This thread goes hand in hand with another thread I saw titled "By Only American Made Products." Well, let this thread be a thread listing the names of companies who make American made products. It's going to be tough to find 100% American made products but if its "mostly" American then that's good enough. You don't have to post a link of course but please do if you can. Feel free to post any type of business service too, even if it's not a "product".

For example, I'll start with Ford and Microsoft. If you buy a Nissan or Playstation then shame on you. To make this easier on people to see all the products, once I can conclude that a product or service is in fact American I will edit this original post and create a single list. I know this probably won't work out but let's see what happens.

1. Ford
2. Microsoft

I found this site after I made this thread. Pretty much wraps it up I guess:

Actually lots of Fords are made out of the US as are many of their parts. And microsoft has research facilities all over the world and many of its products are made overseas. So neither are truly 100% American.

I finally found shoes made in the U.S. and they don't fit my feet! Back to the Chinese-made ones at Walmart.

I tried on name brand and my feet didn't like them. You have to get the shoes that fit. I do have Ariat paddock boots that fit, but my athletic shoes are Walmart. I like to buy American, but I can't in this case.

Where are your name-brand shoes made?

Most mattresses, and that includes the foundation (or boxspring) are made in the US. Here in the east coast some of the companies are:

SEALY (Sealy Posturepedic) - Paterson, NJ

SIMMONS (Simmons BeautyRest) - Hazelton, PA

IBC (International Bedding Corp.) (makes beds under many names including Lady Americana and Airsprung) - Barnesville, PA

KINGSDOWN - Mebane, NC

TEMPURPEDIC - Colonial Heights, VA

As far as casual shoes go, I've only worn Vasque for about the last seven years. The shoes are made in China, but at least it's an American company (Minnesota), and in those seven years, I've only bought two pair of them - and the older pair is still holding up. They're what I usually wear every day, actually. I've never had a pair of Nikes or New Balance that held up that well.
