According to the Federal Trade Commission, “Made in USA” means that “all or virtually all” the product has been made in America. That is, all significant parts, processing and labor that go into the product must be of U.S. origin.
What does Made in America mean to you? To us, as a small business in Colorado, it means more then we can put into words. It is how we survive.
Terry Taggart purchased Tag Team Manufacturing from Parker, Colorado, the producer of the Delta-13 accessories, in 2000 after leaving the commercial banking world. Tag Team Manufacturing has been producing aerospace parts, medical equipment parts and computer storage components for OEM's (Original Equipment Manufacturer's) since 1987. Delta-13 was born out of Tag Team in March of 2007 to bring high quality billiard accessories to improve a player’s quality of play. In 2010, Tag Team Design was formed to bring custom web designs to small and medium sized businesses, while also helping design and market its sister companies.
