In 2010 we joined a start-up movement called American Made Matters.
American Made Matters is an organization made up of over 325 member companies in 45 states and growing. Our members are manufacturers who represent various industries from apparel and toys to steel fabrication and cleaning supplies. Sponsors include American made retailers, patriotic organizations, and service providers who support our cause. We are a resource for consumers looking to find American made goods as well as a resource for our members and sponsors. American Made Matters is happy to make business to business introductions and has facilitated many collaborative efforts. We believe that by working together, American manufacturers, eCommerce websites and retail shops can better convey the message that American made truly matters!
The AMM logo can now be found on thousands of products that comply with our standards which are at least 50% of the cost (labor, materials, and overhead) is incurred in the United States and the final assembly or transformation takes place in the U.S.*
"We have the ability to change our economy and to strengthen our communities one purchase at a time. American consumers have tremendous economic clout and they need to realize the importance of buying American made goods. It only takes few seconds to look at a tag or to ask a sales person if they carry any made in USA brands. Many times you’ll be surprised that there isn’t much of a price difference, and American made goods are often better quality. With every purchase we have the ability to create jobs and better opportunities for our children and grandchildren."
