Did you know that every time you buy an American-made product, you’re helping build your community?
When you make a purchase from Blackburn Manufacturing, you’re supporting a company made in the USA, which has helped to make Neligh, Nebraska the great American city it is today. Furthermore, by purchasing any locally made goods and services, you’re supporting and helping to strengthen the entire American economy. With the made in USA movement continuing to grow and new American-made companies popping up daily, there’s never been a better time to be a part of it.
Here are five reasons why:
More and Better Jobs Are Created
When you purchase a product made in the United States, that company has more money to spend on enhancing its workforce. As a result, they can hire more people in their community for more diverse and specialized positions, decreasing the unemployment rate and increasing the population’s spending power.
More jobs and better wages helps to strengthen local economies. As local economies grow, so does the discretionary income available to the community, enabling the community to expand and improve the quality of living for its residents. The community as a whole benefits from the spending power of these companies.
The Country Is Stronger as a Whole
When you purchase a product made in the United States, you’re helping keep the country strong by keeping companies at home. After all, when products are from the U.S., they’re made locally with local resources.
As a result, the country becomes more self-reliant and less dependent on other countries for their production needs. This also helps keep jobs from going overseas, further strengthening your local economy.
The money spent on manufacturing and purchasing American-made goods also goes toward paying for research and development at American universities and companies, which means that the country can continue to innovate and make breakthroughs in science and medicine.
More Control Over Labor Standards
By supporting American made companies and advocating for there to be more USA born and bred companies, you are helping to ensure that proper labor standards are upheld. It’s much more difficult to monitor the quality of labor of a company that is overseas or of a job that is outsourced overseas.
In the U.S., we often have better labor standards that not only equate to higher-quality goods, but to a higher quality of well-being for workers. It’s too easy to enjoy products and not think at all about the individuals who made them, but we should become more aware of those who labor to make the things we use. By purchasing products made in the USA, you’re helping to strengthen more businesses that uphold high labor standards providing higher quality jobs.
American Made Products Are Higher Quality
American-made products are more reliable because they are built to last for years or even decades, as opposed to only a few months or years like some imported goods.
The materials used in making our products are often superior to those used overseas. This means that they will perform better over time and not require replacement after just a few uses. As a result, many Americans prefer buying items that they know will last longer without breaking down on them at the wrong moment!
Further still, it’s no secret that people want something built with quality craftsmanship rather than with cheap parts thrown together. When you buy a product made in the USA, it will be built with the best materials and by people with the best training. As a result, it will be more reliable and last longer than similar products from other countries.
American Made Products Support American Values
When you choose a product made in the USA, you’re helping to support American values. There’s something to be said for buying products made in the country you live in.
When a company is from the USA, its employees and workforce are also local. This helps them feel invested in the community and makes them more likely to become active participants in it, which keeps a community strong.
By purchasing American-made products, you’re supporting our values as a country.
While getting used to made-in-the-USA products might take some time, the benefits far outweigh any struggles you might encounter. Not only will you be supporting local businesses and communities by choosing American-made goods over their foreign counterparts, but you’ll also be helping yourself by getting better quality.
So whether you’re looking for ways to build your local community or want better value from your purchases, buying American is a great option. Blackburn Manufacturing is an American made company, and we love that we’ve been able to help support our local community of Neligh and its economy for nearly 70 years.
