Drivers and Effects of Manufacturing Reshoring: A Multiple Case Study Research on Italian Companies

The present research investigates the manufacturing reshoring phenomenon through a multiple case study, following a theory-building approach. The scope of the analysis is circumscribed to six reshoring initiatives implemented by five Italian companies; specifically, cross-industry motivations underlying reshoring decisions and their performance effects are examined. Until now, no academic study has been conducted on these issues focusing on the Italian context. Based on this analysis, it emerges that, differently from the US case, reshoring strategies of Italian firms are triggered more by “soft” factors, e.g. made-in effect, than by “hard” factors, e.g. shrinking labor cost gap. Moreover, it can be concluded that reshoring had a general positive impact. However, depending on specific firms’ characteristics and on the prominence of specific reshoring drivers, the impact on distinct performance dimensions can be either positive or negative.
