100+ Brands That Are Made in the USA
L

What do a sloth stuffed animal, an HDTV, and an upholstered recliner have in common? Most likely, they were all made in China, or another country where cheap labor is plentiful. But alongside the many foreign-made items stocked on the shelves of your local department store, you might also see a product proudly labeled “Made in the USA.” And most Americans would prefer to purchase a product that was produced in the United States, according to Consumer Reports.

There is a common misconception that American manufacturing has been on the decline. According to the St. Louis Fed, real manufacturing output has increased over the last two decades. But manufacturing employment has seen a decline, in part because innovations in technology have made workers more productive. But there’s good news on the employment front as well, since there’s been an uptick in new manufacturing jobs since 2010. Nonprofit organization The Reshoring Initiative reports that many companies have moved production back to the states in recent years, creating more manufacturing jobs for Americans.

How do you find out a product’s country of origin?

Many Americans want to support the trend by buying products that were made in the USA. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, imported goods are required to be labeled with the country where the item was manufactured or produced. So you’ll likely find a label on the tag or outer packaging for an item that indicates where it was made. If you want to focus on buying American-made products, consult our list of brands made in the USA.

What does it mean if a product is made in the USA?

According to the Federal Trade Commission, in order for a brand to label or imply that a product was “made in the USA,” all of the significant parts and processing must occur in the United States. Minor components can be foreign-made, but must make up an insignificant part of the total manufacturing costs. A product can also be labeled “assembled in the USA” if the components were made in other countries but substantial transformation occurred in the states. It’s often cheaper to import the components of a product and assemble them locally. This label doesn’t apply to “screwdriver” assembly, which refers to a scenario where the parts are made elsewhere and undergo simple assembly in the United States.
