Many buyers worldwide are just starting to realize the enormous benefit of buying products and manufacturing capacity locally. But, unfortunately, it took a pandemic to make this happen, and those who have done so religiously can finally smile and say I told you so without reservation. This article highlights the top five reasons to buy your next press brake from a United States manufacturer.
1) Shorter Lead Time On Delivery
If you order press brakes made in the U.S.A., you can expect better lead times than ordering from an overseas company! With pandemic fueled bottlenecks in shipping, manufacturers find it challenging to meet deadlines due to delays in transportation. Therefore, if your machine is coming from overseas, you may need to wait months before expanding production. As a result, you’ll see an overall reduction in the benefit of ordering a new press brake for your business. In contrast, if you buy a press brake made in the U.S.A., you will get your equipment faster, deliver products faster and meet the growing customer demand for parts. As a result, you’ll make money more quickly, improve customer satisfaction and increase the R.O.I. on the new equipment!
The faster you receive your new press brake, the quicker you can grow profit.
2) Get High Quality with Press Brakes Made in the U.S.A
When you buy a new press brake made in the U.S.A., expect an improvement in the machine’s quality and the products they manufacture. Consumer Reports conducted a recent survey that shows that American consumers place a higher value on American-made products. Consumer sentiment is a driving force for economic growth, and the same behavior influences significant capital expenses for businesses.
As a manufacturer using a press brake made in the U.S.A., not only can you promote American-made parts, but you can also state that your equipment is also 100% American-Made. According to a recent Consumer Reports survey, almost 8 in 10 American consumers say they would buy an American-made product over an imported one. Furthermore, the report stated that 80% of consumers cited retaining manufacturing jobs and keeping American manufacturing strong as important reasons to buy American. More than 60% would pay extra to buy American.
3) Less Impact on the Environment
Importing goods from foreign countries creates hidden costs. As carbon emissions grow, governments need to tax at a higher rate to clean up the Environment. Overseas shipping is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions. By lowering your costs of international shipping, you can reduce your carbon footprint. When you purchase your press brake from a manufacturer in the United States, everyone will benefit from a cleaner environment and less energy used to import goods from foreign countries.
4) More American Jobs means local consumers have the money to buy your products
We might be preaching to the choir, but manufacturers also need to hear that their purchasing decision impacts the local economy around them. When something is 100% “Made in the U.S.A.,” it means that someone created it in the United States of America. It usually also means that American workers created the machine. By purchasing a press brake manufactured in the United States, you contribute to building local jobs and demand the products you are producing.
5) Show a commitment to local communities in which you live
Customers value companies with a commitment to the communities in which they live, and they will choose your products over competitors every time. There is a good reason for this sentiment because not only are you creating jobs, but your company is also making a lasting impact on the lives of individuals who live near you.
