Why G.G. Sutcliffe invested in American manufacturing (St. Louis Business Journal Video)
The St. Louis Business Journal conducted this video interview with company president G.G. Sutcliffe in conjunction with a feature article that appeared in the publication December 7, 2018 (it was online December 5). St. Louis Character: Husky’s G.G. Sutcliffe Lives with Gusto is available at this link: http://bizj.us/1prsf2
One of the most interesting excerpts from the article is this: “All of our competitors were going to China back in the early ’90s,” he said. “What I realized was that we did not have good manufacturing process control here in St. Louis, and if we didn’t have it here in St. Louis, we sure as hell couldn’t get it done 6,000 or 10,000 miles away.” At that point, Sutcliffe began investing in American manufacturing, and today it has really paid off for the company as it nears $50 million in revenue. Sutcliffe said the company works diligently on being responsive to its customers’ needs, and the only way to do that is by staying in the region.
Thanks to the St. Louis Business Journal for their interest in Husky Corporation and in G.G. We think the entire staff did a wonderful job relating the many interesting facets of this story!
