Homer Laughlin China Company Represents West Virginia During …

NEWELL, W. Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As the White House turns its focus to American-made products with a
weeklong program showcasing homegrown goods and companies, HLC Inc. is
proud to have been chosen to represent West Virginia in the “Made in
America Product Showcase” as part of “Made in America Week.” Only one
company from each of the 50 states was selected to be highlighted in the

“This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, a whirlwind adventure,
really,” said Katie Bricker, director of foodservice marketing, HLC Inc.
“I found out about this, like the rest of the country, late last week
and was so honored to be invited to represent West Virginia, but also in
a broader way among genuine American manufacturers from every corner of
the country.”

Since its founding during Ulysses S. Grant’s administration in 1871, HLC
has made its durable, lead-free dinnerware in America, and is the only
remaining large-scale U.S. manufacturer doing so. Classics like Fiesta®
are so much a part of the nation’s fabric that for many Americans, the
table isn’t complete until it is set with the colorful, collectible
dinnerware. And since 1959, the Homer Laughlin China Company has offered
a broad range of dinnerware for restaurants, hotels, and institutions.

Made in America Week seeks to honor the skilled tradespeople whose work
has set the standard for quality worldwide. As it relates to HLC, the
workers of the upper Ohio River Valley are the lifeblood of the company
name, lending their craftsmanship and dedication to making products that
stand the test of time.

“Homer Laughlin is so proud to manufacture in the U.S. and to supply
jobs to over 800 workers in our community. To have been recognized for
our commitment to being “Made in America” was truly remarkable,”
continued Bricker. “HLC has always been interested in American jobs and
American manufacturing—we’ve been doing it for 150 years. That’s the
kind of commitment we hope to see among all American enterprises.”

The company stands proudly with manufacturers from the other 49 states
to honor what American workers and American industries have been able to
