This week, Tony Uphoff joins me on the show to discuss how manufacturing supply chains have been impacted by the Coronavirus. Tony is the President and CEO of Thomas, the leader in product sourcing, supplier selection, and marketing solutions for industry.
A recent survey showed by 750 North American manufacturing and industrial suppliers showed that 60% of US manufacturing companies are already feeling the disruptions caused by the coronavirus outbreak, with 24% of the surveyed companies having production facilities in China.
Ont this episode, we'll be discussing this survey, and Tony will shed some good news from some more recent survey numbers that indicate supply chains have adjusted their sourcing and these disruptions are being minimized by manufacturers.
