WHY MADE IN USA MATTERS
Customers will ask for USA-Made products because they know American manufacturing is a big deal – it supports over 17 million jobs across the country and contributes over 12% to U.S. GDP. Buying products with the Made in USA label keeps those jobs going, and keeps our economy thriving. And, when you buy a product made in the USA, you can be sure you’re getting American quality and not a cheap, foreign knock-off.
