Gentek windows, vinyl siding and aluminum siding products are proudly made in Canada. Does that matter to you?
We know it matters to plenty of our customers because they tell us. We also know it matters to many Canadians because research has found that nearly two-thirds of us have made an effort to buy local products in the past year, and 40% report that local production is an important factor in their buying decisions.
If you’re still not convinced, we’d like to make a case for buying Canadian, based not just on patriotism, but tangible benefits. Here are a few of them:
Ripple Effect: Every dollar spent at a locally-owned business has two to four times the economic development impact of one spent on an equivalent non-local business.
Reduced Emissions: Container ships are the method of choice for most international shipping of products. With so many of them crossing our seas, the amount of emissions created is vast. Shorter distances make sense.
Your Neighbour’s Job: Or yours for that matter. Buying Canadian ensures workers earn a fair wage in safe working conditions. The headlines tell us it’s not the same around the world.
Your Community: Locally-owned businesses keep communities thriving through taxes, charitable and social services. Non-profit organizations receive an average 250% more support from smaller business owners than from larger businesses.
You want the best product for your needs and you want a fair price too. With Gentek products you can get both, as well as the good feeling – and real benefits — that result from supporting the Canadian economy.
