San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2013
A study by Booz and Company found that, "Today, U.S. manufacturers provide about 75% of the products that Americans consume. But that number could soar to 95% within a few years if business and government leaders take the right actions. Conversely, if the sector remains neglected, that output could fall by half, meeting less than 40% of U.S. demand."
As we begin a new presidential term, it’s a fitting time to think about how to get to that 95%. Retail giant Walmart recently announced that it would spend an additional $50 billion on American-made products over the next decade. Large companies like 3M and Caterpillar have followed suit by trying to source more in the U.S.
National Pen has been making ad specialty products in the USA since 1966. For many products, every component, from the pen barrel to the tiny spring you find inside the pens, is American-made. The company recently expanded its Made in the USA line with 12 new pens, including the Scripter Pen with the popular jumbo barrel. The American flag symbol displayed on the web site and in the catalog helps customers easily identify USA-made products. Customers can take comfort knowing products were made with safe, high-quality materials and feel good that their hard-earned dollars are staying here in the USA. Other advantages to buying American include factory direct prices and fast delivery.
Dave Thompson, CEO of National Pen says, “We are very proud to be one of the few American pen manufacturers. Our world-class factory in Shelbyville, Tennessee has been a cornerstone of our business for nearly fifty years and we will continue to foster creativity and innovation right here at home. We are also one of the few companies bringing work back to America from China to ensure consistency in quality and product safety.”
National Pen attributes its success as an American-made business to long-time customers and their support. Every purchase provides jobs for American workers and helps fuel the U.S. economy. Click here to shop the full line of Made in the USA products.
