There are dozens of reasons to use American-made goods, but buying American-made chemicals? Why should it matter where the chemicals manufacturers procure come from, so long as the end-product is Made in the U.S.A.?
Because the American chemical industry sets the standard for global chemical production.
Noah Technologies is proud to be an American chemical company based in San Antonio, Texas. We take the responsibility of being an “American-made” company seriously, which is why we’re so fervent about the benefits of using American chemicals. Here are a few reasons to “buy American” for your manufacturing operation to consider.
Buying American-Made Chemicals is Good for Jobs
As of 2024, the U.S. government estimates there will be over 100,000 chemists and materials scientists working in the United States. Here in Texas alone, over 6,000 chemists perform their life’s work. Chemical development and production is estimated to account for over 25% of America’s entire GDP; to say the industry is critical to the success of our country’s economy is an understatement. For every job created in the chemical industry, six others are created in tangentially-related sectors. The American chemicals industry is an engine for trade, manufacturing, and economic growth.
Buying American-Made Chemicals is Better for the Environment
Products made outside the American mainland have a higher carbon footprint than American-made goods. The logistics of packaging, shipping, and trucking foreign chemicals stateside aren’t just a drain to the environment, they also impact cost. Importing chemicals drives up prices and increases the environmental liability of any American-based manufacturing operation. It’s an unfortunate truth that chemical producers and processors in less heavily-regulated parts of the world are more likely to violate pollution and labor laws we follow diligently here in the U.S. At the very least, purchasing foreign-made chemicals from an American distributor can provide some level of quality assurance based on the distributor’s obligation to specific U.S. regulatory practices.
Buying American-Made Chemicals Ensures Quality Control
Perhaps the most important reason to use American chemicals in your manufacturing process is the assurance of quality. American chemical producers abide by a litany of federal, state, and industry regulations designed to protect purchasers as well as the public. A few of the most common regulatory bodies known in American chemical manufacturing include: ACS (American Chemical Society), EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), USP (United States Pharmacopeia), and ASTM (American Society for Testing Materials), among many others. American chemicals are also more likely to follow compliance guidelines specified by independent, international quality standards such as ISO-9001. When quality matters for manufacturing, American chemicals are inarguably the answer.
Your manufacturing process is only as good as the chemicals it uses. Noah Technologies works with manufacturers all over the United States – and across the world – to distribute and produce high-quality American chemicals. Our commitment to quality is only one reason we’re so proud to be “American-made.”
