Think everything is made overseas? Think again.
These companies pride themselves on creating quality American-made products for the long haul. From CLP Systems to the Hennessy Venom GT, these American made products are sure to surprise. Take a look at the list below and let us know which one caught you by surprise.
These American past-time staples haven’t changed much in the past 80 years. Their durable and easy to clean design makes them number one best sellers. Their home in Palatine, Illinois is where they produce their most recognizable charcoal models.
As one of the oldest luxury trailers in existence, the Airstream trailer is an icon for traditional American road tripping. Their plant in Ohio still employs almost 500 employees today.
Stetson Hats’ rich history make it an American classic. Founded at the end of the Civil War, the company is now the only one to produce cowboy hats in the United States. With millions produced each year, it doesn’t look like these iconic hats are going anywhere.
4. Gillette Blades
Want a tip? The best Gillette blades are made in America, right in the same city where the company was originally founded in 1905. As the powerhouse for men’s razors and grooming, there is no doubt that these razors are keeping America clean (shaven, that is).
5. Benjamin Moore Paint
Founded in 1883 by an Irish immigrant, Benjamin Moore Paint is now one of the most well-known paint brands of the day. Offering more than 3,500 color choices, you are sure to find the right match.
6. Hennessy Venom GT
Everything is bigger in Texas – or faster that is. Hennessy Performance succeeded in building the fastest sports car in the world with speeds in excess of 270 mph. With less than 30 cars in existence, each one is manufactured in the Houston area.
7. Vitamix Blenders
Founded in 1921, Vitamix Blenders are constantly rated the best blender in the market. Whether you are making soup or a smoothie, this Ohio-based company has got you covered.
8. Igloo Coolers
Whether you are packing your lunch or planning for a weekend camping trip, you probably have an Igloo Cooler in tow. A classic American staple, these coolers are manufactured in a facility outside of Houston.
9. CLP Systems Threaded Rod Tie Down System
Operating since 2002 in Pelham, Alabama, CLP Systems is the number one threaded rod tie-down systems in America – only using 100% domestic in-house steel rod and anchor bolts for their projects. Looks like they will be creating jobs and securing American infrastructure for the long haul.
10. New Balance Shoes
With a $17.3 million contract just signed with the U.S. Military, there is no doubt that New Balance Shoes is an American company. As the largest brand shoe manufacturer in the U.S., the company makes more than 4 million shoes a year.
