Small and big business owners alike can get jobs done faster when utilizing a U.S.-based manufacturer. Whether you are looking for a way to consistently meet your order deadlines or simply decrease the stress and turnaround time of ordering a much-needed product, here are five reasons to pledge your loyalty to local, domestically-owned manufacturing companies for plastic injection molding.
1. Better Communication = Better Results
When you buy manufactured plastic parts from a domestically owned company, especially when purchasing a product that is custom made, you can expect communications to be smoother, more timely, and less of a hassle overall. U.S. based-companies, as opposed to internationally located factories, will be able to provide customers with a more convenient model for communication, allowing customers to stay involved and abreast of any changes or unexpected delays to their order. With less time being spent coordinating time zones and international holidays, customers can reduce the length of the project with faster communications. When companies and their clients are able to work together and set clear expectation for the end result, both parties are more likely to be satisfied with the final product.
2. Faster Turnaround Time
Injection mold manufacturers creating products that are made in the U.S.A. allow customers to reduce the gap between time spent ordering the product and the time when the product arrives at their door. This proximity also allows companies to pass any savings along to the customer, creating more competitive pricing and helping boost the likelihood that happy buyers will buy again.
3. Eliminate Customs Processing Delays
Buying domestic means bypassing the endless checklists of inspections and procedures needed to safely ship a package from an international location into the United States. Even a perfectly prepared and documented order can be held up in customs with little estimation of when it will be released. Ordering from an American plastic manufacturer eliminates dealing with customs and gives you more control of your project.
4. Reduce Environmental Footprint
By eliminating the amount of distance between your plastic molding company and your front door, not only are you saving money and time - you’re cutting back on the amount of gasoline, fuel emissions, water, energy and manpower needed to ship a product across the world versus across state lines. It may seem inconsequential in the short term, but a series of purchases adds up to make a big difference in the long term and helps keep our planet clean and sustainable for years to come.
5. Give Back to Your Community
When you order from a local or domestically owned business, you are helping create domestic jobs and investing in the future of the US manufacturing industry. By keeping your dollars close to home, you can invest in an economy that you and your family play an active part in, and help to strengthen the workforce from the inside out.
