HAYWARD, Calif.–CaliBowl/Simple Wave LLC’s product line is now manufactured in Union City, Calif. Previously, its entire product line was made in China.
“It’s an optimum time for us to transition back to the U.S.,” Jeff Bollengier, Simple Wave LLC president and co-founder, told HFN. “We found a local U.S. manufacturer that was running at a lower capacity,” [so] we pulled all [of our] manufacturing equipment out of China.”
Simple Wave LLC’s co-founder Rich Stump added in a release, “Our business is growing very quickly and by having the ability to react quickly and provide just-in-time manufacturing will provide the fuel to our growth. Knowing that we are contributing to the U.S. economy re-shoring effort is a great feeling and we are confident that this will in turn provide a better quality product to our customers.”
The CaliBowl is a bowl with an inward-curving lip, to prevent food from spilling while eating.
