Where are Alumacore shutters manufactured? Right here in Southwest Florida. Why would manufacturing in America be so important? Commonly, turn around time is a major factor in the purchase of plantation shutters. Many per assembled shutters come from overseas with a turn around time of 8-12 weeks depending on the company. Unfortunately, even after waiting all of this time, there are still problems. What problems can occur? Often times, shutters come in damaged as they are traveling thousands of miles across the world, which means a second wait time of 8-12 weeks. Secondly, measuring mistakes do occur purely by accident. Did you know that 7% of mistakes made in the window covering industry happen from transposing measurements when ordering? Unfortunately, this also means an additional wait time 2-3 months for a new custom shutter. Lastly, shutters can be made with wrong color, frame or tilt style by pure mistake. Manufacturing here in the United States means we have a better means of quality control, as well as a quick repair time since mistakes do happen. Imagine ordering plantation shutters for you home to have empty windows for almost 6 months when accidents occur. We do not believe in long turn around times for custom shutters. We have complete control over the whole process from the start of your custom order to the finish.
