Newburyport, MA (PRWEB) June 05, 2014
In a recently launched campaign by New Balance to enforce its message of their support for U.S. manufacturing, Bixby International, along with five other U.S. vendors, were highlighted as vendors benefiting from New Balance's domestic manufacturing efforts.
This campaign aligns nicely with the recent news that the Boston-based brand will supply sneakers to military recruits as soon as next year following a Department of Defense policy change. Hear President Dan Rocconi, in the video below, explain how Bixby assists New Balance in the quest to produce a 100%, all-American shoe.
The company does note that when its domestic value is at least 70%, it will label the shoes "Made in the USA," meaning some materials are still in fact imported.
