Manufacturing in New England was abundant. But, since 1998 the company has seen more and more American companies take their products to offshore manufacturers, or, they simply went away. Making the search for American made, specifically New England product extremely difficult.
Now, after 15 years, and close to 1000 Made in America products, Best of New England is gearing up for the biggest Made in America trend to be seen.
According to a recent article in the Star Tribune.
Buy American is back. On the heels of the Great Recession and the loss of millions of manufacturing jobs, a growing number of customers are demanding products that support the U.S. economy. The movement is manifesting itself in a number of ways: Buy American commercials have returned to the airwaves, stores are carrying more U.S.-made goods and several companies are moving their operations back to the United States.
Steven Capozzola, spokesman for the Washington, D.C.-based Alliance for American Manufacturing.
"People now get that there is a direct connection between buying American ... and supporting the U.S. economy."
Best of New England is proud to have been purveyors of American Made and will continue to be diligent.
Here's to the future of America.
