It was starting to happen long before this latest call.
After years of small American manufacturers (including ourselves) pleading with big executives and buyers at large corporations it’s slowly beginning to take shape in a positive direction for the American small business owner. A dire situation still exists for most, but a hope for the future continues to look brighter.
At Manchester Wood, our present business dealings and those future proposed, shine in optimism. We’re starting to see results that leave us giving thanks.
ABC World News with Diane Sawyer is running a series the last week of this month (February) on a home remodeling using solely American made products, and Manchester Wood has one of those featured products! (shhh! …It’s our Tall Double Jelly Cabinet in Chestnut Finish ; )
This news is not only exciting for our small shop, but it brings up a greater awareness to the American people on helping your fellow man, and not to mention, enjoying (hopefully), a quality made product.
There are lots examples of people slowly spotlighting American made products, even some large corporations are starting to, as well as blogs like Americansworking.com or StillmadeinUSA.com. We try to support with our own twitter account – @americancrafted, which we manage and tweet on fellow domestic producers.
BUT, with all that said, not many major media sources have spotlighted this topic, at all. We hope it continues and spreads all over this beautiful land we call home.
Thank you to our loyal customers, those old and new, ABC for running this program, and all the good people putting up the good fight. To view our Tall Double Jelly Cabinet that was selected by World News with Diane Sawyer, click here.
