American Made Heroes!!

Channel Craft Toys ... selected as an American Made Hero Company!
Charleroi, Pennsylvania

Channel Craft has been manufacturing Authentic American Toys, Games and Puzzles that are "Quality Crafted" right here in the U.S.A. for over 25 years now. You'll find American Pastimes that are produced by skilled craftsmen and women to ensure aesthetic beauty, durability and great play value.

According to the Toy Industry Association approximately 90 percent of the toys our children play with are made in China. Channel Craft Toy Company, however, makes more than 100 authentic American-crafted toys right here in Charleroi, Pennsylvania. The wood used to make items like whistles and tic tac toe boards are locally grown and include poplar and sassafras.

Charleroi, just outside of Pittsburgh and once a thriving steel mill town, was crippled in the 1970s when the mills were shuttered. The founder & owner Mr. Helfer said the mill closings caused a mass exodus and he estimates the town of Charleroi is about half the population it was 20 years ago. As testimony to the American spirit and entreprenurial zeal, today Helfer has replaced his workshop van he started in with a 32,000-foot manufacturing plant employing more than 30 permanent American employees. Mr. Helfer has no interest in leaving the USA to do his manufacturing in China. "Everything that we sell is and will be made here in the United States," he said.!!!!                          !!!!!

"I've got over 10,000 customers that are proud of that too," he said. "The retailers that sell Channel Craft Toys like to boast that the products in their toy store, in their national park, in their museum is made right here in the United States." We applaud, honor and welcome Mr. Helfer and all the employees of Channel Craft Toys as proud members of American Made Hero Company!

"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."        Alexander Hamilton ... an American Made Hero!!

Patriotism, Jobs Primary Motivations for 'Buying American'

PRINCETON, NJ -- Forty-five percent of Americans say they recently made a special effort to buy products made in the United States. When asked why, these shoppers mainly cited patriotic or altruistic goals related to the national economy, including creating and keeping jobs in the U.S., rather than product-specific considerations such as quality, safety, or cost.    Click here for survey results.
