Made in America, Our 242nd Birthday!
Our Country has been celebrating its independence for 242 years. Manufacturing in the United States has come a long way since the start of the Industrial Revolution. The manufacturing industry was once seen as a dirty, crowded, assembly line type work. Although some may still see the industry in this light, manufacturing is truly one of the most advanced industries in the economy.
