Homer Laughlin China Flaunts Made in USA Status
Homer Laughlin China Co (HLC) Inc. represented West Virginia in the “Made in America Product Showcase” as part of “Made in America Week” at the White House last month.
Only one company from each of the 50 states was selected to be highlighted in the celebration.
Since its founding in 1871, HLC has made its durable, lead-free dinnerware in America. In gourmet retail, HLC is best known for its colorful Fiesta collectible dinnerware.
Made in America Week honored the skilled tradespeople whose work has set the standard for quality worldwide.
“Homer Laughlin is so proud to manufacture in the U.S. and to supply jobs to over 800 workers in our community. To have been recognized for our commitment to being “Made in America” was truly remarkable,” said Katie Bricker, director of foodservice marketing, HLC Inc, Newell, W.Va. “HLC has always been interested in American jobs and American manufacturing—we’ve been doing it for 150 years. That’s the kind of commitment we hope to see among all American enterprises.”
