What are the determining factors when deciding what materials and supplies you are going to use for your jobs? Price? Country of origin? Reputation of manufacturer?

First and Foremost, Quality of product and reputation of manufacturer. The last thing we want is our craftsmanship to be compromised by shoddy materials

Quality of Product and manufacturer reputation is important. But also, material certifications, lead times, and responsiveness. Some larger companies may have a great product with a great company reputation, but not have the customer service or lead times necessary, quite possibly due to growing too large and not expanding staff requirements as needed.

Certain projects requires certain timeframes, so this has deemed pretty important to our company.
