Supply and demand are fluid, and now that we have experienced COVID uncertainty, we know just how long it can take to return to a more stable and predictable level.
That’s why it’s more sensible than ever to choose American manufacturing solutions – shorter supply chains mean fewer delays.
A joint survey involving Forbes, Xometry, and John Zogby Strategies found that in Q1 of 2023, 82% of CEOs surveyed were prioritizing onshoring, compared to 55% in Q4 of 2022. Optimism in American manufacturing and a focus on modernizing operations combine to provide incentives to return to manufacturing in the U.S. Robotics and artificial intelligence are heavily influencing optimism and reprioritizing efforts.
Beyond just cost savings for businesses, there’s also potential for increased reliability. With American-made products, you can be sure that what you’re getting is of the highest quality and will last through the years. This reliability not only helps businesses save money in the long run, but also allows them to serve their customers better.
3 Reasons to Purchase from Product Companies in the USA
Overseas outsourcing – particularly through shipping channels that can become blocked or backlogged – can significantly impact lead times for your company.
Production that is based in the U.S. can provide three significant benefits:
- Faster Delivery: Purchasing products manufactured in the U.S. means the source is physically closer and almost certainly less prone to inclement weather and political conflicts. This ensures that critical parts or products are delivered on time, increasing reliability and decreasing downtime.
- Quality Control: Manufacturers based in the U.S. are subject to rigorous quality-control measures to ensure that products adhere to certain standards. These products are often regarded as higher-quality and more reliable than those from other countries, decreasing the likelihood of malfunction or failure.
- Avoidance of Language & Cultural Barriers: When purchasing products manufactured overseas, language and time zone barriers can cause delays and misunderstandings that impact product delivery timeframes. Often, communication issues can lead to incorrect product requests or poor order fulfillment. U.S.-based manufacturers can minimize such barriers by providing local support, making it easier to address questions and concerns in real time.
Are American-Made Products Higher-Quality?
While the answer to this question is mostly situational, it bears noting that American-made products are generally required to meet stricter quality standards than products manufactured in other countries. Therefore, it is generally accepted that American-made products are of higher quality.
