5 Advantages of McIntyre’s Made in America Manufacturing Products
Because McIntyre’s products are made in America, they are arriving on-time while our overseas competitors are struggling to provide the goods that are needed for businesses and homes across the country.
This means there’s never been a better time to support “made in America manufacturing,” and at McIntyre, we’re proud to say that we have always provided products made in the USA.
Purchasing American-made products not only supports the economy by providing jobs—it also avoids some of the supply chain issues seen when transporting a product from overseas. We’ve outlined five advantages of McIntyre’s Made in America manufacturing products, what this means for you, and how it can improve your bottom line.
5 Advantages of Purchasing Made in America Manufacturing Products
1. It Helps Expedite Delivery
When you’re running a business, the importance of on-time deliveries cannot be overestimated. By dealing with a domestic company, you help ensure that there are no delays with shipping, which can happen when purchasing from overseas.
2. It Can Decrease Costs
The pandemic brought a spotlight onto the precarious system that is overseas shipping. As the increase for products gained traction, the cost of moving cargo rose dramatically. For comparison, before COVID-19, shipping a container from Shanghai to Los Angeles was roughly $2,000. However, in 2021, the price for that same journey had increased to as much as $25,000, according to the New York Times.
Even major retailers like Target ran into problems. They sometimes waited months to get their finished products onto ships for delivery to the United States.
You don’t have to worry about shipping from overseas when you deal with products from McIntyre because they are made in the USA.
3. It Increases Customer Satisfaction
Did you know that not only do Americans prefer products made in the USA, but many are willing to pay up to 20% more for them? According to Supply Chain Management Review, a survey recently demonstrated that not only did 70% of respondents state they preferred products made in America, but 83% of those said they were willing to pay more to get a product made in the United States.
Showcasing products made in America not only makes good fiscal sense, but it also serves as a useful public relations tool, demonstrating that you are not only contributing to the local economy, but you’re also taking consumer preferences into consideration.
4. It Is More Environmentally Friendly—and This Can Help You Market to Consumers
Ocean shipping emits much more greenhouse gasses than deliveries that are done in the USA. By reducing the amount of products you bring in from overseas, you’re reducing your carbon footprint.
But being environmentally friendly can be more than a social responsibility. It can also help you market to key demographics.
In a previous blog, we talked about the incredible purchasing power of Millennials and how you can’t afford to ignore this important generation. While their purchasing power may not surprise you, this might: 70% of Millennials will spend more if the brand supports a cause that is important to them. When you factor in that Millennials are passionate about protecting the environment, you’re presented with a marketing opportunity in addition to being environmentally responsible.
5. It Has a Higher Standard of Safety and Quality Control
At McIntyre Manufacturing, quality is the hallmark of all that we do. It’s one reason why we have so many repeat customers and clients that have been with us for decades.
McIntyre Manufacturing began in 1977, when John McIntyre started an OEM parts business out of a small metal shop located in his backyard woodshed. This set the stage for a dedication to teamwork and quality that has never been compromised throughout our history.
By being closer to the production facility, you’ll be able to see the manufacturing process and ensure that products meet all the most stringent requirements—something that’s hard to do when dealing with a factory overseas.
