A recent article from Americanmanufacturing.org, applauds Walmart for their recent announcement that the retailing giant plans to source an additional $50 billion in US made products over the next ten years. Scott Paul, AAM’s President, responded by saying:
“If Walmart’s ‘Made in America’ announcement is real, it’s a game changer. No company drives retailing trends like Walmart. I salute Walmart for stating this commitment and hope other retailers follow suit in sourcing more high-quality products that are made in America.
Obviously there has been a lot of talk recently about consumers in the US demanding more locally made and produced products after seeing many manufacturing jobs leave to low cost sourcing areas like China over the past 10 years.
