A Culture of Entrepreneurship
Six Reasons to Choose Local over Global
1. More Jobs for Americans
NCA has invested heavily in U.S. manufacturing. While we know there are lower-cost solutions in the world, we offer a more personal advantage. We believe in partnering with each customer and take pride in our flexible solutions and the craftsmanship required to ensure each product and service is the perfect match for our clients. Other countries may offer bargain-bin pricing at volume, but at the potential expense of quality and ownership if something goes wrong. Place your business in the hands of NCA, a company that cares.
2. Reduced Cost for Deliveries
Outsourcing manufacturing overseas is a common practice for saving on labor and production costs. However, the price of shipping products, materials, and components halfway around the world has skyrocketed in recent years. Because we produce everything in the United States, we are able to benefit from significant savings on inbound and outbound delivery and shipping costs, insurance, jet/ocean liner fuel, international taxes, customs fees, and more. Keeping our shipping costs low enables us to maintain reduced production costs due to less overhead and we pass these savings on to the customer. Shipping domestically and working with American delivery companies also comes with more peace of mind: knowing that you are saving time and money by minimizing the errors that can result from language barriers or currency differences.
3. Shorter Lead Times
Living in the age of “The Amazon Effect,” people have come to expect almost-instant gratification. To meet these nearly instantaneous demands, many companies who manufacture abroad must keep large inventory stores on hand in the United States anyway. This can end up being costly in terms of paying for storage space, employing labor to control/maintain inventory, and risking the product expiring or becoming outdated before it sells. By manufacturing locally, we help combat these risks by saving valuable time in the production process which, is critical to successfully weathering unexpected market shifts. When goods have less distance to travel to get to their distributor or intended retailer, they can be delivered more rapidly. This accelerates the sales process, enables more agile forecasting, puts money in your pocket sooner, and, most importantly, keeps customers happy and creates an environment where they are willing to buy again.
4. Environmentally Friendly
We believe it’s our corporate responsibility to minimize environmental impact wherever possible. Reducing international transit and delivery makes U.S. manufacturing the most eco-friendly option, saving both money and energy. This reduction in international ocean shipping, one of the largest contributors of greenhouse gases, enables companies to produce a much smaller carbon footprint.
