Reversing Manufacturing Globalization

Tino Go June 28, 2022

Technology and Industry 4.0 principles are permitting new, more efficient, tech-enabled business models. Baru leverages patented technology and commonplace but underused robotics in our hometowns to de-globalize manufacturing supply chains. Local, on-demand manufacturing avoids $15 billion of product shipping and handling from the $35 billion furniture and cabinets industry. Reversing global supply chains and bringing manufacturing back to the local level permits efficient customization of products for individual buyers while reducing the cost and time requirements of long-distance supply chains. Baru has sales and manufacturing partnerships in 29 cities in the United States, less than 1-hour drive from over 100 million Americans’ homes and businesses. Baru is currently growing our annualized sales into the 7-figure range with an average order value of $12 thousand.
