The vast majority of the products in your household are probably manufactured abroad. Most of our everyday objects are made abroad such as your smartphone or your kid’s favorite toy. Even a lot of products that are made in the U.S. have parts that are manufactured elsewhere. Not every product made abroad is bad. In fact, many are great. However, there are a few reasons why products manufactured in the United States are important.
At Medlin Ramps, we have two manufacturing facilities both located in the U.S. We have one located in Santa Fe Springs near Los Angeles, California and one in Lexington, North Carolina. Here is why we believe having two manufacturing facilities is important.
Made in the U.S.A.
The first reason why having these two manufacturing facilities is important is because our equipment is made in the U.S.A. This importance of this stems to a few different areas. First, we adhere by manufacturing codes and standards set forth by the United States government. Our equipment and all of its components has to pass certain criteria in order for it to be deemed safe for use. Therefore, we can guarantee that you are getting a superior quality product when you purchase an equipment handling solution from us.
We also abide by OSHA standards. Not only in our own manufacturing plant but also in the products that we manufacture. We feel it is important to have your products manufactured safely, where employees have great working conditions in which safety is placed at the forefront. With this in mind, we also have your employees’ safety in mind. Our products have to meet certain regulations so that they are safe for you to use as well. Safety requirements get a little more complex when manufactured abroad. If there is one thing that shouldn’t be complex, it is safety. That is a pretty cut and dry area for us.
Another reason why having our two manufacturing facilities here is important is because we are able to provide employment for the local residents. There is certainly profit to be made by outsourcing manufacturing but that also leaves a void for the job market here. We take pride in employing our neighbors.
Another reason why having two manufacturing facilities is important is because of convenience. As you can see, our facilities are located on both coasts. This makes it easy for us to service the vast majority of the country. This makes delivering your equipment to you much easier and much more cost efficient. For example, if we only had the Los Angeles facility, shipping to an east coast customer would be much more costly. Our goal with both facilities is to be able to service both coasts and the midwest as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible.
