From February 20-22, 2013, Integrated Textile Solutions attended the Global Pet Expo at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center. ITS showcased their “Made in the U.S.A.” marketing advantage: domestic transportation cost savings, compliance with U.S. Best Practices, environmental mandates and industrial performance standards, and the ability to collaborate and communicate without significant time zone differences, language barriers or need for transoceanic travel. ITS’s “Made in the U.S.A” accomplishes onshore production at offshore prices, and encourages U.S. manufacturing excellence. By building relationships at the Global Pet Expo, ITS hopes to help bring production back to the U.S.A.
