As we enjoy July 4th with family and friends, we have a lot to celebrate. America, freedom, loved ones, hot dogs… There are so many reasons – and domestic manufacturing is one of them!

Domestic manufacturing operations lead to economic growth and help the U.S. stay competitive in the global marketplace. Reports from the Manufacturing Institute indicate that each dollar’s worth of manufactured goods creates another $1.34 of value elsewhere in the economy.

KEP is proud to manufacture all of our products in the U.S. and we are the ONLY domestic manufacturer of natural rubber latex tubing!

Developing and keeping manufacturing operations in the U.S. not only means a better economy and more jobs in our communities, but also means quality, consistent products and customer service for customers in every industry.

No delayed shipments because of unforeseen overseas weather events or other issues. No poor customer service that leads to lapses in communication, impeding the ability to stick to the timeline or resulting in products that don’t match customer’ exacting specifications.

Delaying a product launch, dealing with damaged or inconsistent products, recalls and other issues mean money lost. We aim to form partnerships, not profit off of a quick manufacturing transaction – so we make sure our customers are satisfied with the entire process, from prototype to packaged product.

Show your American pride this season and beyond by choosing domestic manufacturing and American-made quality!
