Well, let me introduce you to PURE Grips. Since 2008, PURE Grips has been manufacturing golf grips in the Grand Canyon State of Arizona. Intrigued? Great! Here’s a bit more about this US-based manufacturer and what makes them proudly “Made in the USA”:

Why is “Made in the USA” SO important?
Better Quality. Consumers all around the world not only prefer products that are “Made in the USA” but are willing to pay more for them too. When products are “Made in the USA” they are associated with better quality and durability. This is because products manufactured in the United States are typically constructed with higher quality components, which increases the durability and longevity of products.
Higher Labor Standards. Many foreign countries are popular for manufacturing. Why? Because goods and labor are less expensive. However, this comes at a cost to their employees due to the less than ideal working environments and lack of minimum wage (and age!) restrictions. U.S. employers and manufacturing companies are held to higher labor standards which are enforced by federal and state laws. So, think about this...When you purchase a product that is “Made in the USA,” you won't be contributing to dangerous working conditions.
Job Creation. As more manufacturing processes move abroad, future generations of U.S. citizens will have a difficult time finding relevant jobs. Supporting American-made products will help keep your friends, family, and fellow citizens earning a living wage.
Safer Products. Other countries aren’t held to the same level of product safety standards. A well-known example is the poisonous levels of lead found in tens of millions of toys shipped to the United States. When you buy products “Made in the USA” you can be confident that stringent consumer protection laws and safety standards are enforced to protect you and your family.
Supports Local Economies. When you buy American-made, you're initiating a chain reaction of positive effects. As you know, every “Made in the USA” purchase supports the national economy. More employed Americans equate to additional dollars to be invested back into your local economy.
