Productmkr.com grew out of the question “what kind of products can SMEs and eCommerce businesses in the US and EU get manufactured domestically today?”. In a time when the old world order of free trade and cheap manual labor unravels – this question is more relevant than ever.
The problem – and opportunity – is that we didn’t have the answer. Hence, we embarked on a project with the following mission statement:
1. Uncover what products can be economically manufactured in North America and Europe
2. Provide truthful and transparent cost comparisons between North America/EU and China
3. Provide supplier lists and other relevant resources
4. Reach out to suppliers in North America and Europe to learn more about their processes and terms
We’ll take a practical approach to these questions, void of any hidden agenda. That said, we truly believe that there are opportunities for SMEs and eCommerce businesses to work with suppliers closer to home.
