American Made is more than just a phrase or tagline. It signifies a way of conducting business that chooses to do things better. It is a conscious decision to mitigate environmental impact, prioritize workers’ rights, ensure high-quality products, and promote stronger communities instead of being solely accountable to the bottom line. A commitment to American Made means a commitment to doing things the right way, the better way, for everyone, close to home and far away.
BETTER FOR ALL
WHY AMERICAN MADE MATTERS
BETTER GEAR FOR YOU
With a design team steps away from the production floor, concepts are refined into realities in real time, all day, every day. Research and development occurs in direct conjunction with the people making each garment by hand.
SUPERIOR QUALITY CONTROL
If there’s an issue, it’s solved in person that day, not months later during the next production run. This quality control allows better confidence in final products allowing for better satisfaction guarantees that the gear will exceed your expectations.
BETTER FOR WORKERS
Committing to US manufacturing means workers are paid better, provided health insurance and other benefits, for a stronger, healthier commnunity.
American made means workers are protected by laws that ensure safe and fair working conditions throughout the entire production process.
US manufacturing is the best way to ensure high quality gear is made by employees earning the paychecks and dignity they deserve for their skill and work that is the backbone of a company.
BETTER FOR THE PLANET
The US, and California in particular, is home to stringent environmental regulations. In order to be in business, companies must go above and beyond to ensure the environment and the places we love to play are protected better.
American manufacturing benefits from national and state policy that provides ample opportunity to recycle, source and produce renewable energy, and use highly refined domestic shipping systems that mutually incentivize sustainability and productivity.
BETTER FOR COMMUNITIES
Local workers can better afford to work where they live, creating a more cohesive and tightly knit community and more security for families.
EXPANDING LOCAL SERVICES
Keeping the costs of doing business local supports schools, maintains community parks, and builds transportation infrastructure that is increasingly geared toward active lifestyles and mobility.
THE BOTTOM LINE
Instead of outsourcing overseas to save pennies on the bottom line, companies who choose to remain in the US choose to invest and reinvest in the community, near and far, with practices rooted in long-term success, not short-term gain.
