Sigalarm is pleased to announce that all of our products are Made in America. We are proud to say this, and it reflects the spirit of America in our whole team. This is not to say we are against others who manufacture abroad or to impugn them in any way. In fact, our wireless proximity alarm was formerly made out of the country. But now we have seen to it that EVERYTHING we make is made here. We feel by making that happen, we have improved our company.
Made in America Means The Costs Are Lower
The reason many companies have their products manufactured overseas is to save money. In many countries labor is cheaper, materials are more readily available, and taxes are lower. This has changed, and we will save money because of local business alliances.
- Sigalarm makes weekly and sometimes daily visits to our manufacturing facility.
- We are within 25 miles of each other.
- They, too, are a privately owned business.
- Regular communication with their staff includes parts purchasing, engineering, and manufacturing.
- We have far less waste and shipping costs due to local production (for example: If there is a scratch on the paint, we would never take on the cost of returning it to China; it would essentially be a big paper weight).
- We now have secured much higher quality control capabilities.
Made in America Means We Save Time
The one big problem having products made on the other side of the planet is time. If a part is missing or an adjustment is necessary, it’s hard to do this from a distance. However, we can now drive a few minutes and take care of business with our partners. This saves time. Like they say, Time is Money!
Made in America Means We Are Helping Our Economy
We love our country, and we love our neighbors. Employing them is a great feeling. It gives depth to our business, and there is a better camaraderie.
Toby Keith wrote a song we all know:
He’s got the red, white,
And blue flyin’ high on the farm
Semper fi tattooed on his left arm
Spends a little more in the store for a tag
In the back that says U.S.A.
He won’t buy nothin’ that he can’t fix
With WD Forty and a Craftsman wrench
He ain’t prejudice he’s just, made in America
Below is the press release from our CEO Lance Burney:
Release 4-13- 17
Sigalarm hardwired legacy products have been manufactured in the USA for over 50 years. This practice has always guaranteed high quality and reliable products to our loyal existing customers and new clients. In 2013, production of our wireless proximity alarm was contracted to be manufactured overseas. That contract expired at the end of 2016, and Sigalarm is proud to announce that as of April 2017 all products are now manufactured back in the USA. Sigalarm customers expect quality products delivered in a timely manner. Any less is not acceptable. Our decision to bring back the wireless manufacturing was based on our ability to better control and improve these factors at the local level. In addition, we strongly believe in supporting a strong US economy in any way possible. With pending regulations, standards, and expected growth in our industry, we must continue to lead by example.
CEO of Sigalarm
Thank you for your encouragement and support. We are proud to be Americans, and we are pleased to do business in America!
