If the pandemic has shown us anything, it has shown us how many problems can arise when our supply chain gets hit. In this case, the pandemic shut down international travel, so companies that relied on foreign parts were doomed from the outset. Many manufacturers had to shut down operations entirely until China recovered from the initial hit of the pandemic and could continue to manufacture critical components for other manufacturers.
While there were still challenges for companies that used American-made components, it was not nearly as bad as those relying on foreign components. As long as there were truckers on the road, parts were moving, and manufacturers were able to continue just as they did before the pandemic hit. Furthermore, even those with delays were down for far less time than those relying on overseas parts. This one factor was a make-or-break issue for many manufacturers in the United States.
Benefits of a US Suppliers and Manufacturing
More Jobs at Home – by using American manufacturers and suppliers, you are helping to keep more Americans at work, with the ancillary benefit of helping to drive the local economy. This industry, in particular, is quite rewarding, as the average salary in manufacturing is about $10,000 more than other popular work sectors.
Decreasing Costs for Deliveries – helping the economy is great, but business is business, and we all want our bottom line to be better. By using US companies, delivery costs are far lower than using overseas companies, which means your bottom line grows.
Decreasing Lead Times – as we saw during the height of the pandemic, order lead times had increased significantly due to the need for overseas parts. Not only do you avoid a logjam in situations such as that, even when all things are equal, the lead time for using US suppliers is dramatically reduced, meaning we deliver the machines quicker, and you get to put them to use, helping save you labor costs and making your staff more effective.
Higher Standards – I think we can all agree that the United States is way ahead of the global market when it comes to manufacturing standards. Yes, this does sometimes mean that prices might be higher, but when you factor in the benefits mentioned above as well as a product that will last longer and be more effective, you are actually saving money.
Customer Service – we have all been there when using a foreign company and trying to solve an issue. It is tough enough to get someone on the phone, let alone someone that can understand and help you. When you call into Omegasonics, you get a qualified expert who can immediately help you.
Benefits to the Country – pardon me for waving the flag here, but when you are using US companies, those companies pay local, state, and federal taxes. This means that your money is helping contribute to local, state, and federal programs, including infrastructure. You are helping to strengthen the country simply by choosing a US-based company that uses US-made components.
