Buy American Products
Having been an acrylic fabricator for almost a quarter century I know how hard it can be to compete with overseas manufacturing. The wage differences are very hard to swallow on the U.S. side of things. Plus the pricing on many materials is very hard for us to compete with. Being a plastic fabrication company was very straightforward for many years. Set up a network of distributors in the states and start purchasing materials. Acrylic fabrication companies now have to work with the distributors on all types of import materials.
The reason to buy American products
As a plastic fabrication company I have always been very proud of this country. For years we have designed and produced custom displays for numerous industries. It has always been a pleasure doing business with companies all over this great land. But the mentality we have developed over the last decade is very sobering and definitely a detriment to the growth of this great nation. We need some type of incentives to bring our companies back to our own shores. What is sad is that our leaders are typically silent about this, and have shown no incentive to change this way of thinking. So if you do have a choice buy it locally, even if it’s to support a small business located in your community.
Top reasons to buy American products.
Number one they are made here.
Number two it gives an American citizen a job.
Number three the money goes back into our government not a foreign one.
I could list many reasons why to do business in the states and how it will benefit our land but I don’t think it is truly necessary. We all know it’s the right and necessary thing to do. As an acrylic and plastic fabrication company it’s very obvious that we need change. I hope in the near future I can buy American made acrylic for my custom displays. So I would like to thank you as an acrylic/plastic fabricator for taking the time to read this article on this issue. Buy American products it will help our economy.
This is an article that I hold close to my heart. After twenty five years of being in business things have really changed. I never had any competition form foreign countries when I first started in business. The only saving grace is the cost of shipping to get the product here. I hope it’s not too late to correct this situation.
