One of the most difficult things to explain in our market is the difference in quality between products that look very similar. Well there are significant differences and as they say-“the difference is in the details”. From the raw material, to the forging process, machining, heat treating, normalizing and final machining and/or grinding; there are plenty of opportunities to make a good product or a cheap one. Each step requires time, labor, expertise and quality control. If a manufacturer skimps on one or more processes, they save a ton of money but the product will suffer. TEN Factory and Motive Gear take pride in using the best materials, processes and quality assurance to be certain we deliver the best product we can. We use volume across many products to keep our prices fair and maintain a great value for our customers.
We are extremely proud to feature our Quality assurance lab located in our Chicago headquarters.
