US Cargo Control has added more than 100 additional items to its selection of 3- and 4-inch ratchet and winch tie down straps. The new products are part of an ongoing category expansion that now includes BlackLine premium tie down straps, winch straps, and 2-inch ratchet straps.

The product line expansion is part of a larger initiative kicked off in 2013 with the addition of a sewing and assembly manufacturing department. The company now makes its own tie down straps rather than sourcing them from China. Along with improved quality control and faster order turn-around, custom straps can be easily created on-demand for customers.

“Creating our tiedown straps right here in-house has had such a positive impact,” says Tim Sanders, US Cargo Control’s senior vice president of operations. “Knowing we can not only guarantee a quality product, but also offer customers just what they need has allowed us to confidently tap into new markets.”

Sanders say the company plans to continue adding more tiedown straps to its catalog through the second half of 2014.

“We spend a lot of time researching the current marketplace, customer needs, industry trends, etc. before we introduce new products to ensure we’re not just adding to our inventory," Saunders says.

Sanders says an example is the company’s 30-inch-wide ratchet straps, which are manufactured with a polyester webbing that has a break strength of 20,000 pounds -- the highest available on the market, according to the company.
