Anybody familiar with sourcing within the US? I know this is a more expensive route to take but I’d like to at lease see what options and prices are available. Research never hurts.

It might just be my product, but I really did try and find a supplier in the US and I had no luck. ThomasNet seemed to be a dud, but I’d love some suggestions as well if there are other sites out there.

Yes. Google. Call. Rinse and Repeat.

Sourcing in the us is amazing because there’s no dealing with shipping. Everyone accepts credit cards. Higher reliability, accountability, and legal understanding.

It depends on the type of item. Certain metal types are found in different countries, like galvanized is usually from china or mexico. We have a lot of aluminum products here. Cheaper plastics are overseas but more expensive PVC is here. I have found factory owners that have the molds I need but would rather sit idle than make a deal and others starving to make a buck and will make something off a prototype for you. It also depends on the actual process and the waste generated. If it generates waste, the price is high here but in other countries they will just dump waste wherever. I used to get a product overseas that was not made here because of filtration and air quality requirements being too tough, you go to the Chinese factory and they don’t even wear masks. Maybe look for similar products to try to figure out how they are made and detective your way to a factory.
