These products will be manufactured in China, under US mil specs, and associated testing standards. All products will also be tested in accordance with POP/UN Standards, as well as to mil spec PPP-B-585.

Ocean freight is less, and Nehalem Pacific is strategically located next to the Port of Qingdao, reducing inland freight costs.
