American Made PPE: 5 Benefits to Made In America PPE

American Made PPE

At AWXC our American made PPE products are something that we’re exquisitely proud of. There are many benefits to purchasing American made PPE products, and today that’s exactly what we’re going to be talking about!

American Made PPE: 5 Benefits to Made In America PPE

1. Quality Products

Unfortunately, not every country around the globe has the same strict quality control procedures as the United States. This means that products that are produced in countries other than the United States can be made from inferior materials or be the result of shoddy workmanship. What does this mean for you? It means that personal protective equipment that you purchase from overseas may be inferior quality and put you and your colleagues and co-workers at risk for exposure to harmful substances.

At AWXC, we maintain exceptionally high standards when it comes to the quality of materials that we use and the quality of labor that goes into making each of our face shields.

2. Production Time

At AWXC, our production time is very short. This means that when you purchase your face shield from us, you don’t have to wait for an extended period to get that shield in hand. This is particularly important when time is of the essence as to when you receive your face shield.

Unlike our rapid production time, when you purchase a face shield from overseas, you often have to wait for an extended period of time for your shield to be manufactured. The reason for this is because larger overseas manufacturing plants often will not run a manufacturing order until a certain number of face shields have been ordered. So, if you only want four face shields, but the manufacturer will not begin manufacturing until 1,000 face shield orders have been received,  you are going to have to wait until someone else orders the remaining 996 face shields before production will begin on your order.

3. Faster In-Hand Delivery Time

Another common problem with shopping non-US made face coverings, is that even once manufacturing is complete, delivery time can be ridiculous! Unless you are willing to pay twice what it cost to purchase the product to have it shipped via air, you are going to have to rely on freight shipping or parcel post to receive your product. What does cheaper shipping mean? It means that you may have to wait MONTHS before you actually get your hands on your PPE face mask. Of course, this can be a huge problem because it means that you may not have that PPE when you need it.

When you purchase a made in the U.S. product, however, you aren’t limited by delivery times because delivery is domestic. Domestic delivery means that at the most, your order will take a week to 10 days to arrive. This difference in delivery times can make an incredible difference, particularly when you work in a field where you regularly rely on PPE for protection.

4. Supporting the Domestic Economy

One of the biggest benefits of purchasing products that have been made in the U.S. is that you are supporting the domestic economy. During this time in particular the U.S. economy is hurting and many U.S. workers and businesses are in desperate need of our support. We owe it to our fellow countrymen and women to support them as much as we can. For you, that means purchasing American made products, for us, that means employing Americans to create those American made products!

Conversely, when you purchase PPE items from companies that manufacture them overseas, you are sending employment opportunities overseas. Not only that, but you are pumping your money into foreign economies rather than supporting the U.S. economy during this difficult time!

5. Product Support

When you purchase a product that has been made in America, that product almost always comes with a warranty. Making a claim on that warranty is relatively fast when the company that you work with is reputable. Now, products made outside of America sometimes come with warranties too, but what do you suppose happens when you need to make a claim on that warranty? Assuming you get a free return (if you don’t, you’re looking at paying overseas shipping), you have to then wait for the returned product to arrive at the manufacturer’s plant an then you have to wait again for your repaired product or your replacement product to be returned to you…what do you do in the meantime?

Yet another reason to consider entrusting your business to a U.S. company!
