Zippo

Headquarters: Bradford, Pennsylvania

George G. Blaisdell, Zippo's founder, started making lighters in 1932 based on an Austrian lighter design. Since then, Zippo lighters have become iconic collectible items, with more than 4 million collectors in the United States. On June 5, 2012, the company produced its 500 millionth lighter. In the more than 80 years since starting, Zippo has become one of the most recognizable brands in the world, with its lighters being sold in more than 160 countries. They also have appeared in more than 1,500 movies, the company says. Today, George Duke, Blaisdell's grandson, owns Zippo along with the Case Cutlery Co., acquired in 1994, and the Ronson brand of lighters and fuel, acquired in 2010.

American Plastic Toys

Headquarters: Walled Lake, Michigan

American Plastic Toys has been producing toys in the United States since 1962. It buys all of the plastic to make the toys in the U.S., and the color it uses in all of its products is also purchased domestically and FDA approved. Most of the components in the products are molded in the company's plants or purchased from U.S. companies. The company also tests every American Plastic Toys product by at least one independent U.S. safety-testing lab. While customers cannot purchase products online, American Plastic Toys are available from most major mass merchants, including Walmart, Toys R Us and Dollar General.

Our president enjoys many millions of dollars through the production of cheap forgien labor. I'll believe he means what he says when he and his daughter moves all of the production of her expensive, high end clothing line to our nation.

Not sure how others would be able to control a company not to send it's operation overseas............unless you can cut corporate tax rates to keep them in the US

Please. Corporations don't pay a supposedly 35% tax rate. Apple payed a tax rate of 25.8%. Microsoft tax rate was 16.5%. Alphabet tax rate was 19%. But I do understand it's a global economy. This basically means global wages. This means our U.S. Workforce is overpaid. We must drop our wages to align with China and India.

Ultimately you pay all taxes.... corporate, individual even in death. You can't escape taxes or death.
