Having returned to the office subsequent to exibiting at NPE, it appears that the media is obsessed with the “China Factor” and what American mold makers think of it. The only strategy that appears to be presented as an action plan is for the government to make changes to policies.
Whatever happened to rugged individualism and the entrepreneurial spirit that created America? How about being innovative and becoming more efficient?
The China Factor should be considered an opportunity to the slumping mold-making industry. We have the technology that is perhaps six to eight years ahead. If you follow this ill-fated strategy to march on Washington, change policies and impose import duties on foreign goods, you might as well bury your collective heads in the sand and wait until the government makes everything right. Make sure you turn off the lights in the plant because you will have nothing left except your complaints.
