Mesquite, NV (PressExposure) March 11, 2012 -- GoCeilingMedallion.com product manager Bob Tomaskovic recently stated at a meeting of investors that "a strong manufacturing segment is what made possible the emergence of the middle class in America. Increasing our offering of made in the USA products will benefit GoCeilingMedallion.com, our customers and the country as a whole. That being said, I am proud to announce the GoCeilingMedallion.com Made in the USA initiative. By actively seeking out small US manufacturers and offering their products prominent placement in the GoCeilingMedallion.com online catalog we can do our small part to stimulate the economy while increasing value for both our investors and our customers."
To show our commitment to this initiative, PRT Enterprises, parent company of GoCeilingMedallion.com has registered to use the Made in USA Brand Certification Mark to identify its new line of products manufactured entirely in the USA.
In a companywide sales meeting to announce the decision to register and use the made in USA Brand Certification Mark when marketing American-made products, Bob also stated "I'm happy that we have been able to follow through on our commitment to offer American-made products to our customers, but until now have not had a good way to differentiate between American-made products and imported goods. The Made in USA Brand Certification Mark will provide our customers with an easily recognizable way to identify our American-made products. GoCeilingMedallion.com has long recognized the value of American Manufacturing, to our customers and to our country as a whole and is committed to supporting it anyway we can."
The made in USA Brand Certification Mark is the only one registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the identification of goods made or grown in the United States. This initiative is good news for United States businesses and consumers alike, coming at a time when buying American, and American jobs and manufacturing are hot topics of discussion in the media, in Washington, DC and around our dinner tables.
American consumers have always regarded trusted symbols such as the Better Housekeeping Seal and other certification marks to align our buying decisions with our values. The made in USA Brand Certification Mark joins the ranks of other symbols such as Certified Organic, Certified Gluten-Free and Rainforest Alliance Certified.
Marcie Gabor, a principal at Conrad Phillips Vutech, a marketing and branding firm located in Columbus Ohio, is responsible for the origination of the Made in USA Brand Certification Mark. It is based on the Federal Trade Commission's rules for compliance with Made in the USA claims of origin. Gabor states that "American companies now have a distinctive registered certification mark for labeling United States as country of origin on their goods. Consumers will be able to identify at a glance products that are made in the USA."
In one year the number of Made in USA Brand certified companies grew from only 15 to over 300 companies. GoCeilingMedallion.com is proud to be among that number.
