Benefits of Working with an American Manufacturer

Since 1947, APM Hexseal has been a leading provider of top-quality internal and external sealing solutions for various industries and applications. We proudly manufacture all of our sealing solutions in our New Jersey manufacturing facility. While many companies have moved their manufacturing operations overseas in an effort to find cheaper labor and production costs, we understand the many benefits of manufacturing in the United States.

Shorter Lead Times

When you partner with an American manufacturer, your lead times can be drastically reduced. If the component or product you need is in stock, it can typically ship right away, drastically reducing lead times. When products have a shorter distance to travel, it can speed up the sales process, keep shipping costs low, enable agile forecast responses, and improve the overall customer experience.

Quality Control

Quality is essential, and US-made products abide by higher standards than many overseas-made products. Local or geographically closer production facilities enable tighter quality control to ensure all products adhere to the required specifications and standards. If problems arise, it’s easier to catch and correct them, saving valuable time and money. In addition, you can be sure that all materials used meet all necessary quality and safety standards, making sure you’re receiving the best possible product.

Reduced Cost for Deliveries

Working with an overseas manufacturer increases the delivery time and costs. While manufacturing overseas may save on labor, freighting costs can diminish your savings. US manufacturers reduce outbound and inbound delivery costs, and there are a wealth of domestic shipping options compared to the few overseas options, ensuring a delivery arrives as intended.

Environmentally Friendly

Working with a manufacturer in the United States leads to lower carbon emissions and energy consumption. Shipping overseas requires carbon-emitting freighters and various other vehicles for last-mile deliveries. The “maker movement” is a trend emerging in the US, meaning customers are seeking local manufacturers to reduce the environmental impact of shipping goods internationally. It can be complicated to verify the environmental guidelines of overseas manufacturers. Clients can more easily investigate the environmental practices of the manufacturer if they operate locally.
