Allen Edmonds Shoe Corporation
Proudly an American Made Hero Company!
"This is a terrific company founded in 1922. I feel very honored to be a part of it. We are proud to be a Made in the USA
company and we appreciate all of your support." -- Paul D. Grangaard, President & CEO.
The skilled artisans crafting the finest shoes in the world in Port Washington, Wisconsin along with the owners and senior
management of Allen Edmonds Shoe Corporation are all hereby recognized and honored as true
for their obvious commitment to maintaining their shoe manufacturing operations
and good jobs right here in the United States of America!
The Allen Edmonds Shoe Corporation, a privately owned Port Washington, Wisconsin company, is one of the few remaining
independent shoemakers in the United States. Allen Edmonds shoes are well regarded by shoe aficionados around the world.
Manufacturing is labor intensive, a process that includes more than 200 separate steps. Allen-Edmonds shoes have been worn
by U.S. presidents and other prominent office holders, as well as Hollywood stars and other celebrities.
"One of the things I like best about my job is reading letters from people I call “Allen Edmonds Men” – stand up guys who
invariably take their multiple roles in life very seriously, and themselves less so. They always have interesting, often
entertaining and even inspirational tales to tell about an experience with their Allen Edmonds shoes. We’re honored to be
associated with these men." -- Paul D. Grangaard, President & CEO.

"Allen Edmonds is well on the way to becoming a global brand. We’ve had significant sales in Europe for a generation, and our recent agreement with a
Chinese partner to open Allen Edmonds stores in China – bringing our “Made in USA” products there in a reversal of decades-long trends – has the potential
to double our sales and our international awareness over the next several years." -- Paul D. Grangaard
"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."

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.
