The reason I got in contact with The Pure Source was because of lack of communication with my manufacturer overseas and wanting my product to be made in the USA. When I called and spoke to a sales rep , they made the whole process very smooth from the minimum order quantities to the explanation of the products they offer, they really helped bring my vision to life.
The Pure Source has been instrumental for my business. They have assigned an account rep who is hands-on and seems to really care. I personally made an inventory mishap and they picked up on it and resolved the issue ASAP. With all the ups and downs I have experienced it is nice that I can rely on a consistent manufacturer. Will absolutely continue to use and highly recommend.
