Most things we customers buy aren’t made in our own country. Most of us know that, because of the ‘MADE IN CHINA’ or ‘MADE IN GERMANY’ or whatever country it was made stamped into the label of the product. Some countries produce better quality products and others produce mediocre or low quality products and we still all get them.
You might want to say no to the following question, but the chances that the answer is actually true, is very small. We’ve all ordered something off of sites like Aliexpress andLightinthebox and Wish, right? And if you do say no, have you ordered off of Amazon? Or any other international site? Do you know most of the products you buy there come from other countries, even other countries than those products were produced in. You as a customer have probably imported many products as well, could be without even realizing. Things we get from these sites are mostly random things like: screen protectors, phone cases, maybe some accessories and some other small things that are way cheaper there. Most of these things come from China and are also produced there. Are you interested in those companies? Feel free to look for more information on the internet, so you will make the right decision.
We all know, companies get their products from other countries most of the time. That doesn’t mean said products aren’t sold in the country where it was produced. Take a motorcycle for example, the motorcycle importers are most of the time either dealers, or some kind of wholesaler the company gets the products from. They import motorcycles from a lot of different brands and these brands all come from different places. The motorcycles can come from Germany, but also from Italy and China, it all depends on the brand. The quality and development of the motorcycle also depends on the country. So is Germany, much more ahead in their developing game and their products are for that reason, much more advanced a lot of the time.
Depending on what products the wholesaler sells, and for what price they sell it, the countries vary. Clothing gets imported from China a lot, billions of whatever currency gets spent on clothing coming from China. Glass work gets imported from Sweden a lot, this comes from a glass factory called Kosta Boda. This factory also gets about 800.000 visitors a year just so people can admire their glass work.
