US-Made Frames

With all of the industry changes, distributors are left with a choice. You are standing at a crossroads right now. And you have two roads to choose from.

One is to continue to outsource your goods; whether it’s your cups, glasses, and certificate frames, or even your custom goods.

The other is to work with US manufacturers; ones who do not have to wait for overseas shipping, tariffs, or foreign holidays that shut down the country for weeks. In addition to satisfying the growing demands for products made in the USA.

As you are aware, there have been a few of articles written about this choice.

So, which road will you choose?

The US Manufacturing Path

Though there are not many manufactures in the US, and few can make everything you get from other counties, many distributors are not aware of what is even available. How many US-manufacturers do you know?

If you decide to go down the US-manufacturer path, then Bruce Fox should be on your list – we’re located in New Albany, Indiana, right outside of Louisville, Kentucky.
