New Jersey's Xenna Corporation says it pays to manufacture their product in the U.S.
Xenna Corporation CEO Carol J. Buck says small business owners have many reasons to resist the outsourcing of materials or labor from overseas.
“I could have gone to China for my products’ production at a much lower cost, but we didn’t,” Buck says. “Why? Because I prefer to do business with Americans - folks who are close by at a plant I can visit. I also know that the facilities and raw materials are being quality-tested at each step of the process and that production remain on schedule.”
Princeton, New Jersey, based Xenna manufactures American-made natural foot care products that are sold nationwide through chain drug and mass retail chains, including Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid.
Buck says she believes American consumers and business owners alike have learned some hard lessons about the real costs associated with relying too heavily on imported products. “The result is a resurgence of interest in ‘buying American,’ and its supporters believe it’s the underlying key to renewing American prosperity.”
“Since millions of Americans are now unemployed or underemployed, consumers should be thinking twice about buying products made outside the U.S.,” says Buck. “Buying American is simply the patriotic thing to do. When consumers buy American-made products, they’re helping create jobs for Americans – taking a step toward a more prosperous future for everyone.”
Xenna's products are all manufactured in Ridgefield, NJ. The company plans to "Keep it Made in America."
