- Buy Local
When Roarockit began, we made a conscious effort to source as much of our material, tools and manufacturing from local merchants and mills. We’ve been successful in finding suppliers near us for the best quality and reasonably priced parts possible.
This effort is in part to support local businesses, but also to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible. Our commitment to being environmentally responsible drives us to deal with local companies.
The Maple and Birch that Roarockit supplies is locally harvested, rotary cut and steam dried.
Our vacuum bags and foam molds are locally made. Sealing tapes, breather netting, sandpaper and glue rollers are also made close to home. Even our packaging is locally printed and manufactured.
The 1/16” thick bamboo we supply comes from China, and so far, this is the place where the best material comes from. If bamboo farms in North America eventually grow and process material suitable for building skateboards, we will be looking to deal with them too.
We are proud to maintain great relationships with so many local businesses. We support them and we also appreciate your efforts to support us as a local business too! Buy Local!
