The award highlights Alliance for exhibiting excellence in USA manufacturing best practices and standards. Alliance was also evaluated on their contribution to job creation in the United States and accurate labeling. In the spirit of self-reliance, Alliance decided early last year to promote their commitment to manufacturing in the USA. It embarked on an effort to create manufacturing jobs in the U.S. through a “We Can Make It in America” website challenge that encourages the expansion of American manufacturing and supports job creation.
“Alliance Rubber was selected for its significant advance in products including design, implementation, product performance and market acceptance,” said Julie Reiser, Co-Founder of Made in USA Certified.
“Manufacturing is at the heart and soul of America and the talented people in our factories and workshops are the key to driving a strong economy,” said Bonnie Swayze, president of Alliance Rubber Company. “Any goods that are manufactured within the United States support four to five other jobs in the economy. Together we can create opportunity, inspire confidence and help get Americans working.”
