Pump distribution and manufacturing is global, but that doesn’t mean you need to look outside the US borders for great pumps and pumping accessories!
Since the ‘outsourcing’ boom of the 90s-00s, it’s become increasingly difficult to find pumps that are truly American-made. However, at FloRight, we still strive to carry as many made-in-the-USA products as we can. We truly believe in these products and think they remain among the very best pumps available.
Sure, you can get a cut-rate model from overseas, but you’ll probably be a lot happier buying close to home.
Three Reasons to Buy from American Pump Distribution Partners
- Better control and oversight over suppliers
This is the big reason that American-made pumps tend to be better than overseas competitors. Global supply lines are extremely hard to track, and when parts are passing through countries with low-quality standards, those parts become very hard to track. You can easily end up with counterfeit components in a final product, which leads to decreased performance and reliability.
When the pump is entirely manufactured and assembled in the USA, the final product is the result of uncompromised supply lines with guaranteed authentic components.
- Higher ethical standards
America still has some of the most stringent regulations on matters such as worker safety and pollution. When you buy American-made pumps, you can know that the workers were given proper safety measures, paid a fair wage and that the products weren’t created using methods that are harmful to the environment.
This isn’t merely an ethical issue, either. Well-treated workers tend to be better workers and contribute to the higher QC we typically see from American-made products.
- Supporting local communities and economies
With the ongoing disruption from COVID-19, many local economies are in poor shape right now. Buying American-made parts helps keep these local areas prosperous, which in turn, contributes to the overall strength of the American economy in general.
We’re all interconnected, economically speaking. When things are going well for American manufacturers, that tends to create the proverbial tide that lifts all ships. More domestic workers mean more people participating in the economy, boosting performance for every business located in America.
