  • (1888PressRelease) August 07, 2009 - Insights is producing new segments on products that are exclusively Made in America.

    The Senior Producer for the programs said, “The series will focus on the importance of keeping manufacturing here in the United States, and the advantages of buying "made in America" products.” Many companies take pride in fact that they are working to keep America strong and prosperous by keeping manufacturing here in the U.S.

    Companies have recently been given the choice of increasing their borders with their manufacturing capabilities or remaining here in America. They take pride in their work as an American. Even the host of “Made in America”, John Ratzenberger, says “If you want to know America, you've got to meet the folks who work in factories and workshops. People who make real things and take pride in what they do…I poked around every corner of this country -- big cities, small towns, and whatever was in between -- looking for the soul of America. And you know what? I found it everywhere."

    By refusing to outsource internationally, American companies have increased their company profit, which was unexpected. As a result, Americans have decided to build bigger plants in the US because they sensed the importance of keeping American companies in America. There are far too many companies that are created and launched for less money and cheaper quality – such companies claim others are being ‘Penny wise and pound foolish’ as the age old adage goes. This is all for the sake of making the owner more income. But there are economic advantages, they say, of keeping products in America, made by Americans. The Insights series will explore the advantages of producing and buying American Made products.
