Riverdale Mills Corporation ... Northbridge, Massachusetts
... proudly an American Made Hero Company!

On May 1, 1979, boards came off the windows of an abandoned mill building in Northbridge, Massachusetts. This building would come alive with newly built machinery to produce a different material for making lobster traps for New England lobstermen. This new material called Aquamesh®, was the first of its kind and in December 1980 the first shipment was made to Maine. Today, Aquamesh is used in making nearly 90% of the lobster traps in New England. Aquamesh, as well as many other Riverdale products, is shipped all over the world.

"We're proud of reclaiming an old mill building for our manufacturing plant, generating our own electricity via hydropower, heating our plant with captured heat from our processes and by generating electricity with gas fired diesel generators. These are savings we pass on to our customers ... and we ship all over the world!"

For his building a thriving business in an old New England mill town and in an old New England mill thus employing today's American manufacturing workers, James Knott Sr. and all the employees of Riverdale Mills Corporation are hereby recognized and applauded as American Made Heroes!

"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!
