Why USA Made?
Have you been having difficulties finding parts or equipment made in the USA? Never been able to find the perfect, custom end mill or coating? Being able to find parts manufactured in the U.S may be a bit difficult. However, Sussex Tool & Supply has around 30% of our products that are made, right here, in America. We have products all the way from the East to the Midwest and all the way to over to the West. Of course, we have products manufactured from all around the globe, including Germany, Israel and many other countries.
Additionally, products there are manufactured in America; help us reduce some of our carbon-foot print. Due to us buying, selling and distributing products from the US, we are able to source products that are local, regional and national. This in turn helps us to use less fuel because we do not need as many long flights or ships cruising across oceans and seas. Furthermore, we are more than happy to help American companies continue to make their products here in the USA.
