This week's episode of the Made In America Store show featured our newest 100% American made vendor, Medical Industries of the Americas! MI Americas is an an emerging leader in US made health, safety, medical, and personal protective equipment and supplies. Recently, we added their Non-Sterile Latex Safety Gloves to our inventory!
On our show, we talk about the COVID pandemic, and our reliance on foreign made PPE. When the pandemic hit, the demand for PPE sky rocketed, and it was predominantly being manufactured overseas. Eventually, the quality of the personal protective equipment went down tremendously in order for Asian manufacturers to be able to meet that demand.
We also talk about how the pandemic was a huge wake up call for our country. From distributors to end users, almost every American has come to the realization that we are way to dependent on other countries. Waiting for shipments of PPE for our doctors and nurses on the front line, toilet paper shortages, etc. It's time we bring manufacturing back to the United States!
