Made in America. It’s a term you don’t see so often anymore. These days, companies are so fixated on improving profits that they’d rather take manufacturing jobs overseas than handle lower margins domestically. Here at Resort Cabanas, a division of Eide Industries, we go against that grain.
All of our products are proudly made right here in the USA. The way we see it, keeping our products American-made is more than just a commitment to our country: It’s a commitment to our customers as well.
Made in America: Maintain Quality Standards
There’s a reason why some of our cabanas can withstand near hurricane-force winds: our high quality standards. The level of manufacturing excellence that’s required to maintain such standards isn’t easily obtained. It takes years of refinement and building a culture around. While we won’t knock other companies for taking their manufacturing teams out of the country – what we will say is that it’s much harder to manage a company overseas than it is when made in America.
We’re regularly checking cabanas for quality, testing them for durability, and managing our processes as they happen. How? Because we’re right there with our employees. You don’t get that level of oversight from an international company. Our cabanas are known for their quality and are trusted by resorts all over the country. We’d never risk losing that trust by taking manufacturing abroad.
Made in America: Improved Timelines
Need a custom cabana built with a quick turnaround time? Or maybe your resort needs a dozen new cabanas by pool season? With us, it’s easy. Since our products are made in America, you don’t have to worry about the long international shipping times that are associated with bringing product in from say… China.
Our domestic operating structure means that your cabanas are built quickly, made to order, and will arrive promptly as promised. And if you need to make a change? We pride ourselves in our quick feedback loop. That’s another downside to international manufacturing – it’s much harder to adjust production when you’ve got to check through multiple suppliers and countries. With a simple phone call, our team can hit the ground running with whatever you need to get done.
Made in America: Fair Labor Practices
Here at Resort Cabanas, we believe in fair labor practices. The idea that employees can earn a decent living wage for a day’s work. That they can come in each and every day without having to worry about their safety and whether or not they’ll be able to feed their families. Made in America means made with respect for the workers that dedicate their careers to this craft.
Here in the United States, we’ve got laws that prevent the unfair treatment of employees. International manufacturing simply cannot provide that guarantee. From child labor to unsafe work environments, it’s difficult to regulate an overseas operation. Even if you’re buying from a reputable company, it’s much harder to be certain that their counterparts in other countries are treating workers to the same standards that we expect them to be treated domestically.
