By switching to locally manufactured goods you contribute to Job Creation, reduced Imported Goods and reduced Cheap Child Labour that takes place in overseas manufacturing industries. This has a major impact on our economic growth and unemployment rate.
Although it’s undoubtedly times cheaper to produce goods overseas & import it, it surely entails some concern with communication, and staying in control. Local suppliers, are more reactive than the ones further away and that facilitates communication. There’s also hardly any language barrier and it’s a great way to be present, available and oversee the pace of production.
Clear communication and keeping production under control also helps to eliminate hold-ups in customs and delays with overseas shipments. Making profit out of produced goods doesn’t come with an immense delay, so the return can quickly be invested elsewhere within the business. Also, if you consider using domestic labour you also contribute to the local economy.
Small-scale local production helps to eliminate the waste of unneeded products made to adhere to overseas minimums, reduce emissions and energy usage. Not to mention the waste caused during shipment: excessive packaging and labels, aligned with multi-channel transportation, emissions and cost of fuel. Don’t forget the cost of (clearly underpaid and sometimes child) labour operating as a mediator channeling all these processes.
Quality standards may greatly fail due to remote or missed communication. Many unexpected issues may arise, and hands-on approach is definitely preferred when trying to solve them. Fabric flaws and the quality of other minor production details can cause hiccups. A Local Manufacturer however, will have direct control over the quality being sent out and would be much easier for the customer to exchange, return or replace a product that has been damaged.
