We value hard work, continual improvement and obsessively striving to be the best. We believe those principles have shaped America to be the greatest nation in the world. When we started Grip6 a couple years ago, we committed to making great products in the United States. At the time, we didn’t realize how difficult that would be. We’ve struggled to find high quality American materials and suppliers that lived up to our expectations.
As a natural result of that struggle and our commitment to make a truly American product, we have continually brought more of our manufacturing in-house. It hasn’t been an easy task, but it has been a blessing in disguise.
It turns out, in-house manufacturing provides benefits in a number of ways:
We know exactly when something isn’t right or a process has drifted. We find the problem almost immediately and fix it on the spot before it becomes a major problem or product recall.
Shorter Lead Times
We rarely run out of inventory because we turn our products around in a matter of days, not months.
We keep minimal inventory on hand because we produce our belts on an as needed basis.
We design and build the machines that make our products. We change and redesign processes on the spot to improve quality.
Fast Product Development
We don’t get bogged down waiting on other design companies for our products. We do the product and process design together.
We believe we have created a genuine American product and that is why we don’t hesitate to offer an unlimited lifetime guarantee.
Thanks for supporting us!
