Practical advice for all your Loading, Hauling & Transport needs

Product Roundup: Made in the USA

Made in USA TagA poll conducted a few years back by the folks at Harris Interactive shows that “Made in the USA” is pretty important for most Americans in their buying decisions, as it influences about 3 in 5 of us. That number begins to vary slightly, however, when you drill it down further by age and region, with it being a factor of greater importance for U.S. adults age 55+. It also tends to play a bigger role for people living in the Midwest as opposed to the east coast and the South, or on the west coast, where it carries the least weight. In general, though, if we can find the product we need AND it is manufactured domestically, most Americans view that as a very big positive.

Since everybody’s feeling all patriotic and full of national pride with Independence Day having just been celebrated, we thought we’d do a Product Roundup of just a few of the U.S.-made products we have available.
