While checking up on other sites selling copper, I come across some pretty interesting comments. I would like to use the Copper Sinks Direct Blog to dispell some of the myths out there.
Like this one: “Our sinks are comparable to other top brand names.”
Of course any reseller of copper sinks or any other products out there are free to make any claims they want, or that they have been told by whom ever they are buying from.
Well, I’m here to tell you the Copperhead Sinks experience first hand.
My husband and I started Copperhead Sinks some 5 years ago. We started by using a middleman to purchase sinks from a factory in Mexico. This factory was supposed to be an exclusive factory in Mexico making sinks for the only big name copper reseller in the U.S. Well, so much for being exclusive, we started buying from the same factory. Everything seemed to be going smoothly at first. We had a website built, purchased a small quantity of copper sinks and a toll free number and off we went. Well, business boomed and we were in over our heads from the beginning. Suddenly, the factory was too busy to get our stuff to us in a timely fashion. Then we’d get products and they wouldn’t be what we were expecting, the quality was starting to suffer and we were left wonder what to do next.
Well, my husband started going to the factory, keeping watch of what was going on. Trying to get a handle on why they couldn’t keep up etc. Our days of purchasing those “comparable brands” was going to be short lived. It wasn’t very long before my husband with some help from some of the best artisans in the business started his own shop in the mountains of Mexico. Suddenly, we weren’t purchasing a comparable brand, wer were becoming a brand, the Copperhead Sinks Brand. Copperhead Sinks, makes sinks for the online retail sales of Copper Sinks Direct. We don’t have a storefront in Mexico, we don’t sell Copperhead Sinks to anyone other than Copper Sinks Direct.
Do other places sell Copper Sinks, sure they do, but you won’t know where they come from and if any special care was given to them before they made it to your door. If you buy a Copperhead Sink, know that they come from a little town in Mexico, made in a shop run by an American, who makes all his sinks for Copperhead.
We also took the next step in our quest for quality and had our sinks tested to the standards of the Universal Plumbing Code (UPC) for quality inspections of our copper sinks and our facility in Mexico. If the copper sinks on other sites want to say they are comparable, then they need to show their IAPMO approval, then and only then will there be something to compare, other than the claim that their sinks are made in Mexico.
Now, years later, my husband remains in Mexico to ensure that our copper sinks artisans maintain the highest level of craftsmanship possible. He is constantly creating new designs and working on more efficient ways of getting the sinks manufactured and shipped to our warehouse in Dallas, Texas. We strive to make sure that our copper sinks are the best in the business.
We run our operation so that custom work is a welcome challenge for our excellent team of coppersmiths and artisans. Custom sizes and designs are not a problem for our copper shop, we can create and ship within a matter of days.
Copperhead Sinks cannot be compared to anyone else. If you own a Copperhead Sinks, then you know you have the best copper sink, direct to you from an American in Mexico.
