Walmart Invites Suppliers Of U.S.-Made Products To Meet With Its Buyers

July 8, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Walmart has invited more than 500 manufacturers to its Arkansas headquarters to pitch U.S.-made products to sell in stores, clubs and online. The company’s first “Made in the USA” open call is part of the company’s plan to spend an additional $250 billion on products “supporting domestic manufacturing and American jobs” over the next 10 years. The company will increase spending on its current line of U.S.-made goods, source “new to Walmart” U.S. products, and support “re-shoring” of products it buys. The program makes economic sense, according to the company. Changes in energy and automation processes overseas make it more cost-effective and efficient to manufacture consumer goods here.
