The Cost of Cheap

Cheaper is always better – till something goes wrong. And something always seems to go wrong.
There is a growing movement in the global economy to look at the big picture of a transaction to see its value.

Cheaper can mean lower quality. That gets very costly when you have to refund, recall and repair products you’ve already distributed. Because we manufacture in the U.S.A., KEP adheres to a higher standard of proven quality control.

Cheaper can mean shipment delays. Erratic global conditions can affect shipping and distribution.
That’s just the beginning of the logistical nightmare – postponed distribution, key deadlines missed and lots of angry customer complaints.

Because our products are made in the United States, KEP can honor shorter lead times and consistent, reliable service from people who understand you, your business and your market. Time is money, and not having to wait for your product to cross the ocean saves a lot of time.

Do you really want to pay the extra cost of cheap?
