For over 30 years, Tecre's operations have been based in the same location in America's Midwest. Our products are not just assembled or designed in America, they are MADE here. The electric and manual button makers as well as the button supplies are all manufactured at our facility.
It's true that Tecre is focused on ordering even its raw materials from companies located around the U.S. The mylar, magnets, and even the steel sheets used to form the metal components are from the U.S.A.

What does this mean for you?
Not only does Tecre's U.S. based manufacturing result in better quality button supplies, but there are other benefits to be reaped as well! What about access? How accessible support really is at Tecre! When you call Tecre, you are literally speaking to people who are footsteps away from the area where the machines are made with skill and care. Our technical support is readily available and if the situation presents where a button making machine would need to be returned for repairs, you will know right where to find us!
Being completely rooted in the U.S. also means we are able to commit to the improvement of speedy deliveries and the flexibility to adapt to last minute requests.
What does this mean for all of us?
Manufacturing and sourcing raw material in the U.S. means adhering to stricter environmental guidelines and regulations as well as adherence to consumer protection laws and safety standards.
Tecre is also able to use recycled steel in their button component stamping process! It makes us proud to have opportunities to employ environmentally friendly processed for making buttons.
