Rather than writing another post about why you should consider staying domestic, we decided to ask a few of our customers why they choose to work with USA based suppliers/manufacturers, these were their responses:

Xymox had the honor of giving a tour of our facility to 28 Milwaukee Public School 7th grade students.

Screen printing has always been and remains a very versatile part of Xymox Technologies product offerings, we like to think of it as our lifeblood, every product starts in screen printing. As with most manufacturing processes, screen printing technology has advanced over the years; these advancements have helped the process become more controlled than ever before. Though significant changes have been made in technology, the basic fundamentals of screen printing remain the same.

What does it mean to practice Total Quality Management? According to ISO (International Organization for Standardization), there are 7 Quality Management Principles that companies follow to incorporate quality throughout the entire organization, every process, department, etc. (hence "total" quality management). Quality isn't just a department, it is a way of practicing business from top to bottom, everyone is involved in ensuring quality is a priority in everything. It is about process thinking and risk assessment, prevention, management, and documentation.
