Made in the USA, does it mean anything to executives?

Question posed to Interop Vendors

made in usa

A question that does come up when speaking to CEO's and CFO's is where are we getting this equipment from or where is it made by the vendor? With that said I decided this year to pose that question to the vendors at Interop. I am asking each vendor I meet with to send me an email of where they get there product from, this is sometimes a complicated question. Many source there equipment from many different sources and then assemble it. Some companies source and assemble all outside the USA and some assemble in the USA.

With this being a complicated question I will be compiling emails and post an update to this blog sometime over the weekend. It will be very interesting to see the results.
