Vista Industrial Products, Inc. has been in the sheet metal manufacturing industry for over 57 years! We have seen all the different manufacturing trends come and go as the economy evolves. As most of us in the manufacturing world know, the United States manufacturing industry has reduced drastically in size due to outsourcing overseas. This has been the trend for the past decade. However, more recently, this trend is slowly diminishing. Lately, we have seen many companies contacting us for their metal manufacturing needs that used to be dedicated to the foreign outsourcing of manufacturing.
Now, many companies are beginning to realize that going overseas to save a few dollars, might not have been the right solution for their companies. Sure, when you are manufacturing products by the hundreds of thousands, there is a cost benefit due to the low labor costs of manufacturing. However, many companies were blind to see the other factors that come along with going overseas, and have now become a burden for their company’s success. Some of these factors include: communication barrier between companies, long lead times, high shipping costs, less control, and low quality products. When companies depend on their product for their success, why settle for all these negative factors just to save a little money. Clearly from what we are seeing, the monetary benefits are not out weighing all of these negatives.
As a result, companies are putting a stop to the risk they have incurred on their business. Companies are now starting to realize that high quality products are what sell. Not only that, but who wants to have little or no control of their products as they are being manufactured due to the distance and language barrier? This is why companies are realizing it is Best to Stay in the US!
In addition, companies are beginning to realize that taking their manufacturing business isn’t only burdening their success, but also the US economy and have used this to be another negative aspect of manufacturing overseas.
No matter what is changing in the US economy, VIP has been able to stick by and remain a force to be reckoned with. Whether we are manufacturing sheet metal enclosures, to machined parts, to welded assemblies, we are in it for the long hall and strive to maintain our Integrity, Quality, and Value to be your Aggressive Partner for Success!
Keep Manufacturing in USA!
