Element Electronics is one of many companies who have re-shored an assembly line from Asia back to Canton, Michigan.

Mike O'Shaughnessy, the company's CEO, argues that consumer demand is a primary driver for the recent success of locally-made TVs. By calculating the total costs of production, and by weighing duty and freight against labor, the company found a positive financial picture of producing in the U.S.A. And it seems to be working. The "Made in the U.S.A." packaging can't hurt, either.
