We live in an increasingly high-tech world, and that means seemingly every day a new advance is being made in the field of technology manufacturing. Finding new ways to more reliably and more affordably bring advanced products to the public is the number one priority for those in the manufacturing business.
One of the ways that large companies like Apple and Microsoft keep their costs as low as possible is by moving their manufacturing plants overseas. If this seems a little unpatriotic, just take into account that if they operated in their country of origin then their products might cost as much as two times more than they currently do. The practice of moving business overseas has been pretty commonplace for a number of years now, but now more than ever it has become a popular option. The reason for this once again stems back to technology. Technology has severely eased the learning curve of operating in a different country.
