Made in Elma, New York: A special delivery from Mark Andol

Posted by TGarland on 04/09/2014

The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) is finally the VERY proud owner of American-made paper towel holders.

Since moving into our American-made office in late 2012, we’ve searched far and wide for a paper towel holder to complete our “hip industrial” kitchen, to no avail.

But then opportunity presented itself in the form of Mark Andol. We met the owner of General Welding & Fabricating and the Made in America Store during last year's American Made Movie Bus Tour, and asked if he could make one for us. After all, General Welding & Fabricating's motto is “You dream it. We build it.”

Well, guess what? Wish fulfilled: Last week we received our very own American-made paper towel holders. Made in Elma, New York, the paper towel holders incorporated every trade in Andol’s shop — with one special touch: Andol and his team added the AAM acronym to the design.

Thank you Mr. Andol and your team at General Welding & Fabricating. You’ve built one of our dreams and you’re helping to build ours too, by strengthening and supporting American manufacturing with work at the Made in America Store!
