Chicago knows manufacturing, and in the early 1900s, people around the world regarded Chicago as a manufacturing metropolis, dominated by factories and populated by the people who owned, operated, or worked in them. In 1919, half of the 400,000 wage earners in the city worked in heavy industries, including iron and steel, garment manufacturing, agricultural and electrical machinery manufacturing, commercial printing, railroading, and meat packing.Furthermore, the city produced more steel than entire nations during World War II. Sadly, manufacturing has taken a back seat in recent decades, but more recently the industry has shown stability and potential for growth and reemergence.  

Considering this history, it makes sense that local companies are adopting on-demand labor as a new way of working. On-demand labor empowers your business to base its labor capacity on demand in real time, rather than averaging its headcount throughout the year. Building your own flexible capacity through a labor pool is a powerful approach to work, and other manufacturers and distributors in your city are taking notice.

The makers and movers of the United States are finally making a stand and building our productive capacity back as reshoring gains traction. Revitalizing manufacturing is a team effort that will benefit our communities for years to come. Join the revolution.

It's time to make. Your way.

"Veryable has been an incredible partner for flexible labor to help make sure our locations consistently have the manpower they need to help drive our revenue."
Jim F.
VP of Retail Operations
"When Veryable came in, it really helped us out by giving us the flexibility of being able to pick our people, even the same day. If I get up in the morning and go, 'Oh geez, I need 10 more people,' and post an opportunity for 10 people, I might have 25 people bid. The pool of people Veryable has just makes it totally easy to meet my goals.”
Don Benson
Lone Star Overnight (LSO)
“If they don't have to stop and do criteria checks on every part that comes out, then they're able to produce more parts in the machine. That takes a lot of weight off our full-time employees."
Mickey Raynlha
Mack Tool & Engineering
"Veryable gave the operation more flexibility and has allowed us to be able to react to demand more efficiently"
Christopher Couture
GM, Customized Distribution Services
“As operators come in and spend more time in our production facility, they are able to learn different positions. They may be on this machine today, tomorrow they may be on a different machine and it’s a win-win. When having a sudden increase in production and being able to bring in operators’ day-to-day, we don’t have to continuously train new people on a daily basis, they’ve already been there, they’ve already done that.”
Chris Akins
United Plastic Groups
"Where before, we were having a hard time getting everything done and getting the trucks out on time, now we're getting them out not only on time, but early ... and some nights, very early. It's been a huge difference.”
Steve MacMunn
Operations Manager, Gold Coast Eagle Distributing
“Veryable has given us flexibility to get orders out without late dispatch. We have a resource pool and we use it. And it's been life saving at times."
