OIA Seeks Companies that Manufacture in the U.S.

Outdoor Industry Association® (OIA) needs your help in identifying companies that manufacture in the United States or are considering moving some production back to this country. The White House has asked for our help in order to highlight these companies as part of the president’s Blueprint for an America Built to Last, President Obama’s vision for bolstering the U.S. economy through American manufacturing, American energy, skills for American workers and a renewal of American values.

This White House project builds on Obama’s January 2012 Insourcing American Jobs Forum, which OIA and several outdoor industry companies attended.

Recognizing the importance of this issue, OIA also presented the Can You Make it in America panel at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City in January.

Please help us compile a list of outdoor industry companies that manufacture in the United States. If your company manufactures products here, is bringing some level of production back to this country, or is contemplating the possibility of insourcing, please contact OIA Policy Analyst Donalee Jones at djones@outdoorindustry.org or 303.327.3532.
