Equip, Inc. is an American small business. We are locally owned and operated in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Social responsibility, community investment, and support of American business are all core values for us. We are constantly striving to achieve new goals in these areas as we continue to grow and develop as a company. Our entire team loves spending time in the mountains that surround where we live, and we do our best to keep this a beautiful place to live!
MADE IN AMERICA
Why is it important that we manufacture in the USA?
A 2012 survey of U.S. shoppers by Perception Research Services International reveals that 83% of Americans pay attention to whether a product is labeled “Made in the USA”. Our customers care about where our product is made, and so do we. Small business is the heart of the American economy, and by providing jobs with a living wage for skilled workers in Colorado, we are ultimately helping in keeping the circulation of resources in the USA, instead of draining our economy.
As a part of the USA manufacturing force, we are aiding in keeping America independent. Jobs and resources are right here and Americans are not forced to import.
We are also committed to upholding human rights. As a customer of Equip, Inc. you can rest assured that everyone who worked to make the product you are buying was treated fairly, given a living wage, and worked in a safe working environment.
We love our pets. A key member of the team is Scott’s Dalmatian, Charlie. So, supporting local animal shelters is something we love to do. The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region and the Dumb Friends League have our constant support. In the past, we have organized donations events and invited our customers to donate to either organization, and we are always looking for new ways to support these amazing organizations.
REDUCING OUR FOOTPRINT
Since we are located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, it’s hard not to have a desire to preserve the environment. We do everything we can to reduce waste and use recyclable materials whenever possible. As a small business with one location that combines manufacturing and customer support, we are able to monitor everything we do and reduce our carbon footprint in various ways. We are committed to keeping the USA clean and sustainable.
