For every $1 spent on products made in the United States, $1.35 is reinvested into the American economy. When we choose to buy products made in the U.S., everyone benefits. Not only does this support American jobs, but it also helps to create new jobs and enrich our communities. Communities such as Dallas, TX, where Tidel calls home.
Since our inception, Tidel has been at the forefront of creating market-leading cash management solutions for the retail industry. Solutions born and bred from our industry-recognized, U.S.-based design and manufacturing center where all things happen.
Tidel began in 1978 as a part of the Southland Corporation (now 7-Eleven, Inc.), when we invented the Timed Access Cash Controller (TACC). This robbery deterrent product has become familiar to retail store operators worldwide. The TACC was the flagship product of our manufacturing operation for many years, and today this operation supports the broadest portfolio of cash management systems in the market. All of these systems are made right here at home, in Texas.
According to Don Buckner, entrepreneur and founder of web directory MadeintheUSA.com, if every American spent an extra $3.33 on American-made products annually, close to 10,000 new U.S. jobs would be created. If home builders used only 5% more U.S.-made products, 220,000 jobs would be created. Tidel’s decision to ensure that all of our products are manufactured in the U.S. was made with an audience in mind that greatly surpasses our customer base. Buying American is important for everyone.
Consider the advanced technology and quality that goes into a Tesla vehicle, or the baseball bats made by Louisville Slugger. While one is a relatively new market entrant within its category, the other has been around for 150 years. Despite this disparity in their ages, both organizations have made it apparent that building their products in America is the best option for them, to create the solutions required to best serve the needs of their customers.
At Tidel, all key corporate functions are executed under one roof in our Dallas, TX headquarters location. This includes design, engineering, quality, supply chain, manufacturing, sales and distribution. Having these functions located in the same facility gives us the best opportunity to create cash management solutions that adhere to the rigid quality and user-friendly standards that our customers and partners expect from us. And because our facility is in Dallas, Tidel prides itself on being a contributor to not only the American economy, but also to the economy of North Texas.
Our goal at Tidel is to create long-lasting partnerships with our customers and channel partners. We do this by providing the latest in cash management technologies and outstanding user experience, while adhering to the stringent quality standards that have been a cornerstone of our history since Day 1. This means our cash management systems will always be American made. It’s an approach that has worked well for us for over 38 years.
