When RPM, Inc., bought the rights to the absorbent, waterproof material used in our mats it was already being manufactured in the United States. The quality of the material was good and consumers were happy with the product. Well, as the old (and grammatically incorrect) saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” So we didn’t.
All Armor All waterproof mats are still manufactured in the US. Can we have the material made cheaper overseas? Sure. Would we make more money that way? You bet. But we’d risk losing control of the quality. By manufacturing our product in the US, we are able to keep a close eye on the production process. We can detect issues, resolve them quickly and minimize the delay in getting product to our customers.
More and more consumers are demanding Made in the USA product. And, quite frankly, we’re proud to oblige. It gives us that warm fuzzy feeling to offer products made right here within our borders.
