We wanted to produce YAKET ICE in the USA… most all of our projects to date have been US manufactured. We want to support US manufacturing and actually there’s not a big cost advantage to making them overseas due to the logistical cost. We researched producing the pack in the US. There are companies that product ICE packs in the US, but they are essentially ‘vertically integrated’ in that they make their own brands and are not open to producing for another company or ‘brand’ (or at least not a small one like us). So ultimately, we needed to work with a factory overseas (Brian has a lot of experience with this through his previous corporate jobs). We’ve been happy with the process… the factory has been professional, helpful, and responsive. We’re confident they’ll make us a high quality product. They’ll ship to us and we’ll inspect each one prior to pack/ship.
