  • i make this here in the U.S.A.

    Since so many things here are made over seas I wanted to know what is still made here in the ole us of a, this should be of things you either know frist hand or know someone who make this.


    I make plastic bags and sheething here in morristown tennesse, we also make those paper foor mats. And plastic seat covers that auto repair shops use to protect your car.

    The company name is petosky plastics, there is the home factory in petosky mi, another plant in hartford id, and the plant I work at here in morristown tn.

    Now you know atleast one thing that is made here in the US.

    A few weeks ago Menards, a regional BORG type store, had a Made In USA sale. Their weekly flier, maybe 12-16 pages, featured only items that they sell that are made in this country. The products featured that week pretty much covered all of the different departments within the store from electrical, to wood. It was a pleasant surprise to see that they carry a very large inventory of different types of Made In USA products. Of course they also have their fare share of Made Elsewhere products but who doesn't?

          Thanks for posting Chevy.

          Someone here should start a poll thread to go along with this.
          Would you rather spend more $ for the exact same product made in USA?

          Would you spend even more $ for the same product but made with better quality here in the USA?

          Are you content with the way things are now: cheap goods at a cheap price made outside of the USA?

          Something along the lines of that.
          I think we'll find the majority would rather buy USA even if it cost more and the quality is the same.

          Of course we want better quality but if I were looking at 2 of the exact same product one made in china for $9.99 and the other made in USA for $13.99, I would go for the USA product.

          And if were something I would use often or needed to rely on, ie:tools, I would be willing to spend even more for something made with quality in mind not price.

            Gene, I don't want to rant again so I'll just say if folks considered the added cost of buying that cheaper product such as unemployment and so on, it's really not cheaper! Same goes for the day laborers(slave laborers), plenty of added expense at the back end.

                I would pay more for sure, Because HANDMADE USA GOODS last longer then import crap.

                  Buckets are still made in the US. The homer buckets from home depot are made in Leominster, MA down the street from me. Same with the buckets for drywall mud, National Gypsum, US gypsum and Georgia Pacific, all of which make their drywall here too.

                  Anderson Windows subcontracts their manufacturing to businesses based off region. In the case of New England the windows are made by an American company Brockway Smith.

                    I worked for Dexter shoe for a short time.
                    Part of my job in the shipping dept was to take shoes out of cases with Chines writing all over them and put them in cases that said "made in the USA".

                      I can't say I make these, but I do have a part in it. I guess I can say I raise these.

                      Wheat,

                      Chickens

                      Cattle
                      and many end up as meat.
