As a part of President Trump’s first-ever ‘Made in America Week’, Bully Tools CEO Mark Gracy spoke at a roundtable that brought together business leaders in manufacturing with government officials. On Wednesday, July 19, 2017, Gracy was among several CEOs invited to attend the discussion in the East Room of the White House, led by the President himself. There, each attendee was welcomed and asked to speak about their business and the direction that they believed the future of U.S. manufacturing was heading in.
This was Gracy’s second visit to the White House that week. He and Bully Tools’ Plant Operations Manager David Caroll represented the state of Ohio in a Made in America Product Showcase where they proudly displayed some of the hand tools crafted at the Bully Tools headquarters in Steubenville, Ohio.
President Trump’s dedication to supporting American companies was evident in his proclamation to make the third week of July ‘Made in America Week’.
“We’re here today to continue our celebration of American manufacturing as part of ‘Made in America Week’. The leaders and innovators around this table create the products that fill our homes, defend our nation, and enrich our lives. And each one of these products proudly carries the label, Made in the USA,” said President Trump.
