SAN DIEGO – Dal Scott, owner and founder of Professional’s Choice Sports Medicine Products, Inc. makes a commendable decision to move a substantial portion of his manufacturing business back to Southern California. Production was originally sent to China in an effort to decrease internal costs and pass along savings to Professional’s Choice customers. However, when Scott realized overseas production was putting American jobs in jeopardy, he knew changes had to be made. Adding to the long list of products that will now be made domestically is the new breakthrough Professional’s Choice Comfort-Stretch Cinch. The move allowed Scott to save upwards of 20 American jobs, without increasing retail prices. “We conducted some research within the industry and were surprised to discover advanced computerized equipment that would drastically improve productivity. It was a significant investment, but will actually cut cost in the long run. More importantly, the new equipment makes it possible for us to keep production in the US and avoid layoffs,” explained Dal Scott. Monty Crist, Professional’s Choice General Manager commented on the quality of the Professional’s Choice employees, “Their dedication and service to the company is greatly appreciated. We’re a big family here and these individuals have been part of our team for a long time.” “Not only is it easier to monitor quality control when products are produced here, but we have an amazing group of people that work for us. In these trying times, it felt so good to be the bearer of great news. Dal has a wonderful heart and truly cares about his people,” commented Warehouse/Production Manager, Leah Horstman. True to form, at this years holiday celebration, Dal & Nina Scott, Professional’s Choice founders presented all employees with a generous cash bonus. The gracious gesture showed true camaraderie and appreciation for another year of great products, hard work, and industry standard setting. The more comfortable the horse, the better the performance. Professional's Choice is a pioneer in producing products strictly with the well being of the horse in mind. As inventor and manufacturer of the original patented Sports Medicine Boot, the SMB Elite™ and the SMx Air Ride™ Saddle Pad, Professional's Choice continually produces high quality products recognized by top trainers, professionals and everyday horseman all over the world.
