Made in NYC Looks to Give Manufacturing a Handcrafted Image #AmericanManufacturers #4thOfJuly

In honor of July 4th, today we celebrate American manufacturing by highlighting Made in NYC, an organization that promotes local manufacturing right here in the city that Adafruit calls home.

Check out this profile by The New York Times from earlier this year.

The image of the American factory floor is as classic as Henry Ford’s Model T assembly line and just as enduring in the popular imagination. For decades, manufacturing jobs have been the ladder to the middle class for Americans of modest means and education.

So when Made in NYC, a group that promotes local manufacturing, began an advertising campaign this spring, its goal was more than just to draw attention to items produced in the city. Supporters of that group and others like it around the country are trying to redefine what American manufacturing means in the 21st century.
