Foreign imports… a cause for concern?

Many of you rely on imports for your various products. Did you know that much of the global economy moves by water? On December 30th, 2012, container ports along the East and Gulf Coast were almost shut down due to a labor contract dispute with the longshoremen’s union.  These ports handle nearly 50 percent of container shipments to the United States. Thankfully, a federal mediator intervened and delayed this action until January 28th, 2013.  If no agreement is reached by then, delivery of your products may very well be delayed!

Considering our competitive business world today, this dock strike could mean that your products, including your “Point of Purchase” displays, may not arrive in time to meet your customers in store required delivery date.

Here at Sharn Enterprises, we take pride in creating quality display products made exclusively in  —-   AMERICA!     


Sharn Enterprises is a domestic manufacturer of Point of Purchase products.  We have been in business for over 38 years.  In this time of uncertainty, your customers want to be able to rely on good old American quality, reliability, and service.   Don’t you?

As Sharn’s customer, we want to help you reduce your overall costs.  Don’t order more than you need just to fill a container or to comply with a minimum order restriction.  At Sharn, we gladly accept smaller type orders.  We also offer you regular credit terms, so you don’t have to pay for all of your products based only on a sample that you approved over 8 weeks ago.

At Sharn, you can speak locally to us, not to a machine or call center somewhere overseas. Our lead time is much quicker, our American quality better, and your shipping costs will also be much lower!
