  1. Thank you for highlighting OHIO, the most beautiful of the fifty. A Korean War Veteran, I have been all over our nation but would never leave Ohio where I have lived for 91 f my 93 years.
    Ohio’s leadership in almost every manufacturing area is renown but SADLY most of Ohio’s manufacturers have un-patriotically moved their production to China and elsewhere.
    We are hoping that Ohioans will realize their blunder and bring their businesses back home where it belongs.

  2. Does your company make OR know where I can purchase an AMERICAN MADE and assembled in USA -countertop residential ice cube maker –? TIRED of making my hand AND so sick of buying CHINA made products -poor quality ty

      Hi Lisa,
      Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find residential ice makers made in the USA. There are a few commercial options manufactured in the USA but they’re in the 4-7 thousand dollar range and probably not at all what you are looking for. If I become aware of anything, I’ll certainly update and please let us know if you find one 🙂
