Sherrill Manufacturing, Sherrill, NY, has received the 2019 National Metalworking Reshoring Award in recognition of the company’s success bringing manufacturing back home to the United States.
The award, given by the Reshoring Initiative, the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), The Association For Manufacturing Technology (AMT) and the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA), honors a company that has effectively reshored products, parts or tooling made primarily by metal forming, fabricating, casting or machining, including additive manufacturing. Sherrill was chosen as the award winner because its success demonstrates that it is feasible to reshore completely lost product categories, including every-day products such as flatware. When Oneida Limited ceased operations, all U.S. flatware production had been lost, primarily to Asia. Sherrill Mfg. took over the Oneida flatware factory, launched innovative products under the Liberty Tabletop brand and found a more efficient way to market those products. Sherrill is now growing consistently.
