This is highly dependent on what we are making. We will gladly commit to a specific production rate during the design phase of the product.
We welcome blanket orders, stocking programs, and vendor managed inventory. This is a great way for you to take advantage of cost-effective longer webbing runs without being burdened with excessive inventory. This is part of the contract review process and is tailored to each customer’s needs.
This varies by product, but many of our product pages feature general estimates for typical order minimums and production times. If you’re looking for a very small run or need your webbings or straps very quickly, it is best to contact us directly to see how we can serve you.
Yes. We embrace the concept of a global economy and regularly ship to customers in Europe, Asia, South America, Latin America, Mexico, and Canada.
Canceled orders are subject to manufacturing and material costs incurred up to and including the date of cancellation. It is best to contact us ahead of time to confirm what charges, if any, will be incurred as a result of canceling a particular order.
Returns are accepted on standard webbings and hardware in new condition. Returned webbings and hardware must be deemed reusable before any credit is issued. Original shipping charges and any shipping costs incurred to return the items are the responsibility of the customer.

Because Sturges products are manufactured to customer specifications and are sold with written warranties, no warranties are intended by this website.
Our strength lies in the custom manufacturing of webbing and finished straps. We provide a number of “stock products” and bulk webbing to various industries, but do not have a “full product line.” The majority of orders manufactured here are done on a per-order basis, resulting in individualized attention to each customer’s specific needs. The literature we have available simply provides information about our company, our capabilities and different applications of the products we manufacture.
