Made in the United States
At FORMUFIT, we are proud of our American heritage. This is not a new concept for us, as it's been that way since our beginning in 2009.
Unlike some other online stores, we don't have a 'Made in the USA' section. That's because every single one of our products is manufactured in the United States of America. We do not import product, materials or labor. Nor will we ever.
You may see imported, knockoff versions of our products that state they are Furniture Grade PVC, but they certainly are not. Just because a product looks like another, doesn't mean it will function like another.
Sure, overseas manufacturing might promise lower prices, but at what cost?
All of our products can have their base materials traced back to the US natural gas deposits that they were originally drawn from. Our materials follow all North American compliancy standards; they do not contain heavy metals, phthalates, don't outgas dioxins and are completely non-toxic.
Overseas manufacturers have no RoHS, ASTM or other American standards to follow, so why bother? Imported PVC products contain everything from dangerous lead, cadmium and mercury to BPA and phthalate-based plasticizers, used in many imported PVC products.
Labor Safety and Opportunity
Sweatshops are rampant in third-world countries where many of our competitors copycat products are manufactured. Buying overseas products supports these violations against people and workers abroad.
FORMUFIT employs an all-American workforce, who receive a living wage, flexible schedules, full benefits and paid time off. FORMUFIT complies with, and strongly supports, all federal, state and local labor laws that help ensure safe and fair employment.
