Turns out "re-shoring" is real, according to a new Accenture survey. Two-thirds of senior execs say they have moved their manufacturing operations in the past 24 months, with two-fifths saying the facilities had been relocated to the U.S. China was the second destination for relocated factories, with 28%, followed by Mexico with 21%.
