Why Stanley Black & Decker is re-shoring to the US

Since 2010, nearly 800,000 manufacturing jobs have been created in the United States, reversing a decade-long trend where the industry lost one-third of its workers.

Key to understanding this revival of US industry is hearing why American companies are re-shoring their plants back to the US.

Stanley Black & Decker has manufactured the first power tool made in America in 25 years.

The company's chief executive, John Lundgren, sat down with the BBC's chief business correspondent Linda Yueh to discuss what's driving the re-shoring trend and why this Fortune 500 manufacturer is investing at home.
