A Copper Tubing Manufacturer is Bringing Jobs Back
AAM fan Brian Dreisbach shared this hopeful story on our Facebook page. With all the recent talk of outsourcing, it's great to see that some companies still see the value in bringing jobs and production back to the United States.
Cambridge-Lee Industries, a copper tubing manufacturer, has increased their employment by 13 percent in a little over a year.
So what caused the company to bring on new hires in the midst of a recession? According to readingeagle.com it was the Buy America provision in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The company is moving production from Mexico to Reading. The article quoted plant floor manager Bryan Snyder who said " 'Made in America' is always better than 'Made in Mexico' or 'Made in China' or anywhere else."
