America First 2016 Trade Show
and Products Expo to Be Held on November 9th, 2016.
In 1965, manufacturing accounted for 53% of the domestic economy; by
2004 it was down to 9%. Between February 2001 and February 2016, the
United States lost two thirds of the remaining manufacturing jobs.
In addition, manufacturing employment has declined by tens of
thousands of jobs in the past month alone. The gravity of these
facts has not escaped Solco Plumbing Supply, a New York City-based
plumbing supply distributor, who is taking action to spread
awareness about the decline in domestic manufacturing.
On Wednesday, November 9th, 2016, Solco will host "America First
2016," a trade show focusing exclusively on American made plumbing
products. Solco will bring over 300 trade plumbers, developers,
architects and designers together with over 50 of America's leading
plumbing and heating manufacturers. Kohler, Delta, Charlotte Pipe
and Elkay Manufacturing are just a few among the many American
manufacturers that have committed to support this function. These
companies represent the finest, most recognized lineup of domestic
manufacturing in the plumbing supply industry. They have a story to
tell, and Solco wants to help them tell it.
