As consumers, we’ve all been there. Your nice, shiny new gadget has arrived and you’re eager to test it out. Everything seems okay on the surface but after a months use, the gadget breaks down and you’re left a much lighter wallet. And of course, the warranty doesn’t cover the duration or part. You check out this “U.S. based” company only to find it builds none of its own products here in the United States. The entire manufacturing process is outsourced to a different country.
Now let’s take that same situation and apply it on a commercial scale. Your company needs industrial equipment. Company A has high quality products for a fair price. Company B on the other hand has similar products for a fraction of the price. This might seem like a steal at first glance but if you really dive into how those costs are so cheap, you’re bound to find out why.
Industrial equipment is generally a sizeable investment to make. That’s one reason why knowing who is building your industrial equipment is vital. If you know the manufacturer, you can learn the processes used to build the product and the materials used to build. Buying the cheaper brand may result in product failures, which will result in the need to repurchase the product.
Another reason why knowing the industrial equipment manufacturer is important is because of safety. When it comes to your employees, safety should be at the forefront. That means providing them with the highest quality, most durable, safe industrial equipment to use. The cheap, poorly constructed industrial equipment can fail or break, resulting in a workplace injury. That alone should be a deterrent to avoid a lesser quality product, not to mention the costly lawsuit that is sure to follow.
