Sage Wins Small Company Business Award

By Martin Leung

Sage Manufacturing, the company behind some of world's finest fly rods, was recently dubbed Seattle Business magazine's Manufacturer of the Year, Small Company.

From this press release:
The May issue of Seattle Business features the awards for 2012 and is the culmination of the publication’s Washington Manufacturing Awards. Each year Seattle Business honors companies whose work results in growing or advancing the manufacturing sector in the state. During an awards ceremony on Thursday night, April 26th, six winners were chosen in different categories. Representatives of roughly 270 manufacturing companies located in the state attended the event.


“At Sage we have been actively investing in our people and processes to ensure that we continue to offer our customers cutting edge technology and cutting edge value while doing our part to secure the future of American manufacturing,” notes Production Manager, Scott Tuchel.

“The quality of competition is revealed by the list of the silver award winners in our category: Pro CNC of Bellingham, maker of energy efficient cars and Cascade Designs of Seattle, a 40 year old outdoor gear manufacturer,” comments President and CEO, Travis Campbell. “This is a fantastic achievement and I would like to congratulate everyone involved.”

And I was one of the very first fly fishing school instructors for the SAGE ROD flyfishing school.

They have an outstanding line-up of fly rods that is the standard by which other fly rod companies are measured. However, Sage doesn't appear all that enthusiastic about having the best customer service and "lifetime warranty" department in the industry. I hope they are working diligently to improve this.

dleurguin...not sure any of the rod mfgrers are that excited to be the number one best warrantee co. It costs the co. money, and the cost has to be passed on to the cost of a rod. Many of them are charging a fairly substantial amount to replace a section, and the shipping costs are extensive that they have you pay. I like it. The better the foreign rod makers become at making rods, and they are getting very good at it, the price of a USA made good rod can't be justified.
