Why did we make a “Made in France” product?
First of all, when we hear « made in France »,we are necessarily reffering to the origin of manufacture. When we were working on the SportBeeper project, one of our first wishes was to make a product that was not only “made in France” but manufactured entirely in Auvergne-Rhônes-Alpes. The first version of the product was already 100% french and the positive feedbacks we had was about the longevity and quality of the product. A l’heure actuelle, il y a des Sportbeepers qui ont plus de 10 ans et qui fonctionnent encore sans problèmes.
We tend to forget that in France we have a quality know how which is the best in the world. In some manufacturing sectors,there are companies that compete with China, so why look so far away when we have them within our reach. The Sportbeeper team believes that it is better to buy a high quality product that will last over time than a lower quality SportBeeper that will need to be replaced regularly.
A product made in the region also has an ecological aspect. The final carbon footprint of the product wiil be much lower than if we import products from abroad. In view of global warming, and the current pandemic context, making a product with the help of French companies while limiting this footprint is a source of pride. French companies in France must be promoted in order to preserve jobs and limit the importation of foreign products.
In conclusion, the regulations in France on the hygienic aspect are very rigorous. “Made in France” guarantees your good health and that of the manufacturer.
