There was a time when that was THE catch phrase because just about everything was made here. But over the past fifty years that has changed. In recent times some of these companies were bought and taken over by China, Hong Kong, Tiawan, Germany, Switzerland, the UK and more. Some companies still maintain offices here but outsource the making of their product to other countriesBut there are still plenty who have never left the country or outsourced their production to other countries. Now, at a time with what is going on in Ukraine with Russia and the big problems we have here, made in the USA means more than ever.Here are some companies that still continue to produce only in America.
