Almost 2 years ago, one of the first decisions I made when starting Victory Fingers was that I had to seek and find a 100% US-based supply chain. It took me almost 12 months to shore(pardon the pun) that up. My main reasons were: Quality Control and Turnaround Times. My U.S.A. manufacturers offer BOTH.
Very interesting that, yesterday, Wal-Mart’s CEO said: “Having more jobs in the U.S. would boost the spending level of its customers.” Further, Wal-Mart said sales of U.S.-made towels sold 30% more than foreign-made stock when it switched this year! Wal-Mart CEO Mike Duke also described U.S. manufacturing at “a tipping point,” especially when transportation cost (and increasing overseas labor costs as well as large safety concerns in deplorable conditions) is going to continue to rise.
I am VERY proud to be a part of “Saving American Manufacturing”, 1 small company, 1 step at a time. Every one counts!
