Why CA Tech’s Made in the USA Promise is the Best Choice for Your Rig

In the world of aftermarket parts for your SxS, there are plenty of options but if you’re here, then you probably already know that CA Tech is the superior choice. We don’t say that lightly either - from our commitment to quality to the fact that we’re enthusiasts who know what you’re dealing with when you’re behind the wheel, we bring more to the table than just being a Side-by-Side parts brand. We maintain complete control over every step of the process from ideation, all the way to manufacturing. How? Because we even do that right here at home base in the United States. You may be wondering “why does that matter?” Aside from cutting down on shipping costs and the time it takes to get your order to your door, let’s talk about the difference American manufacturing really makes when it comes to the parts that wind up on your rig.

Quality Control

When “manufacturers” import parts from other countries, quality control can really become an issue. The sad reality is that most parts aren’t even opened and inspected before they’re shipped to you. In the best cases, they’ll open and check out your freshly imported components and do a quick once-over just to make sure nothing major stands out. In the worst cases, you can receive parts that don’t fit, aren’t welded or machined well, or may not even be the parts you ordered in the first place. Assuming you get what you asked for, there’s always a risk of reliability when you start putting them to the test on the trail.

When you buy CA Tech parts, we’re laying hands on your parts every step of the way. We have the chance to catch any issues at every stage of the process. Not just upon completion, but over and over again. Our name and reputation rely on delivering you the Suspension Components you need, with the superior quality and attention to detail that you expect.


American Jobs

We won’t even beat around the bush with this one; American jobs and the American economy matter to us. When you off-shore manufacturing to another, cheaper country, you’re losing an opportunity to participate in the growth and success of American companies. CA Tech, like most real American manufacturers, is a small business full of local employees. Buying SxS parts from us, means you’re helping our team to grow, improve, and innovate right here in the USA.



American Manufacturing Standards

American Manufacturing Standards are tough to meet and for good reason. We start with ensuring our raw materials are exactly what we say they are because not using the advertised materials to skimp on costs is not only bad for business, it’s illegal. You’d think that’s enough of a deterring factor for most companies but at the end of the day, that’s just not the case. For us, we’re not willing to compromise on our customer’s safety or the quality of our products just to save a few bucks.

Another plus for keeping our operations entirely USA-Based, aside from being held to higher safety standards, is that we can say with confidence that every member of our team is passionate about the parts they make because it shows in the final product we ship out. You can also take some comfort in knowing that we’re keeping our team safe and healthy with the best possible working conditions and that your SxS upgrades aren’t contributing to the sustainability of sweatshops, child labor, or inferior materials. When you choose CA Tech, you’re supporting quality parts made by highly-trained and skilled Americans who are always stoked to play a role in upgrading your ride.


Get What You Need, When You Need It

When parts are imported, they’re often thrown in containers and exported to the States on ships. That makes shipping times - especially when there are backorders - really tough to predict and control. Shipments can take months on a good day. Over the last few years, we’ve all seen what can happen when the ports back up, so what’s the plan? You can either find a company that makes what you’re looking for locally, or be prepared to wait, and then maybe wait some more.

We decided to take back some of that control for our customers to ensure we’ve got stock on hand, ready to send your way. Need it in a hurry? Maybe you’ve got a race this weekend, or you just want to hit the trails with your family ASAP. We get it, and we got you. Just give us a call, and we will work with you to make it happen with express shipping.


Warranties Matter

If you buy imported products, regardless of the price, and they break, we wish you the best of luck trying to claim that warranty. The unfortunate reality is that even if there’s a refund or a replacement guarantee on a website, the odds of success aren’t high. Always check the fine print but we wouldn’t wish that kind of stress on our worst enemies.  At CA Tech we know we’ve got quality products, so we rarely see a warranty claim come through, but our lifetime guarantee means that if something goes sideways, we’ve got your back. Invest in quality parts the first time so you can spend your time riding your rig instead of fighting with regret.


Make it Custom

Want custom parts? Custom colors? That’s easy when you’re buying with CA Tech. We manage all the color matching and special requests here in-house, making sure that we can meet your needs. We’ve got a range of colors available all the time, but when you’re looking for something special, we can handle that too.

Trying to get the same quality finish on imported parts usually means you’ll need to invest even more time and cash to take your parts to a shop that offers powder coating or anodizing. That’s assuming you can find someone locally, and that the materials used by the manufacturer can even be modified. With so many variables to consider, there’s no guarantee that you’ll end up with something even close to what you were looking for.


“Made in the USA” is a Status on Its Own

Let’s be real - when it comes down to it, buying high-quality, American-made parts is just better than buying cheap parts manufactured elsewhere. American-made means maybe you spent a little more, sure,  but also that you support your Country’s economy and you care about the quality of parts that improve your rig.

There’s respect attached to the way you build and maintain your ride and we build parts worthy of that respect while allowing you to add that custom touch, hassle-free.

No matter what SxS you’re planning to take into the wild, we’ve got real American-made parts to make it better, lighter, and stronger. The ultimate in American-made reliability from CA Tech can get you what you need when you need it. If you’re looking for advice, need help with an install, or just don’t know where to start, CA Tech has the experts on hand ready to answer all your questions.
