Manufacturing quality, American-made products is something we’re very proud of – and it makes us equally proud to play a role in helping our customers offer American-made products.

A new customer came to us with this very goal – making their product 100% American-made. At the time, they were purchasing latex tubing for their sandals product from outside of the USA. KEP had the opportunity to work with them to provide American-made latex tubing for their sandal straps!

“KEP’s customer service is a pleasure to work with and consistently helpful, and their products are outstanding! We acquired Kent as a supplier about 15 years ago,” said Patti B., owner of the sandals company.

“I am so thankful for KEP’s commitment to American manufacturing that helped us with our goal of an ‘All-American’ product. Our business was surprisingly strong this year during the pandemic. KEP backed us up at a time that, finally, everyone wants made in the USA!”

This customer’s experience gives us a strong sense of pride. We are here to provide the service that customers need, regardless of how big or small the company, and to help them accomplish their goals!
