This year marks the 125th anniversary of Globe Composite Solutions. Originally started in 1890 as Globe Rubber Works in downtown Boston, Globe Composite has transformed itself over the past 125 years from a sheet rubber products company to a full-service, design-to-manufacturing firm for creating, molding, prototyping, and manufacturing composite components. Spanning industries from military to medical to marine to material handling, Globe Composite prides itself on its ability to provide outstanding customer solutions that are made in the U.S.A.
Why is Made in the U.S.A. so Important
Besides a strong economy and good jobs for the American people (which we all know about), products manufactured in the U.S. are highly important for areas like security and national defense. Globe performs a vast majority of its design, testing, tooling and manufacturing almost exclusively in-house at its facilities here in the U.S.
Another important reason why it makes sense to be made here in the U.S.A. is to reduced development and manufacturing time which translates into saving money and increased responsiveness to the market or critical deadlines. Despite the widespread belief that the most affordable products come from overseas, for many manufactured parts it's easier and less expensive to produce in the U.S. with its advanced technology and history of how the part was designed and manufactured.
If those two most important reasons don't grab your attention, here's a list of 55 more reasons to buy American made.
