Previously, Grilla Grills operated as a metal processing company in Michigan, during which time it worked in the construction and automotive industries.
Naturally, then, Grilla Grills has always used the finest and most robust materials for all its products.
The short answer is that Grilla Grills are made in China. However, the business is still owned by an American family, and has been around for over four decades now.
Back in the day, the business stuck to stamping, pressing, welding, and cutting steel.
Gradually, though, it started looking for ways to diversify –and after numerous sit-downs at the drawing table, Grilla Grills came into existence.
Grilla Grills, for the first three years, completely manufactured its pellet grills in the USA.
The distributors and dealers were excited at the idea that Americans would love to purchase products that were fully made in their own country.
However, once customers learned about the high prices, they decided to go for one of the cheaper, imported grill options.
The sellers felt that the product was still excellent, but something needed to be done about the price.
After that three-year mark, Grilla Grills had two options: they could either kill the grills off, or find a way to lower the manufacturing expenses.
At this point, a team of Grilla Grills representatives traveled overseas to see if there was a manufacturer who could help the business reduce its manufacturing costs.
The business eventually signed a deal with a Chinese grill manufacturer.
This, of course, was not an easy decision, but needed to be done for the survival of the product.
Shifting the product overseas, and eliminating the dealers or ‘middlemen’ from the process allowed Grilla Grills to save a great deal of money.
This money was then funneled towards further enhancing the quality of the grills.
The business improved the construction process, and turned it dual-wall to create a more effective thermal jacket.
Certain aspects of the grill were strengthened, which improved the grills’ longevity and durability.
Today, the entire line of Grilla Grill products contains more stainless steel than it has done ever before.
These days, the extra hardware and other accessories for the grills are manufactured in Holland, Michigan.
The business is always coming up with new products that are usable with its grills.
These products are being shaped using laser cutters, and are being tested by avid grillers across the country.
Even though the core manufacturing might have moved overseas, Grilla Grills has never compromised on quality – the company opens up and assesses every grill that makes its way over from China.
The reduction in price and increase in quality has led to a more than tenfold increase in Grilla Grills’ sales.
The company has sold more grills in the last three months than it did during its first three years in operation.
This, of course, also means that the customers are wholeheartedly approving of the new grills.
