HandTrux LLC USA is developing rapidly into a company that makes good sales every year. Without a big marketing budget it is doing very well. An increase in demand with every year. A company that grows likes this must have a product that is selling because of the originality and the quality. The products are made in New York and not in China. In this way quality can be guarenteed and monitored. Also an dynamic production capability. Transport from the USA to Europe is much faster then from China. In New York they can make a product also against competing prices. MADE IN THE USA. A USP on its own.
