American Made Heroes!!

Viking Range Corp. ... selected as an American Made Hero Company!
Greenwood, Mississippi

The founder, president and CEO of Viking Range, Carl virtually invented the market for half-ton, restaurant-sized stoves in the home, launching his company in the late 1980s, just as a cooking craze swept American kitchens. The company rode a second wave of demand in the early 2000s, when the easy-money housing boom sent homebuyers, builders and remodelers on a shopping spree for $10,000 trophy stoves.

Viking's headquarters complex includes a 13,000-square-foot "training center" that looks like the set for Food Network show, complete with a kitchen showroom full of gleaming Viking appliances. The original range that Carl’s wife so admired, a Chambers, six-burner, two-oven, white enamel gas stove (the 90-C Special Deluxe model) occupies an honored space by the main entrance.

On the outskirts of town, the company operates a 230,000-square-foot factory for making stoves, along with another 153,000-square-foot facility refrigerator plant next door, a 95,000-square-foot plant for range hoods and vents and an 80,000-square-foot distribution center. We applaud and honor Viking Range for its' commintment to supporting its' community and providing USA jobs and is therefore welcomed as an American Made Hero Company!!!!                          

Devotion to domestic manufacturing and allegiance to community only go so far. To maintain an edge in an increasingly crowded market niche, Viking is relying on the manufacturing philosophy pioneered by Japanese manufacturers like Toyota. A combination of worker involvement and a relentless drive to improve manufacturing efficiency are keeping Viking competitive, said Carl.

Mr. Fred Carl Jr., Viking's President & CEO, applauded as an
American Made Hero Award Honoree.

Mr. Carl recognized at Faneuil Hall, Boston as a loyal & proud American!

“Allegiance is a big part of that, and by golly we are going to build in America no matter what,” he said. “We are going to work our brains out to make sure that we are able to do that and stay competitive. It's just extremely important to us. This is our product. It’s made by us right here in the Mississippi Delta and we plan on keeping it that way. That's just how we feel about that.” -- Mr. Fred Carl Jr.!!

"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.
