From Patriotic to Practical
LESS SPACE EQUALS FASTER PACE
Edward Sokolofski, president of Chicago-based American Greenwood, a supplier company that sells both American-made products and imports, explained that American manufacturing can offer a much faster turnaround on item production, especially on custom orders. "American-made, obviously we can do custom a lot faster," he said. Sokolofski noted that this time saved can be a difference of days and weeks stateside versus weeks and months overseas. Kippie Helzel, MAS, vice president, sales for Erie, Pennsylvania-based Custom Plastic Specialties/CPS, another supplier who provides both American and imported products, agreed that better turnaround times is a perk of U.S. manufacturing.
