#WeAreAmericanMade Contest Recap: Part 1

As many of you know, in June we ended our first ever promotional contest. Having been in business for over 20 years we know there is an endless amount of incredible people and businesses out there who are just like us, doing what they love to do, which is making things! In addition, we also know that many of those people and businesses also believe what we believe, which is keeping what they make, made in America.

Despite the debate that whether remaining “American Made” really matters anymore in a global economy, there is one thing that is for certain when it comes to being made in America. American made products continue to be the highest quality products in the world. Whether big or small, cutting edge or original, we all put our best in the work we do with every piece, part, and product made and service delivered.

As a result, we wanted to take this 2-part blog series to briefly recognize those, who in effort to grow their business, participated in our first contest despite winning the grand prize.
