Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 11, 2013
Veterans Day 2013 marks the launch of the Made in USA Brand Member Directory. Since its website launch on Labor Day 2009, Made in USA Brand has chosen patriotic dates to mark its milestones. Made in USA Brand's vision is to create a marketplace where buyers and sellers recognize, at a glance, reliable, quality goods made or grown in the United States.
In 2013, the Association of Glass and Pottery Manufacturers (AGPM) was pleased to offer Made in USA Brand a grant to create an online directory of their members. This new directory of current, registered U.S. manufacturers will be available on the MadeInUSAbrand.com website. Future plans for the website include the ability for members to locate and coordinate American-made products for their business.
Robert Gonze, Project Chairman of AGPM, approached the president of Made in USA Brand, Marcie Gabor, to learn how AGPM could help Made in USA Brand accomplish its important mission: To connect manufacturers and consumers to American-made products whenever and wherever possible.
"The AGPM is a non-profit association of glass and pottery manufacturers located in the U.S.” said Gonze. “Our fund is always looking for great projects to help American manufacturers, not just in our respective industry, but any American manufacturing industry. And this project fit our mission perfectly."
Past AGPM projects include internships, scholarships, high school ceramic and glass pre-packaged experiments, and industry awareness videos.
