Our clients often ask us about the pros and cons of manufacturing in the United States and International so we wanted to record a short video to explain some things to think about when choosing which country to manufacture apparel.
When choosing to manufacture in United States or International, there are 7 main things to consider:
1) Source of fabric
2) Quantity of garments produced in program
3) Type of garments being produced
4) Price demands
5) Legal environment
7) Delivery Periods
As example, there are unit and fabric minimums for it it make sense when manufacturing overseas. The United States Government, covered under Berry Amendment requires USA manufacture and USA components for military uniforms.
