December rings in the holidays with droves of visitors to the stores seeking those much sought after gifts. It is also a time for businesses to review. While people are enjoying various holiday festivities many businesses are enjoying increased profits and customer growth for 2013. Gratefully, our state of Michigan has experienced a resurgence in most if not all sectors of industry.
Although the media focused on the blight of Detroit and the bankruptcy announcement late this Summer we know what’s next. What’s next is a new generation of passionate, strong, world-changers who are driving the re-building of this great city. Nxtwall is excited to be a part of this team accelerating Detroit. Our project at Ford Field is a shining example of the powerful energy and hard work that is fueling Detroit and Michigan. Committed Michigan entrepreneurs and new leaders are striving to put Michigan in the pole position of industry once again. (Watch for updates on the Ford Field project in future blog entries.)
Michigan-made, Focused on You
As a dependable, sustainable, and creative interior construction company that is also Michigan-made, Nxtwall encourages you to buy local. A fertile and fruitful economy helps build the character of your locale and increases the well-being of each community. Sustaining local businesses provide jobs, vitalize economies and contributes to local issues and platforms by keeping money in the local economy. We know that communities that push to preserve unique businesses tend to have an economic advantage.
As we become more conscious purchasers and supportive neighbors we support the earth by reducing our carbon footprint with each local purchase and sustainable product purchased. With new businesses and products on the market offering new features and using more sustainable materials the product diversity and competition keeps innovation up and prices down. We can make conscious purchases that support the planet and our local communities.
Nxtwall’s manufacturing plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan works with a network of material, production, and service providers within a 10 mile radius. Reduced transportation between all stages of production lessens carbon emissions, fuel consumption, and labor, also resulting in lower product costs. Nxtwall is committed to the use of environmentally friendly materials as well as the design of reusable wall systems. Nxtwall reusable walls are some of the best PVC-free products on the market. Where did your coffee cup come from? What is it made of? What happens when you are done with it? As consumers we owe it to the next generation – and to our communities – to ask these questions.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint – Buy American
America’s economy is based around entrepreneurship. It serves as a key for pushing low prices and high innovation. Even if the products you need to purchase for your next building product are not manufactured in your local state you can still support your local community and reduce your carbon footprint by choosing to work with local dealers who offer products produced in the United States. When businesses pull in new customers and employees local expenditures increase and the tax bar is raised.
A sustainable environment helps pump more money into the local economy, creates new jobs and provides customer service that larger big box stores simply cannot. Build the kind of economic infrastructure that grows from local providers.
Nxtwall is a proud Michigan based company that distributes economical demountable walls for office and commercial interior design spaces throughout the United States with local dealer networks. Visit our website to find a dealer near you. For those who celebrate, enjoy a green Christmas.
