Why are wecompetitive?
Because we arefoundry to finish.
In our business, quality forging and machining costs are typically the most expensive manufacturing processes. These higher costs have prompted many American manufacturers to move to overseas supply chains. However, from foundry to finish, Water Armor® can now proudly declare it is producing a completely American made, cost competitive product that is superior in quality, performance, and durability.
We control our product quality from the start, beginning with raw materials into the factory all the way through the forging and machining process. This differentiates us from foreign producers and ensures superior quality and performance.
Our forging process utilizes highly efficient and automated equipment to provide a globally competitive cost structure for our American consumers.
Water Armor® products are vertically integrated to ensure an immediate and competitive supply of raw brass.
Water Armor® plumbing solutions are produced primarily from recycled raw materials which makes them more competitive and environmentally friendly.
Working with Water Armor® reduces lead time and transportation costs compared to ordering products from an international supplier.
Many people have the perception they can save resources and money by out-sourcing their production. We built a model that makes competitive, high-quality U.S. made products a reality.
To compensate for higher production costs, many overseas manufacturers may use lower raw material quality which could ultimately result in substandard end-products. Water Armor® uses only high-quality raw materials to protect the customer and ensure performance.
Because we have direct access to an American foundry, Water Armor® is able to absorb the higher costs of high-quality forging and machining. That’s because the economics of domestic brass rod in its raw material state provides lower costs to sustain complete supply line manufacturing.

Being American made from the foundry to the finished product allows us to maximize our overall value while creating superior, competitively priced, American made plumbing solutions. Water Armor® invites you to join us in the resurgence of American manufacturing and born in the U.S.A. quality.
