As an American consumer there are numerous benefits to purchasing commercial and industrial roofing products that are made in The United States of America.  In addition to supporting American jobs and U.S. based corporations, purchasing U.S. made roofing products can improve the efficiency and ensure the quality of your next roofing project.

U.S. made roofing products are required to be manufactured in accordance with proper safety and compliance standards.  Foreign manufacturers are not always subject to the same standards that are required in the United States.  Purchasing U.S. manufactured goods also assures the products are made to meet specific quality guidelines. 

Efficiency and cost can also be reduced with U.S. made products.  Shipping time and costs are significantly less than purchasing foreign made products.  U.S. manufacturers can also turn orders around relatively quickly as compared t products that need to be shipped across seas.  Inventory and stock issues and expenses are minimal with most U.S. manufacturers, as they can generally produce additional product on demand.

    Tom,

    Excellent comments. The United States is poised for a resurgence of manufacturing growth over the next decade. Intense salary increases in developed Pacific Rim Nations will shift the balance of value back to the US. The US has long been the global leader in manufacturing efficiency and quality; over the last decade lower labor costs in developed and developing nations have shifted manufacturing of labor intensive products out of the US. However, based on expected increases in Chinese and PR salaries this advantage will dissolve and the US will experience a significant up tick of manufacturing operations.

    The Garland Company is in an excellent position, as a committed US Manufacturer, to supply construction and building needs to this growth. The Garland Company is committed to MFG in the US.

    The following link to a recent study by the Boston Consulting Group provides an analysis of the current global MFG situation and provides excellent information on this expected swing.
