Top 7 Reasons to Buy American
Since our inception, ECP has grown to be one of the largest manufacturers of helical anchors, steel piers, and waterproofing products. Our staff is committed to supplying quality products, services, and performances that consistently meet the needs of our customers.
Our products are made by Americans with steel made and melted in the United States. ECP products meet the standards to be labeled “Buy America,” “American Made,” “Made in the USA,” and “Made in America.”
Why is that important? Here are the Top 7 reasons you should buy American.
1 – Guaranteed Quality
At ECP, our superior products are made by excellent craftsmen and manufacturers who take pride in their work. With foreign-made products, you have no guarantee of quality.
2 – Provides Jobs
Investing money in American-made products is an investment in American jobs. Behind every product made in the United States are manufacturing employees, office staff and more. An investment in the American worker helps ensure jobs for future generations.
3 – Helps Local Communities
Vibrant and vital communities depend upon their residents and businesses. American-made products put money back into the economy. The paycheck an American worker takes home goes to pay bills, purchase goods and support other local businesses. Likewise, the business itself pays taxes and has a vital investment in a local community. A thriving manufacturing business will always be better for a community than a shuttered, abandoned site.
4 – Promotes American Independence
Americans are proud of their country and don’t want to rely on another country’s exports. The United States is a powerhouse in the global market. When you Buy American, you promote our national independence.
5 – Ensures Safer and Fair Working Conditions
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) oversees safe working conditions in the United States. Their regulations are designed to minimize accidents and promote worker safety. Workers in other countries may lack these rights and face unsafe work environments.
6 – Better for the Environment
Products produced in foreign countries must make their way to the United States. In many cases, that involves international shipping.
More than 90% of the world’s trade is shipped via marine vessels. Reports state if global shipping were a country, it would be the sixth-largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions.
They also contribute to water and oil pollution. Items shipped by air are even more harmful to the environment. At ECP, we’re committed to recycling and the environment.
ECP uses the most recycled product on earth, steel. We also reclaim production waste and reuse boxes as often as possible for shipping. Recycling is not just a word at ECP, it’s a life choice.
7 – Keeps Jobs in the USA
Once a job is outsourced, it rarely returns. The sad reality is once a product is outsourced and made in a foreign country, it’s rarely made again in the United States.
Opportunities for American innovation, ingenuity, and investment vanish when manufacturing leaves the USA. Instead of opportunity, what remains are blighted properties, unemployment, and dying communities.
At ECP, our greatest asset is our people. Our team is as solid as the American steel we use in our products. We create the products and tools that ensure the ground upon which we all stand is solid.
We’re proud our products are Made in America.
