As part of President Donald Trump’s “Made in America” week, the administration recently invited businesses from around the country to a White House showcase event on Monday, July 17, where the president surveyed the various American-made products for himself.
Chamber member Bully Tools of Steubenville was invited to represent Ohio at the event and at a Made in America Roundtable on Wednesday, July 19.
“I got a call that said they were from the White House,” Mark Gracy, owner of Bully Tools, told WTOV News9. “It came in through our receptionist. They told me that the White House was on line one, and I was thinking that this must be one of my friends pranking me.”
“Being recognized as the company to represent Ohio is a big honor for us as well,” he added. “We came in, we were small, and we’ve grown and continue to grow.” Bully Tools is unique among American-Made companies, Gracy told WTOV, because they have a huge selection of products.
“All 200 products are 100 percent American-made. That’s a little bit unique. We’re one of the few companies that have a large, broad category. Some companies may make a product out of their line. Every single product we make is made in the USA. 100 percent labor and materials.”
