Bigelow Components Corporation Demonstrates That “Made in the USA” Still Matters With Cold-Headed Process for Precision Parts


(Springfield, New Jersey, November 17, 2010) – Bigelow Components Corporation, a leading manufacturer of cold-headed and stamped custom components for more than 50 years, offers a cold-heading process for miniature precision parts that many companies have found is difficult to duplicate when considering an offshore alternative.

Brett Harman, president of Bigelow Components Corporation commented, “We’ve had customers who thought it would be more cost effective to move production of their precision parts overseas. Many quickly discovered that increased transportation costs due to rising oil prices, hardware grade metal parts that are inferior, and poor workmanship actually resulted in increased costs and an end product that either didn’t perform well or didn’t perform at all.”

The number of product recalls in the U.S. has risen dramatically during the past several years, with foreign-made products accounting for the greatest number of these. When this is factored in with the devalued dollar and increased freight charges, many companies have begun to realize that what seemed like a financially sound idea initially, is not proven to be at all economical in the long run. This has prompted the return of many companies to American-manufactured products – miniature precision parts among them.

Harman stated, “Most manufacturers are probably of the same mindset as Bigelow. We understand that companies look for the best ways to source their products and that sometimes they make mistakes. With us, companies that thought they could save money and get the same product quickly realized that offshore manufacturing didn’t work well with their precision parts, so they came back. We’re just grateful that they recognized that superior craftsmanship, skill and expertise are too important to leave to chance. ”
