U.S. manufacturing on tap in Bentonville


Walmart Vice President of U.S. Manufacturing Cindi Marsiglio is scheduled to provide an update on the retailer’s $250 billion domestic sourcing commitment at an event later this month.

Marsiglio is scheduled to speak at 7 a.m., March 19, at an event sponsored by Doing Business in Bentonville at the John Q Hammons Center in Rogers, Ark. The organization, known as DBB locally, regularly holds events at which top Walmart executives share updates and insights on key initiatives and working effectively with the company.

Marsiglio is expected to address Walmart's progress to date against its $250 billion commitment towards additional U.S. manufacturing, including some of the headwinds and tailwinds the company is facing. In addition, she plans to shed light on Walmart's strategy of enabling merchants and suppliers and provide details about how the U.S. manufacturing team is structured, available supplier resources and an upcoming event on July 7 called Open Call. The first Open Call event was held last year and gave suppliers and opportunity to present domestically source products to Walmart merchants.
