More sewn products are coming back from China

American companies aren't happy with the quality of imports

Fieldtex Products, a manufacturer of high quality industrial carrying cases and other sewn products has recently grown due to many companies dissatisfaction with the quality, volume and lead time for products imported from places like China. Fieldtex’s ability to manufacture products in quantities as small as 25 pieces has made it a more attractive option than importing, where minimum quantities ranging from 1,000-5,000 pieces.

Few people today realize how difficult and costly it can be to send a sewn product overseas. One customer that Fieldtex recently built a prototype for had planned on outsourcing the manufacturing until they learned that the first shipment would cost over $40,000. As a start-up that was just not a viable option so they chose to have the product manufactured in much lower quantities and shorter lead times to better manage their inventory.

Fieldtex Products Inc. was founded in 1973 with 6 employees. Today Fieldtex employs 150 people with 85 sewing machines running everyday. in 2010 they were named one of the 5,000 fastest growing companies in America by Inc. Magazine! By focusing on quality, service, and meeting delivery dates the company has built a loyal customer base and regularly finds new customers through referrals.    

In order to deal with increased interest in American made bags, cases and sewn products Fieldtex recently launched a completely redesigned website The site offers an overview of the company’s capabilities as well as a gallery of past products which only begins to highlight the variety of products Fieldtex manufactures.
