North American Manufacturing

By Uncategorized

With the current state of our economy, it’s always good to see companies keeping their manufacturing within North America instead of following the growing trend of outsourcing their labour and production. The major thing to consider for those who do want to start trying to manufacture goods within the United States or Canada is what pitfalls might lie ahead of them and how can they learn from the mistakes of others since it seems like every month I hear another horror story coming from friends and others within the industry. This article is going to take place in the form of an interview between Patrick York Ma from MOTUS, Prometheus Design Werx (not up at the time of writing), and formerly the founder and creator of Triple Aught Design, and Dave Watson from Fight and Flight Tactical. I picked both of these guys for the interview due to their experiences in trying to bring manufacturing back home from overseas. I do want to clarify that many countries make great gear, some of which I am proud to own. This article is about companies who are striving to keep manufacturing in the country they reside in. Making jobs within their local community.

JDC Custom Kydex Magazine Carrier

By Uncategorized

Kydex gear is something where your most expensive tools you need to make it are a Dremel, toaster oven and a foam press… It’s cheap to get into and it seems everyone and their dog these days is trying their hand at it. You have some of the bigger companies like Raven Concealment, Off the Grid Concepts and several others at it but how does a small company get noticed. Quality, turn around speed, and customizability were certainly what got me interested in JDC Custom Kydex.
