HOT SPRINGS, AR., April 4, 2006, Alliance Rubber Company, a leading global supplier of rubber bands, office and packaging supplies, was featured "John Ratzenberger's Made In America" on The Travel Channel.
“If you want to know America, you've got to meet the folks who work in factories and workshops. People who make real things and take pride in what they do. And then, you have to go in there with them to see how it's done. So, that's what I did. I poked around every corner… More of this country -- big cities, small towns, and whatever was in between -- looking for the soul of America,” said John Ratzenberger. So begins every episode of The Travel Channel original series, Made in America, hosted by everybody's favorite mailman from Cheers.
