Maryland based wholesaler chooses to sell only American-made goods

 

A Christmas Ornament Co., http://www.achristmasornament.com, a Maryland-based ornament design company, has announced it will sell only made in the USA Christmas ornaments this holiday season.Outsourcing of American manufacturing has had a devastating impact on the US economy, yet mega retailers continue to import billions of dollars of foreign made goods, many of which are poor in quality. A recent Gallup Poll found that 72% of Americans are paying "heightened attention" to the country of origin of the products they buy and 65% are making an effort to specifically avoid products made in China. While it is clear Americans want to buy products made in the USA, they are often left without an alternative. Americans are forced to perpetuate this cycle when they can't find American-made goods. In response to the flood of far-east imports, A Christmas Ornament Co. has distinguished itself by offering only American-made products. The company has partnered with a number of US manufacturers to create their custom Christmas ornament line.

 

The company's CEO, Luke Wilbur, noted, "We believe producing high quality gift products gives greater opportunities for expanding domestically and abroad. Everyone at A Christmas Ornament is a leader in one way or another, no matter what his or her position in the company may be. Our leaders understand that a satisfied customer typically becomes a repeat buyer."

 

A Christmas Ornament strives to make it easy for everyone to purchase American-made Christmas ornaments at a reasonable price. In addition, A Christmas Ornament offers non-automated (American sourced, of course) on-site customer service to answer any questions customers may have. The company focuses mainly on wholesale orders, but individuals may also purchase Christmas ornaments.

 

A Christmas Ornament's catalog includes time-honored Christmas ornaments made of collectible glass, metal, and porcelain. In bold font, the company states, "All of our ornaments are proudly manufactured in the United States."

 

"We are making a concerted effort to bring 'made in USA' products back to the forefront of manufacturing and we think every little bit helps," says Wilbur. "All our Christmas ornaments are sourced from manufacturers, artists, design houses, machinists, materials and inks made in the United States. We are doing our part to keep jobs in America and restore pride in superior American craftsmanship."

Guest American Christmas

Keep 'em flyin' America! And please remind yourself, and everyone you know, to look for the MADE IN USA label on everything you buy. Don't outsource your fellow countrymen!

The outsourcing trend we Americans are facing now is costing us jobs and money and is causing our unemployment rate to go through the roof. The damage that is being done by these companies who have chosen to go this route in order to save a few bucks, will in the end hurt our economy even more and place larger more difficult burdens on the American people as a whole. That is why i support made in America products.
