Why Made in the USA Matters.

Friday, September 16th, 2016

“Made in the USA” is more than a catchy slogan. It’s about supporting American jobs, factories, and the environment.

For the sports flooring companies that produce their products outside of the U.S., offshoring is all about making a larger profit through the exploitation of dirt-cheap labor. It’s very rare that product quality, corrupt political systems, human rights, or horrific environmental costs are ever considered when exporting manufacturing overseas. Not to mention consideration of the cost to U.S. economy by exporting not only jobs but also the closing of our factories right here in our hometowns.

All SnapSports Athletic Surfaces are made in the USA

SnapSports is a family run company. We design, engineer, manufacture, and ship all of our modular sports flooring products from our headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah. We are honored to support the local economy by providing well-paying jobs to more than 125 employees and to support an even larger dealer network.

Through our “keeping it green” initiative we’re deeply committed to the environment. As a result, SnapSports meets California environmental standards for manufacturing and residential installation. And since we don’t ship our entire product line across the pacific, we drastically reduce our potential carbon footprint.

Quality and value are what drives us. We make our flooring in our factory; a third party overseas vendor does not manufacture it. Therefore, we directly control the quality of our products. Because of our management system, commitment to manufacturing high-quality products, and excellent customer service, we have been awarded the ISO 9001:2008 certification. The quality and value of our flooring are why so many top names in athletics, like the NBA and AUU, choose to use our floors.
