Why We Do What We Do

North American Manufacturing (Mexico) can finally compete with outsourced manufacturing in China. This phenomenon just came to fruition within the last year due to China’s cost of labor and utilities skyrocketing over the past couple of years. BRH2 has been preparing for this and is perfectly situated to take full advantage of most retail manufacturers who are currently looking for a China +1 strategy.
