Toddy Gear, a Chicago, Illinois-based supplier, will transfer the manufacturing of its promotional products from China to the U.S. beginning February 1.
The supplier sees the move as improving the speed to market for its products, decreasing lead times and improving product quality. The transition will also create more jobs and control costs for the company.
“We are a socially responsible company who strives to not only deliver impeccable products to our customers by promoting and influencing best business practices,” said Toddy Gear Founder Todd Gabel. “Our plans to solely manufacture in the United States will protect our intellectual property while allowing us to keep our products unique, and focus our resources on quality, adaptability and flexibility.”
