American Made Matters running July 4th promotion
In honor of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday, American Made Matters is running a promotion as part of its ongoing effort to put goods made in the United States in the spotlight.
What is American Made Matters? We wrote about that group back in 2011, but we’re more than happy to provide a brief synopsis about the organization, why it was formed and what its members hope to achieve. That group came into being on July 4, 2009 by Don Rongione, president and chief executive officer of Bollman Hat Co. in Adamstown, Penn. Rogione said his company, like others that still manufacture goods in the U.S., was feeling the pinch from foreign competition.
The American Made Matters site acts as a portal for people looking to purchase American-made goods. Companies that join the group are encouraged to brand their products with the “American Made Matters” logo so consumers will know they are buying domestic items. Rongione said consumers may want to purchase goods made in the U.S., but locating them can be difficult. American Made Matters, then, makes that process a little easier.
