Allen Edmonds is well on the way to becoming a global brand.

“At the low point, maybe 2003 or 2004, we had pretty much defaulted on our loans to the bank,” Cabot says. “We’d be in meetings with the loan officers that would end with them backing out of the conference room saying, ‘Please, no more surprises.’ They expected us to declare Chapter 11 minutes after we drove out of the parking lot.”

"My testimony derives from over 15 years of research on the business environments in China.

“As a manufacturer of high-end residential metal roofing, our primary customer base is in the United States. It always has been and always will be. It would be preposterous for us, when our primary customer base is in the USA, to not also be supporting the USA by manufacturing our products in the United States from US-made components. To so anything else would simply not be right."

Many large brands decide to make gross margin their most important objective, but the result of their collective focus on margin has been a significant decline in the economic base of many American industries in many different cities. I find it particularly disingenuous when major companies that have built their empires on an "All-American" brand perception now produce their entire lines in China."

"First, we must balance our trade deficit by making trade fair. Some of our trading partners, China for example, have become our trading enemies by devaluing their currency, basically giving us their unemployment problem in return for buying our debt. Putting pressure on China to end their currency manipulation and illegal trade practices will immediately lead to more U.S.-based manufacturing -- jobs we desperately need back."

I’m originally from the small town of Fort Payne, AL, which is formerly known as the sock capital of the world. Funny but true. Until about 10 years ago, a very large percentage of socks you could purchase in these United State of America were made in our quaint little town. Unfortunately, outsourcing has greatly taken away from Fort Payne’s textile tradition.

"Not only the wealth, but the independence and security of a country, appear to be materially connected with the prosperity of manufacturers. Every nation ... ought to endeavor to possess within itself all the essentials of a national supply. They comprise the means of subsistence, habitation, clothing and defense ... The expediency of encouraging manufactures in the United States, which was not long since deemed very questionable, appears at this time to be pretty generally admitted."
