“These days, “Made in America” isn’t as clear-cut as it used to be. Most Americans are aware that products branded with American labels may be made in overseas factories or assembled here with parts made overseas. Three-fourths of consumers say being manufactured in the U.S. is crucial for them to consider it ‘made in America.’ Half say being made by an American company or having parts manufactured in the U.S. is what matters. Only one-fourth cared whether a product was designed by an American.”
At Manchester Wood we adhere to the concerns of all the percentages listed above, large or small that consider the design, manufacturing, assembly, and shipping, which in totality at Manchester Wood is done locally in the U.S.A. at our mill in the foothills of the Adirondacks in the “Upstate” New York countryside, resting along the Vermont border. We stand by our brand namesake, “American Made Furniture” through all our thorough practices with the company founder’s vision always in mind: create jobs in the US.
We all remember fondly when we started out as a solid wood furniture manufacturer under the name Manchester Wood that Cliff’s mission was never profit based but job based. “The more jobs we can make, the better,” he’d say. Today we follow that same principle the best we can while still competing with corporate agendas under different ideals.
Made in USA furniture is our pride and creed; it flows through each part of the process and each material used here. Our product proves that, and you’ll find that when it arrives at your door. We’re pleased to find in this recent Small Business Trends report that regardless of politics, and the divisions among us, united we stand under the principle of ‘Made in USA’ products with “Perhaps surprisingly, three-fourths of both Republicans and Democrats [saying] buying American is important.”
Check out our $64 Gifts for U.S. Jobs Collection which aims to boost job creation based on a study by ABC World News with Diane Sawyer that showed if each person spent $64 dollars on Made in America items we would create 200,000 new American jobs.
