Google Inc (GOOG) Moto X: A Continued Look at US Manufacturing

Do you remember our piece from a few weeks back discussing the Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Motorola Moto X smartphone? We discussed how the device is made in the United States without costing much more than it would manufacturing overseas.

Google Inc (GOOG) Motorola Moto X: A Continued Look at US Manufacturing

As you can imagine, this is a big win for both Google and Motorola. While the competition continues to rely on overseas manufacturing, the search engine giant has found a way to keep costs under control at home. Not only does this make the company look better, but it will go a long way in attracting a new breed of buyers – those who would prefer to purchase products that are made solely or partially in the US.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Motorola Celebrate

According to a recent post on the official Motorola blog, “there are 150 million smartphones in the USA.” While most people understand this to be true, it is the next bit of information that may knock you off your feet: until the Moto X, not one of these devices was manufactured on US soil.

At first, nobody believed this would be possible. Instead, it was widely thought that smartphones had to be manufactured in China in order to keep the costs down. While there is nothing wrong with this way of manufacturing, Google and Motorola set out to make a big change to the industry.

Dennis Woodside, CEO of Motorola, penned the blog post discussing the manufacturing of the Moto X in the United States.

The entire team at Motorola and Google is celebrating the official launch of the manufacturing facility for the smartphone, located in Forth Worth, Texas.

In short, every Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Moto X being sold in the United States is going to be manufactured at this facility. Does it get any better than that?

While this will give consumers a warm and fuzzy feeling, it is also important to note that the addition of this facility to the area created more than 2,000 jobs over the course of a few months – with many more to come.

Motorola and Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) were able to do something that many thought was impossible. Now that the two are proving that US smartphone manufacturing is an option, it will be interesting to see if other companies follow suit.

Do you think these hedge fund managers, all heavily invested in GOOG, are impressed: Christopher Hansen, Robert Karr, Daniel Benton, Gregory Bylinsky, and Sandy Nairn.
