WaterGym Water Float Belts are Made in the USA
Our WaterGym® Belts and most of our WaterGym® signature products are proudly made in the U.S.A. Here's why:
1. We LOVE our country!
Yes it costs more to have our products made here, but we feel strongly about supporting our U.S. economy and keeping precious jobs here at home.
2. Most of you love our country too!Given a choice between a product made in the U.S. and an identical one made abroad, 78 percent of Americans would rather buy the American product, according to a new nationally representative survey by the Consumer Reports National Research Center. More than 80 percent of those people cited retaining manufacturing jobs and keeping American manufacturing strong in the global economy as very important reasons for buying American. About 60 percent cited concern about the use of child workers or other cheap labor overseas, or stated that American-made goods were of higher quality.
3. We ALL love Quality!We get incredible feedback over the look, feel and quality of our WaterGym Belts. This is not by chance. We have a direct and constant relationship with our manufacturers, who also have the highest standards. We hand check every WaterGym Belt ourselves. We think we should be rewarded with the Guinness Book of World Records for "The Most Foam Belts Checked and Squished." Ha!
We've also had numerous offers to have our products made overseas at a fraction of the cost. But we won't because we believe in the highest quality products, highest manufacturing standards and highest customer satisfaction rate.
Over the last 22 years we've watched other companies try to knock our belt off overseas. The result was a cheap, inferior product that had that "look". One by one, these belts eventually faded off the market because smart customers would rather pay a few dollars extra for a superior product that they could feel good about purchasing.
