According to the Austin Business Journal, Apple CEO Tim Cook, when speaking to the shareholders at the company’s annual meeting, said that the tech giant remains committed to U.S. manufacturing, reminding those assembled that two-thirds of Apple employees work in the United States. Of course, that also means that a third of Apple’s workforce is located overseas. Although that sounds much less positive, the good news for our local economy is that 6000 residents of Austin, Texas, earn a paycheck from Apple.
BOXX employs but a fraction of that labor force, but then again, the core of our business is building professional grade computer workstations, not smart phones. Nevertheless, since Apple was once committed to the media &entertainment market we serve, it must be said that our state-of-the-art hardware solutions (including the custom chassis), are designed, built, tested, sold, and supported in the USA. For VFX artists, animators, and motion media pros, as well as engineers, product designers, architects, and others, that’s the value-add in choosing BOXX.
Without fail, U.S. political or economic news these days includes politicians and corporations talking about bringing American manufacturing back home. Talk is cheap. Apple manufactures in China. HP does too (along with Mexico). Dell is in Mexico as well, in addition to Asia, South America. . .you get the idea. I wish all these multi-national commodity computer manufacturers would bring those jobs and dollars back to our shores, but I would also ask that when you see these stories, keep in mind that BOXX never left.
For 21 years, industry publications, benchmark tests, and (of course) the recommendations of customers worldwide—from high profile corporations, firms, and studios, to small businesses and independent operators, have heralded the power and performance of BOXX workstations and rendering systems. But if you delve deeper, you’ll also discover what “Made in the USA” means to our customers. To them, it’s more than a slogan. The same goes for us.
The expert BOXX performance specialist who listens to your workflow issues and provides you with the specific solution, the engineers at BOXXlabs who design and thoroughly test your BOXX solution, the skilled production techs who build it, and the professionals of legendary BOXX Technical Support who can solve any problem you may encounter, can be found at BOXX headquarters in Austin, Texas. And the revenue? It stays here too.
No other U.S.-based computer company can make that claim.
