The Association for Manufacturing Excellence inducted Harry Moser, president of the Reshoring Initiative, into the AME Hall of Fame during the 2021 AME International Conference.

The AME Hall of Fame recognizes industry thought leaders and influencers who support the values, principles and practices found within leading enterprise excellence organizations. The nomination criteria include the significance of an individual's contributions to the growth of enterprise excellence within the lean, continuous improvement community.

Moser joins 34 previously inducted Hall of Fame members including Jean Cunningham, George Koenigsaecker, John Shook, James Womack and Robert “Doc” Hall. Moser was honored at the 2021 AME International Conference along with fellow new Hall of Famer Bob Chapman, and Joe Fisher, recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award.

“We are excited to honor these three individuals at the upcoming AME International Conference,” said Kimberlee A. Humphrey, AME president and CEO. “Each has distinguished themselves among their peers and made considerable contributions to the AME and continuous improvement communities.”

“Lean/continuous improvement are keys to making U.S. manufacturing competitive enough to accelerate reshoring,” said Harry Moser. “To paraphrase Edwards Deming, Jim Womack and John Shook, one needed improvement is for companies to stop sourcing on the basis of price and, instead, minimize total cost. I am honored to join Jim and John in the AME Hall of Fame”

Moser founded the Reshoring Initiative to bring 5 million manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. Prior to that, he worked for machine tool supplier GF AgieCharmilles, starting as president in 1985 and retiring in 2010 as chairman emeritus.
