Nevada Manufacturing: Made in America Week
August 11, 2017 | NVIE
Nevada manufacturing is stronger than ever. Last month, President Trump proclaimed July 17th, 2017, as Made in America Day and July 16th through July 22 as Made in America Week. As part of this celebration, on July 17th The White House invited manufactures from all 50 states to feature their American made products. NVIE client, Kimmie Candy, was amongst these featured manufacturers and represented the state of Nevada.
Kimmie Candy Represents Nevada
As a local Nevada manufacturing company, Kimmie Candy commits itself to creating jobs and opportunities in Nevada and the USA. Kimmie Candy’s founder, Joe Dutra makes this commitment clearer on his company’s website, stating that he “remains determined to continue creating jobs and opportunity in the USA so that like him, others can also know The American Dream.”
Manufacturers Directly Impact the Economy
What is important about Kimmie Candy and Made in America Week is the acknowledgement and celebration of the manufacturers and products produced here in our own country. We know that manufacturers and their products have a significant impact on our economy. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the Bureau of Labor and Statistics for 2015 “manufacturers contributed $2.18 trillion to the U.S. economy in 2016” and that “for every $1.00 spent in manufacturing, another $1.81 is added to the economy.” These numbers are staggering; they reaffirm the need to remain cognizant of Nevada manufacturing and the real-life impact it has on not just our local economy, but our national economy as well.
