Business information story provided by Carpet One, Newport
Newport, OR — There are many advantages to buying products made in the USA. They help to keep more Americans on the job which means less unemployment. In fact, according to MadeinUSA.com, a patriotic listing service that allows customers to find products made in America, “each manufacturing job creates 5-8 additional jobs, such as suppliers, accountants, technical support, distributors and retail personnel who sell the products.” Purchasing products made in the USA also assures consumers that those products were made by workers who are treated fairly. Newport area flooring retailer Carpet One Floor & Home offers many options for consumers looking to purchase products made in the USA.
“Many of our customers don’t realize how many options they have for purchasing flooring that is made in the USA,” says Richard Keller, owner of Carpet One Floor & Home.
Carpet has a long history in the USA. According to the Carpet and Rug Institute, 98% of all carpet in use in the United States today was manufactured in the United States. The first carpet mill opened in 1797 in Philadelphia, PA. Today the carpet industry in the United States is heavily concentrated in Georgia where approximately 80% of all carpeting is made. Carpet One Floor & Home works closely with carpet mills in the United States to develop products that meet their customers’ needs.
“The newest innovation in carpet is super-soft fibers like those found in our Tigressá Cherish and Innovia Touch products.” says Keller “New technologies allow for the production of ultra-fine carpet fibers that are still strong enough to stand up to household use. This gives us carpets that are softer than ever before without compromising performance.”
Although not quite as common as carpet manufactured in the USA, Carpet One Floor & Home also offers many hardwood flooring options that are manufactured in the USA. One of these options is their Invincible hardwood. Invincible products stand up to heavy traffic and families with active lifestyles and feature a 50-year limited warranty.
Carpet One Floor & Home’s exclusive line of pink ribbon welcome mats is made in the USA as well. Welcome mats help to protect floors inside the home by trapping dirt that can stain and damage floors. Carpet One Floor & Home’s welcome mats also support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation – 25% of the sale price of each mat sold is donated.
