American Made Matters

Doing our part for the National Economy

During times of uncertainty in the global market, it is becoming increasingly important for the American people to invest in and buy American-Made products. Buying American-Made products surpasses simple patriotism, but further helps to contribute to a brighter and more stable future for the entire country through the support of our local businesses.

In fact, supporting local businesses does more than you might think. Supporting local businesses reinforces the strength of local communities. This strengthens our Nation from the inside out. It provides the best solution for building our National economy by building the most solid foundation imaginable: American citizens once again buying American-Made products.

How exactly does buying American help, though? What are some of the reasons why I should buy American-Made products? These are some common questions among those who are looking to do their part, and in this article, we have listed 10 reasons why you should buy American-Made products.

1.Provides Jobs for Future Generations

Our future generations matter. Jobs for our children and grandchildren are important so that they can build a life for themselves and provide for their families.

Manufacturing in the USA means guaranteed jobs for us. This happens because the more money that is invested in buying American-Made products, the more money will get put back into manufacturing American-Made goods. As this happens, the more the manufacturing sector will grow. By growing the manufacturing sector, more jobs are created that in turn, will push more money back into the economy. This is a cycle that we can get behind. Creating demand for American-made products means that more people will need to create those American-made products.

2.Promotes American Independence

We as Americans have pride in our nation and in our independence. Relying on another country’s exports is counter-intuitive to our sense of being and to our national pride. Our country, which was once a powerhouse on the global market, is now placing vital importance on our trade agreements with other nations, hoping to receive their goods at a low rate. We need to end our reliance on the exports of other countries and take back our independence by buying products made at home – by buying American-made products.

3.Better for the Environment

Current technologies allow manufacturing processes in the US to lean toward. If we invest in American-made products, we can be sure that we are doing our part to contribute to a cleaner environment for our generation, not to mention the generations to come.

4.Our Government Cannot Control Foreign Labor Standards

When products are made in the US, federal and local governments can control and ensure that minimum wages are paid and proper laws are upheld in accordance with United States Labor Laws.

Importing goods from abroad means that we do not have that level of control and transparency. Sweatshops are rampant in third-world countries where many products are manufactured. Buying foreign products, in many cases, supports these violations against workers abroad. Ensure you are helping your fellow Americans by looking for the American Made Matters or made in USA label.

5.Boosts American Investment Opportunities

American manufacturing means investment and finance for the American economy. The more that is pushed into national manufacturing, the more the nation’s economy will reap the benefits. With growth in manufacturing comes a surge in investment opportunities.

6.Guaranteed Quality of Goods

The term “Made in the USA” speaks of quality, excellent craftsmanship and a superior product. Continuing to use foreign imports gives no guarantee of quality. While shipments and products can be monitored, there is no true guarantee of the imported goods quality and longevity.

While price tags will often be higher for made in USA products, the is actually often lower as the made in USA quality will last far longer than a foreign made alternate.

7.Guaranteed Safer and Fair Working Conditions

Government acts like in the manufacturing industry. There are controls and regulations in place to minimize accidents, while granting rights to employees. Foreign countries may not have the same level of health and safety and imports may be contributing to unsafe conditions for thousands of workers.

8.Helps to Reduce the Deficit

Whether we like it or not, the USA has a trade deficit that needs to be addressed and eliminated. Investing in American-Made products will boost the American economy which, in turn, will reduce the deficit.

9.Avoid Foreign Political Debates

Importing goods into the country can produce a whole host of barriers and obstacles, particularly with nations whose diplomatic relationships may be tense. Manufacturing in the USA means these potential obstacles can simply be removed.

10.Outsourced Manufacturing Plants Rarely Return to the US

One less considered factor is that once a product has been outsourced to a foreign country, in too many cases it will never again be manufactured in the US. That avenue of potential business has vanished. This must be avoided at all costs in order to strengthen our economic standing domestically, while eliminating our reliance on foreign goods.

April 2018



April 1, 2018 – April Fools Day / Easter

April Fools’ Day has been observed for centuries although its origins remain unclear.  It has been suggested that in ancient Roman and Hindu cultures, the day originally marked ‘New Year’s Day’.  Although in 1582, Pope Gregory XIII issued the Gregorian calendar which moved New Year’s Day from April 1st to January 1st.  It is believed that those who continued to celebrate New Year’s Day on April 1st were referred to as fools, leading to the concept of April 1st representing All Fools’ Day.  It has also been suggested that April Fools’ Day is related to the vernal equinox, the beginning of spring, when Mother Nature plays sudden weather tricks on people.

Easter commemorates Jesus’ resurrection three days after his crucifixion and death. Following his death, he was removed from the cross and hastily buried in a tomb.

April 10, 2018 – National Siblings Day

Siblings Day is a holiday recognized annually in some parts of the United States on April 10, honoring the relationships of siblings. Unlike Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, it is not federally recognized, though the Siblings Day Foundation is working to change this. Since 1998, the governors of 49 states have officially issued proclamations to recognize Siblings Day in their state.

April 12, 2018 – Holocaust Remembrance Day

April 17, 2018 – Tax Day

Come on down to Dunrite Metal Fabricators & CYA Powder Coating for a FREE LUNCH as well as the chance to win prizes! While you’re here take a tour of the shop and watch us burn some sweet metal.

April 22, 2018 – Earth Day

The April 22 Earth Day, founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson, was first organized in 1970 to promote ecology and respect for life on the planet as well as to encourage awareness of the growing problems of air, water, and soil pollution.

Some people prefer to observe Earth Day around the time of the March equinox. In 1978, American anthropologist Margaret Mead added her support for the equinox Earth Day, founded by John McConnell. She stated that the selection of the March Equinox for Earth Day made planetary observance of a shared event possible.

The Start to A Great Year


Goodbye 2017 and hello 2018! I am so excited to announce that we have many new events we are hosting this year! One of my FAVORITES are going to be the Morning Pick Me Up Breakfast Drive Thru’s. I know, you’re probably like… drive thru? But yup, I said it. Now to see my precious freckled face you don’t have to get our of your car! You just pull on up to my booth I’ll have setup outside and ill give you COFFEE and some breakfast snacks, donuts, treats, or whatever else I feel like throwing in there to help you start your day off with a little Pick Me Up. 🙂

Now… Let me give you al little backstory on how I came up with this. I used to be a military wife. I lived on base and was involved with the community and all that cool jazz. It was fun and I got to meet some awesome people. Some I still keep in touch with till this day. But one thing I thought was really cool was in the neighborhoods, they would have booths set up in the morning with people giving out quick little breakfast snacks & goodies. Who doesn’t love some free food!? Which is why when I heard, I decided to give it a go. I pulled up to the stand where some of the other wives had prepared little goodie bags ready to hand out. They greeted me with a smile and gave me a bag and a water and sent me on my way. Just that little maybe one minute stop.. Made my day. And thats what I want to share this year. I have setup a few dates where I will be hosting a Morning Pick Me Up and I challenge you to swing through and try it. Give me some feedback, tell me if I didn’t give you just the pick up you needed to start the day.

Our first Morning Pick Me Up is scheduled for this Valentine’s Day! So February 14th @ 7am I will have my booth all setup ready with COFFEE and goodie bags ready to show you some LOVE this Valentine’s Day. Below I will attach all of our upcoming events, we’ve got some great ones. Be sure to check them out!



Over and out!

Allow Me To Introduce Myself

Hello! My name is Ashley, I am the Social Media Manager here at Dunrite Metal Fabricators Inc. I started in March of 2017. It has been a fantastic 7 months. We’ve had so many projects come through the shop just in the small amount of time that I’ve been here. It has been so awesome to watch the guys work so diligently to bring these projects to life!

One thing I truly enjoy is being able to see these projects start from a basic sheet of metal and turn into something incredible. I have watched these guys bend, form, cut, weld, drill and grind for 8 hours a day for 5 days a week and the end result is always unbelievable. I love taking pictures of each process through a job. Not to mention, when the job is finished and installed I have the privilege to go on site and take pictures.

Anyways, when you see stuff on our website… Thats me! I am the behind the scenes man… well, woman. I stay behind the camera peeking trough my safety glasses to get the perfect shot of our latest project. Or maybe one of the guys is doing something I think looks cool, so I’ll snap that too. I also sit behind a computer screen scrolling through social media on this badass desk that was custom build, which I also took pictures of, for myself. I have the benefit of having such a cool job, but I also work for a really cool down to earth company that I am so honored to be a part of.

Next time you find yourself on our page and you like something, give it a like! That tells me I’m doing my job to get your attention and show you what Dunrite Metal Fabricators Inc. has to offer when it comes to the metal fabricating world. If you ever find yourself disliking something as well, let me know that too. I’ll keep it mind next time I do a post.

It’s been a pleasure introducing myself to you and thank you for taking the time to read my first blog!

Till next time,

-Ashley B.
