We CHOOSE to manufacture here, but before you go patting us on the back, we want our readers to realize that manufacturing in the US actually makes a lot of BUSINESS sense, especially for small businesses.
Most critics will suggest manufacturing in China or India, but there’s a few problems with this if you’re producing in smaller quantities. Simply, it is not cheaper to manufacture overseas in small quantities. The time to receive product is GREATLY increased by having to ship by boat (unless you pay extra for air freight) and is anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks, not to mention the wait for customs to clear the product. Lastly, unless you’re visiting these countries you can’t have direct control over what you’re producing, which can lead to misrepresentations of labor or materials used to produce.
With all that said, it just makes sense to us to manufacture our product in the USA!
