Win-Dor is proud to be Made in USA Certified!
Made in USA Certified® is the nation’s leading 3rd party independent certification source for USA –Country of Origin claims.
Made in USA Certified® was created in 2008 after speaking with manufacturers all across the Nation on the obstacles they faced competing against imports.
Domestic manufacturers repeatedly stated that there was surprisingly limited oversight and enforcement when it came to companies claiming a product was “Made in USA” or “Made in America” which led to misleading imagery on product packaging and marketing claims as well as outright fraudulent claims.
Finding that there was indeed no universal certification standard identifying USA-country of origin marketing claims on products and that many consumers, like themselves just “assumed” that there was a national standard or process verifying these claims.
Additionally, consumers were being inundated with media coverage on the crisis caused by contaminated products entering the United States. This is due to the fact that the countries that export their products into the United States do not have the same health, environmental and regulatory oversight, safety standards or labor laws.
Furthermore, manufacturing plants had declined sharply in the last decade, shrinking by more than 51,000 plants, or 12.5 percent, between 1998 and 2008. Between June of 1979 and December 2009, a staggering 8 million jobs were lost in just 30 years. These stable, middle-class jobs had been the driving force of the US economy for decades and these losses have done considerable damage to communities across the country. Ghost towns started to litter our American landscapes while chained and boarded up factories were the “new normal”.
Win-Dor manufactures and assembles everything here locally in Southern California using parts and materials primarily made here as well. Most importantly though, because we make our products in our local factory we’re able to inspect every piece that we create and solve problems before they are installed in your home.
And, we’re creating local jobs and opportunities.
We hope that this means just as much to you as it means to us.
