American Museum of Natural History
What began after World War II as an experiment in sourcing from the Far East has positioned Econoco as the industry leader in manufacturing and importing high quality, low cost fixtures.
Over the years Econoco has produced goods in numerous countries. From domestic production through the 1950's we migrated towards Japan in the 60's and Taiwan through the 70's. As lower cost suppliers continued to evolve we moved our production to Korea in the 1980's and into mainland China in the 1990's. Econoco has investigated virtually every part of the globe to deliver the best possible product to market. Whether it's Asia, Eastern Europe, Mexico or Vietnam... the common theme in our manufacturing design is to migrate to the lowest cost centers as labor and material costs rise in existing manufacturing regions.
Today, Econoco maintains international manufacturing capacity of over 2,000 containers per month. Our factories encircle the world... in China (Shanghai, Dong Guan and Guilin); Tai Chung, Taiwan; Manilla and Inchon, Korea among others. These facilities provide over 1.5 million square feet of manufacturing capability and employ over 1,000 workers.
In the 21st century you need flexibility and agility in your manufacturing process. Econoco's half century of worldwide manufacturing experience creates the quality and value necessary to lead the industry in these hypercompetitive times.Alliances & OEM's... More Value Inside
