It's no secret that Systemwash are big advocates of UK manufacturing and the raft of benefits it offers to the local economy and to the end customers using British made products. However the recent decades have seen an influx of foreign products into the UK market, and this is particularly noticeable in our specific industry dealing with hot and cold water pressure washers.
So why did manufacturing leave the UK? A number of different factors come into play here, such as cheaper labour found abroad, less red tape and quality control in some countries and reducing transportation costs. However, we are now seeing a resurgence of UK manufacturing, and a recognition of the value and benefit of choosing UK manufactured products.
Let's take a closer look at why this is happening and how UK businesses can benefit from buying local. Firstly the wage gap is closing. 'Cheap labour' in countries like China is becoming less cheap. There are also risks with using offshore manufacturing. Lead times can belong, and quality control can be hard. International transport costs are also becoming increasingly volatile.
Buying from a UK manufacturer like Systemwash gives the buyer greater guarantees and assurances surrounding the quality of the product being produced, how and when it will be built and delivered, and a far superior level of customer after-care and ongoing service - something Systemwash prides itself in and that truly sets us apart from the plethora of jet washers on the market today.
