Made in the U.S.A. Should be the #1 Path for Businesses

The fact that overseas manufacturers could save the entrepreneur who’s speaking a great deal of money and lower their costs. Is that particular fact true? Well…unfortunately it is. However, as business has been changing, and America has been attempting to get back on the horse, many big names have proven that you can succeed and manufacture your product line in America, all at the same time. They are not about to go out of business anytime soon, and they take a whole heck of a lot of pride in the fact that their products are “Made in the U.S.A.” Don’t believe?

Grado is a name that all audiophile’s relate to in a big way. You might too, although you just needed the product, perhaps, and had no idea what an actual audiophile was. Grado Labs creates headphones that are used by an army of professionals in the music industry. For 60+ years now, they have making this high-class product line in good, old…Brooklyn, New York.

Along the same lines, another big name in the technology world makes its home and produces its amazing products in…New Jersey. The high-performance computers that are used in gaming and media production comes from the minds, hearts and manufacturing facilities of MAINGEAR.

Strangely enough, also in the computer world, is a product by the one and only Apple that is only produced in the United States. Now, yes, Apple does outsource a large percent of its manufacturing to China, but when it comes to the Mac Pro desktop console, Apple keeps that creation close to home – with production only coming from their facility in…Texas.

 

When we go to the world of transportation, two names sit atop the “Made in the U.S.A.” list and should get a big round of applause for keeping their products in American hands. URB-E is the name behind the only foldable electric scooter produced in the States. A very popular creation, these scooters allow you to travel up to fifteen miles per hour, and then fold up so that you can carry them on subways or in elevators or any other cramped space you can think of. And all this ingenuity is found each and every day in…California.

 

Also in California, in the town of Fremont, is a factory that is all about electric-car production – the Tesla. Tesla cars are becoming an empire, just the way General Motors did long ago. If all other manufacturers of cars set up in the U.S., just think of how many American jobs could be had.

This next one is definitely not a tough one. Everybody in the world knows the name Zippo, especially American soldiers which is the customer base that made Zippo a household name in the first place. What many may not know, however, is that since 1932 these iconic lighters have been produced out of their headquarters located in…Pennsylvania. Yet another big name in that state has its own “must-see” production company, that’s a lot like a giant carnival, in a city named after their actual brand: Hershey U.S.A.

 

One more name that is well-known in American households is MAGLITE. With this company you are talking about flashlights, lamps, and all different types of lighting products that are the “one and only choice” for people out there. Whether it be businesses, estates, empires, or individuals, MAGLITE has made sure to provide the best products to light up the world since 1979. And they do this all out of an 11-building facility based in Ontario…California.

 

There are many, many others out there who have brought their products back to the good, old U.S.A. in order to provide jobs and increase the wealth for this country. So when it comes to finding the “best manufacturer for your product” just make sure you consider America first. After all, it’s been good to some pretty popular names out there that have lasted a long time, and will continue to for decades to come.
