School House: Keeping it Made in America
This past Sunday, MSNBC’s Your Business profiled a company called School House. Based in North Carolina, School House produces collegiate apparel for various colleges and universities across the nation.
School House had been manufacturing its products in Sri Lankan factories. However, CEO Rachel Weeks & COO Susan Williams eventually decided that it was time to bring School House production back to America.
The MSNBC clip below tells Rachel & Susan’s story of finding a factory in the United States that could accommodate School House’s needs. Though they describe the process as “difficult,” School House merchandise is now 100% Made in America.
