“Made in the USA” Challenge Part 2

August 7, 2012

Blog from the President:

From my previous blog, no “Automatic Door Manufacturer” ever challenged us on “Made in the USA”claim—reason being—they make some or all of their “Handicap Door parts” in China or somewhere in Asia, India, or Vietnam.  As I see it, there is no other Automatic Swing Door Manufacturer exclusively manufacturing in the U.S.A–only DC Controls, Inc. We even identified who manufactures all major door components for us and the list is as follows:

  1. Aluminum Extrusion—Tower
  2. CNC Aluminum parts –Phasor Precision
  3. Investment castings–Dal-Air
  4. Electronic Assemblies—Phasor Technology
  5. Sheet metal parts – Wrico Texas
  6. Cable Assemblies—Phasor Technology
  7. Spring– Associated Spring
  8. Gear Blanks—Phasor Precision
  9. Hobbed Gears—CMB
  10. 10.  Labels– TGI
  11. Welding and Assembly—DC Controls
  12. Motors –Carter Motors

I am sure all of you are wondering why companies such as Stanley, Besam, IR, Horton and the rest of the motley crew manufacture elsewhere rather than build in the USA – CORPORATE GREED.

So, how do we fix this corporate greed?  Only specify and buy “built in the USA” automatic and handicap doors. Send this blog to all University Presidents, Government officials, State Officials, local Government municipalities, Government Architects and Commercial Architects.  We have an architect specification –so use this to standardize all your automatic door needs.  As we continue to grow, we will continue to add other automatic doors such as automatic slide doors and complete automatic window operators.

Therefore, please pass the word on that—“Made in the USA”—means quality and U.S. jobs.
