Office Equipment Made in the USA

Office Equipment Made in the USAThere is a growing trend in the United States right now of people looking for office equipment made in the USA. This is driven by a sense of national pride and a desire to help bolster the local economy. At ABC Office (found here) we actually offer a really nice selection of products that are made in the USA. Many of these products are actually some of the highest quality and best supported that we offer.

Before I go too much further into our American-made products at ABC Office, I would just like to say that we offer many fine pieces of equipment that aren’t made in the USA. To my friends outside the US, it should be known that my favorite paper cutters and shredders are made in Germany. The point of this article, however, is to help people in the US find American-made products for the sake of supporting American companies.

What I would like to do is list off some of our most popular manufacturers and their products that are made in the USA.

  • Formax (found here) – Formax manufactures a lot of their products in the United Sates. This includes their lines of pressure sealers, bursters, decollators, paper folding machines, mail tabbers and booklet makers. Few manufactures have this much of their product line made in America. Coincidentally, Formax products are some of the best made that we offer.
  • Lassco Corner Rounders (found here) – Lassco is one of the top manufactures of corner rounders in the United States. Most of their corner rounders, including the popular CR-20 and CR-50 are made in the USA. These corner roudners are some of the best built in the industry.
  • Widmer (found here) – Widmer manufactures a lot of their own date, time and number stamps. They are based out of New York and their products are very well known for their reliability.
  • Staplex (found here) – The bulk majority of the staplers made by Staplex are made in the USA. This excludes some of their cheaper models such as the S10P, SL and ST. Almost all of their higher-end electric and heavy-duty staplers are made in the USA.
  • Martin Yale (found here) – Martin Yale has been manufacturing office equipment for decades. Many of their products, including most of their paper folding machines (i.e. 1501x, 1611, 1217A, 1711), some of their shredders and all of their wood base paper cutters are made in the USA.
  • Traco (found here) – Traco I-bar sealers and L-bar shrink wrap machines are all manufactured in the United States. Traco is by far one of the most popular I-bar shrink wrap machines around.
  • Amerishred (found here) – As the name implies, these paper shredders are all made in the USA. The Amerishred line of shredders are designed for commercial and industrial shredding applications with many of their designs capable of shredding hundreds of sheets of paper at a time.

It’s nice to see that there is still a lot of high quality office equipment made in the USA still available. This list is up to date as of July 2013. As manufacturing changes and operations are sometimes moved, I recommend calling us at 1-800-658-8788 for an updated list. I will try to update this list as frequently as possible.
