Marlin Steel was recently featured in the pages of Foreign Policy Magazine as an American automation success story. The piece, titled “Made in the U.S.A.

The article talks about how, a few years ago, it looked as if the availability of cheap labor overseas would entice as many as nine out of ten CEOs to build their next major factory outside of the US. Now, thanks to the advantages of robotics and the need for skilled operators, only two or three of those same CEOs would consider putting their next plant outside the US.
