Design for Rapid Delivery. The decision to make most of our parts domestically rather than in our European production facilities comes from customer requests for less lead time and faster product shipping. Manufacturing our products in the United States keeps lead times for our high-performance linear guides and motion systems to a fraction of the time it would take to source them from overseas. Examples include:
Of course, our large Italian facility still plays an important role. For customers with high volume orders, the factory in Italy often offers the most economical and efficient route to production. But most customers will benefit from our commitment to local manufacturing.
Convenient customer service. Local manufacturing also gives customers in North American time zones the ability to contact us during normal business hours with any questions or inquiries.
