The following is an excerpt from ABC World News, "Made in America" Series:

"We want to create and sell products all over the world that are stamped with three simple words: 'Made in America.' That's our goal."

Those were the words of President Obama in December and they now compose the title of a special "World News" series "Made in America," which focuses on U.S. manufacturing, jobs and what they mean for the nation's economy.

More than 11 million Americans get their paychecks from working in factories, 
and according to Moody's, if every American spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.-made goods every year, it would create nearly 10,000 new jobs.

The "Made in America" series kicked off last month with the Usry family of Dallas -- Jon, Anna, Landon, Ellis and Amber.

"World News" asked them to take part in an experiment. They were asked to 
empty their living room, kitchen and master bedroom of all imported products and replace them with goods made in the United States. They were left with the kitchen sink and a lone vase filled with hydrangeas.

Companies from all over the United States lent items for our Made in America showcase, including Viking Range Corp., which provided an oven and stove, and Harden furniture in upstate New York.

Made in America: Remodeling the Home Watch Video The ABC "World News" interactive map filled up with submissions from companies that make their goods in the United States and with American-sourced materials. We learned during calls to various business owners, though, that it's almost impossible to create textiles from start to finish with 100 percent U.S.-made materials. This week, "World News" kicks off its "All-Star series" of "Made in America," so please keep watching and check out our list of websites devoted to U.S. companies.


Just this month (July, 2011), Mr Chain got its own mention on the ABC World News site. The site provides an interactive US map showing American manufacturers, by state. We are proud to be included in this list, along with an impressive list of American manufacturers.
