GCI: What regions of the world are experiencing a growth in outsourcing facilities?
Glenn Sandgren: Mostly China, India and Eastern Europe. Our company has several facilities around the world, but with contract packaging, the risk/reward is not yet acceptable. Our customers require proven safe production in short lead times.
Paddy Spence: For commodity-type products, we see [growth in a number of regions], but for premium products like ours, there’s always a cachet in being produced in a particular region. For us, it’s the U.S.
Bill Hunt: All regions are seeing increases in contract manufacturing.
