Have you ever ordered something that appeared to be a great value, but turned out to be produced somewhere offshore with few quality and labor regulations? Or maybe the product looked good and even worked well for a few months, but then little gremlins started to appear. We’ve all been here.
Ordering something that was overpromised but subsequently underdelivered can be a real letdown.
When it comes to quality, many international manufacturers provide dubious parts and even worse customer service. This problem has become pervasive in recent years, with the internet serving to break down barriers, cutting out known distributors, and allowing fly-by-night companies to sell products around the world.
Even if you think you have everything figured out, the cost-benefit analysis of working with overseas suppliers and manufacturers can be incredibly difficult to analyze.
Have you taken into account lead times and shipping times? How about replacement availability or the possibility of your order getting delayed or stuck in customs?
Benefits of USA-Based Manufacturers
Avoiding German Manufacturers
Working with USA-based manufacturers has many benefits, but one of the motivations we hear about a lot is avoiding German manufacturers of EC fans with unacceptably long lead times and shipping times.
There used to be a time when overseas suppliers were the only viable option for EC motor technology, but supply line disruptions and delays have opened up new opportunities for USA-manufactured technologies to shine.
Mainstream is a New Jersey-based manufacturer with over 30 years of experience making coils and fan arrays for commercial and industrial air-handling equipment. This means you don’t have to worry about compliance with the Buy American Act requiring Federal agencies to procure domestic materials and products when working with us.
High-Quality Parts with Mainstream
You also don’t have to worry about low-quality parts with Mainstream. Our permanent magnet synchronous reluctance (PMEC) motors are made in the USA and assembled into custom fan arrays by our dedicated specialists in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. And because these PMEC motors do not contain rare Earth materials, you can be sure international supply line and shipping disruptions won’t delay your order.
If you have any questions, problems at installation, or need some help down the line, Mainstream is here for you. And you can be sure we aren’t going anywhere. We have been underpromising and over-delivering for our customers for decades and stand behind our products with an industry-leading warranty.
