Manufacturing products in other countries is vastly different from manufacturing products in the United States. While manufacturing overseas may offer cost savings in terms of reduced overall labor rates, U.S. manufacturers are having to be increasingly leary of intellectual property theft.
This, combined with higher overseas shipping costs and ever-increasing offshore labor rates due to the progressive sophistication of the economies of third world countries, has U.S. manufacturers bringing more production back home.
Many developing nations are also seeing political and labor unrest as workers are beginning to demand higher income and better working conditions.
Purchasing raw materials and components from American companies helps ensure better quality control in all aspects of a manufacturing operation. Raw materials coming from overseas do not meet manufacturer’s specifications on occasion.
At Omegasonics, all floor model ultrasonic cleaning and restoration systems, including bench top systems, are proudly designed, created and manufactured in Simi Valley, CA.
This ensures that we can maintain better quality control and process control in comparison to many the ultrasonic cleaners brought to the marketplace by our competitors. “Made in the USA” is more than just a good marketing slogan, it is a commitment we have made, and it is an investment in our country that will pay future dividends in many ways.
