical devices, and mass market consumer product manufacturing.

By 1983 no job opportunities were available in the USA for Engineers, New Product Developers, Tool Manufacture Engineers, and Machinist, for manufacturing physical products within the country. Manufacturing left the USA in mass in 1983, and most of our manufacturing talent here in the USA faded in to oblivion still to this day and year 2020.
POST WWII HISTORICAL TIMELINE - MANUFACTURING IN USA
  • 1942-1970 - USA domestic market consists of almost 95% products proudly Made in USA. Democrat Unionized Labor groups continue to expand presence throughout the USA.
  • 1970-1974 - Japan see's market opportunity with rising cost of USA made goods sold both in the USA domestic market, and the international markets as well.
During this time, USA made products were becoming rapidly cost prohibitive to manufacture and produce, also to purchase, and fast becoming non-competitive in the marketplace, due to continued expansion of democratic union freebie employee attitudes against their employers, forcing product prices to rise to unreasonable amounts, which opened the opportunity for foreign market invaders, offering drastically lower market product prices, to gain market share.
USA looses market share in electronics, motorcycles, machine tools, and other needed staples, and consumer products and Made In Japan products become prominent on the store shelves.
  • 1974-1978 - Taiwan see's market opportunity with high cost of Japanese made goods sold both in the USA domestic market, and the international markets as well. USA continues to loose market share, companies, factories, jobs, and American's future.
  • 1978-1983 - China see's market opportunity with high cost of Taiwanese made goods sold both in the USA domestic market, and the international markets as well. USA continues to loose market share, companies, factories, jobs, and American's future.
It was in this time period that Made In China products become prominent on American store shelves, typically over products that were Made in Taiwan, Japan, in the USA.
MANUFACTURING RETURNS TO USA: 2020
Manufacturing left the USA in 1983, and now is set to return starting "Full Circle Cycle of Supply Chain Sea Change" in 2020, due to the COVID-19 CCP China Virus, and the world's manufacturing center, no longer utilized.
