May 17, 2008, HOUSTON, TX - Farouk Systems, Inc. is a billion dollar hair care company located in Houston, TX and it plans on starting a trend by “Going USA!” Farouk Systems will stop all manufacturing in South Korea and China so it can begin manufacturing from Houston where the company currently has 3 warehouses.
"People want 'Made in the U.S.A.' " on the products they buy, Shami said.”
With shipping costs doubling in the past year, counterfeit items coming from China along with maintaining its high-quality product reputation; Farouk decided the best solution was to manufacture from home which will be a big step for the US economy which carries significant cost advantages. Robert "Bill" Gilmer with the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas quotes in the Houston Chronicle stating that he had heard of some companies returning to Mexico after relocating to China but not to the United States.
