A recent survey conducted by the Reshoring Institute showed that 69.4% of Americans prefer products that were manufactured in America, even if they have to spend more for those products.
With such a large percentage of buyers preferring American-made products, we knew we needed to continue manufacturing as many of our products as possible right here in the USA. This is one of the biggest reasons Elite Survival Systems continues to manufacture many products in the US.1. Boosts American Economy
Domestically-produced products have a big impact on the US's economic growth. This is one of the reasons we wanted to produce as many products as we could domestically, and we will strive to continue doing so in the coming years.2. Creates US Jobs
When you buy products manufactured in the US, you are helping to ensure that more jobs are available for US workers.
3. Better Quality Standards
From increased quality standards to fair labor laws, US production offers higher quality products, and you can rest assured knowing the items were manufactured ethically. At Elite Survival Systems, we still produce the majority of our products in the US, and we have strict standards we measure each product against to ensure we're providing unrivaled quality every time.
4. Better for the Environment
Buying American-made products helps eliminate fuel and carbon emissions that result from importing your products into the US. US manufacturers are also required to abide by the Clean Air Act, whereas overseas manufacturers may not be held to such high economical standards.
5. Promotes US Independence
By supporting US manufacturers, you help promote American independence. With many manufacturers outsourcing all labor overseas, it is important to support the remaining domestic manufacturers, like Elite Survival Systems, whenever possible.
Our Made in the USA Legacy
We are family-owned and operated and located in Washington, MO. Assault Systems™, the first and original manufacturer of nylon holsters and cases, was founded in 1979 to provide cases, holsters, and gear bags to law enforcement, government agencies, and firearms enthusiasts. To provide the best possible quality, Assault Systems™ developed high manufacturing and quality standards that remain unmatched. Assault Systems™ quickly became known for developing the most rugged, hard-use nylon products in the world.
In 2003, Elite Survival Systems was founded with the desire not only to continue producing with the same high quality standards, but to expand that concept into a vast array of products used by law enforcement and military personnel, shooting and hunting enthusiasts, and outdoor adventure enthusiasts - as well as products used for concealed carry and discreet transport. We honor the Assault Systems™ legacy by continuing to manufacture many of our products right here in the US and by offering a lifetime guarantee on all products sold. One example of this is our Assault Systems™ cases, which have been made in the USA since 1979.
When you buy from Elite Survival Systems, you are not only purchasing a quality product; you’re also supporting a family-owned, American business that maintains top manufacturing and quality standards.
