We Support the U.S.A.
Buy American Made!
How often do you read the label off a product you have purchased and see, Made in the U.S.A? Maybe a handful of times, if that. It is not news to you then that products made in America are less and less common. Many of our competitors buy from overseas because of lower costs. At SKS however, we feel it is important to have our products made here, at home, helping to keep our jobs in the U.S.
Wherever you see the above symbol throughout our website indicates that the product you are viewing was made right here on American soil. Recognizing the impact of having 85% of our stocked products made in the U.S.A. is one of the many things that set us apart from some of our competitors.
According to an ABC News press release from February of 2011, "In 1960, foreign goods made up just eight percent of Americans purchases. Today, nearly 60 percent of everything we buy is made overseas" (USA Today 1 ). We feel that it is important to remain loyal to our U.S. vendors and keep our jobs at home. When we take steps to further support our nation's economy, our customers do too. Buying from us means you are taking positive steps towards keeping jobs in the U.S., and it means the same for your customers. We make choices that not only represent our company, but our customers' companies as well. SKS keeps your thoughts, needs and wants in mind when making any kind of decision; this particular situation is no different.
SKS firmly believes in providing our customers with the highest quality products. Part of making that a priority is what sets us apart. Buying American made wholesale products from us means you are certain to be getting a quality product. Unlike some of our competitors, we feel as though our customers deserve the best, and that is certainly not an area we will ever be looking to cut back on. We take a lot of pride in the products we offer. American made products are not easy to come by these days, yet at SKS, 85% of our stocked inventory is American made.
While many of our competitors buy from overseas at lower costs, since the start of SKS in 1986, we have remained loyal to American made products. We hope you can recognize and appreciate the significance of having the vast majority of our, and ultimately, your products made here in America. So stop searching for that needle in a hay stack of overseas manufacturers, and browse the thousands of items SKS stocks that were made right here in your backyard!
