Why Buy Made-in-the-USA Products?

If you know Cascade, you know we’ve got a thing for hardiness and Made in America. Not only does Cascade Manufacturing make the most durable plant caddy on the planet (we’ve got the industry’s best warranty to prove it). We’re also proud to be American made.

Consequently, we loved reading about this new study by automotive data and research company iSeeCars which suggests that American-made cars, trucks, and SUVs last longest. The study, which analyzed data on 13.5 million used vehicles built between 1980 and 2017, revealed that many Made in the USA models have a good chance of reaching the 200,000-mile mark.

Among the longest lasting were:

Toyota Avalon

Toyota Tacoma

Toyota Sequoia

2

Chevy Impala

Chevy Silverado 1500

Chevy Suburban

3

Ford Taurus

Honda Ridgeline

Ford Expedition


“What?!”

Did we say Toyota leads the ranks for the longest lasting “Made in the USA”, but isn’t Toyota a Japanese brand? While not an American held company, the Toyota Avalon, Tacoma, and Sequoia (even the Honda Ridgeline) are all built in the USA – hence “Made in the USA”.


Why Buy Made-in-the-USA products from Cascade Manufacturing?

Cascade Manufacturing designs and fabricates exceptional products for the home and garden. But did you know that all Cascade products are manufactured right here in the USA?

Cascade’s most popular products, including plant caddies, shelf brackets, floating shelves and much more are manufactured in Cascade Manufacturing’s Washington State facilities.

Cascade Manufacturing remains committed to keeping manufacturing as local as possible, which helps us guard quality and provide flexible and rapid reaction to all levels of order volume for the most popular products. Cascade is very proud of the U.S. manufacturing capabilities it maintains, and welcomes the opportunity to expand manufacturing as the global home and garden market continues to change.

Three of the areas we are most proud of are:

  • QUALITY: Start with U.S. manufacturing quality for longer lasting finish and reduced maintenance and repair costs.
  • DELIVERY: In-house manufacturing provides the fastest and most flexible reaction to all order volumes with a lower carbon footprint.
  • TRUST: Product consistency, on time delivery, and a lifetime warranty from the most trusted brand in home décor.

USA-Made Plant Caddies

These proven plant dollies are perfect for large potted plants and other container gardens on your patio, deck, workplace, home entry way and much more.  With three different styles of plant caddies available, one of them is sure to complement your space and application!

USA-Made Floating Shelves

Our Stainless Steel Floating Shelves are proudly manufactured in Redmond, WA. And, they all come with our Cascade Manufacturing’s leading lifetime structural warranty.

USA Made Shelf Brackets

Speaking of staying power, our elegant Apex shelving brackets are as aesthetically pleasing as they are robust. Made of high quality brushed stainless steel, these brackets are corrosion resistant and can stand up to the elements inside or outdoors. A small light weight bracket with a tremendous weight capacity at a reasonable price. What could be better?

When products are Made in the USA and consumed in the USA, the manufacturing sector of the economy can employ people at all levels in the workforce. Buying American-made goods doesn’t just support the workers who make those goods, its benefits also ripple out through the entire economy.

As manufacturing companies grow they also need to hire professional services to support their business, such as construction firms to expand their buildings, accounting firms to handle their finances, and energy suppliers to provide them with power. The EPI estimates that every U.S. manufacturing job supports an additional 1.4 jobs in other parts of the economy. When American manufacturers prosper, they hire American workers.
