Ball and Buck
Tell us about your business.Tired of declining product quality and the growing trend in outsourced manufacturing, we left our day jobs to pursue the American Dream — Ball and Buck's mission: team up with the best American craftsmen to build a brand that offers the finest quality and 100% Made in the USA products. Because we guarantee all of our products for life, we set high quality standard from the beginning. We decided early on that if we couldn’t build the best product here in America, we wouldn’t make it. At Ball and Buck, we are not just trying to sell “stuff”; We are telling a story to fuel a movement. Our hope is that Ball and Buck and other brands who manufacture domestically will become the norm and not remain such a novelty in the market.
What makes your business stand out?In doing business, having a greater purpose beyond just making sales has helped us tremendously. For us, creating well paying jobs in America will always be of the utmost importance. Equipped with this unwavering vision and a set of good intentions we have been able to make products that people can justify buying. Best of all, our Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee ensures generations of enjoyment and in the event that something rips, breaks or fails in any way, we will find a way to fix it. We have also launched several successful collaboration projects since we began in 2008. We saw these collaborations as an opportunity to highlight all the great things that can be made in America and have since been given the opportunity to work with incredible companies such as Dickies, New Balance, Allen Edmonds, and Tellason. From these partnerships emerged a wonderful community of Made in America supporters and inspired many others to make more socially conscious consumer decisions.
