Like Some Of Our Competitors, We Could Build Our Screeners In China
Here’s Why We Don’t …
We could lower our costs by substituting cheaper Chinese steel for American steel. And we could hire lower wage Chinese workers instead of American workers. So why not go the low-cost route? After all, that’s what some of our competitors are doing.
It’s really about proven design and the construction of high-quality soil & gravel screeners. Chinese engines, cheap steel, and cheap labor will never be the ingredients of high-quality long lasting screeners.
Cheap labor and cheap steel lead to more job losses for American businesses. Ultimately it’s about your business and ours.
There are significant environmental costs as well. Chinese plants emit far more pollutants and all that poison doesn’t stay in China. Much of it blows across the Pacific and ends up here, in us, in our soil, and in our waters.
Which is probably why you don’t see “Made in China” prominently displayed on our competitor’s screeners.
At Argus, our manufacturing philosophy is simple: we believe the way to build high-quality, long lasting screeners isn’t by outsourcing to China. We believe in manufacturing great and proven products you can trust. We believe in building value for you and good, well-paying jobs for Americans. That’s why we build our screeners right here – in Grove City, Minnesota.
We care about our EZ-Screen products, the people who build them, and our customers that buy them.
