Montauk Tackle Company
The list below will show you what one small American Made Company can do and how each shirt we sell at MTC filters through our US economy. In our nations history it has never been more important to support each other. I believe it is up to U.S. to pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps despite Washington Politics.
Here are the Americans MTC affects directly. Some folks are individuals and some are part of companies that have a dozen employees or even hundreds.
It starts with our fabric. Lena (NY/CA) who has her group mill the fabrics to our specs, Joann (NY) our sample maker, Tony (NY) and his group that make the patterns, Ming (NY) and his group that cut all the fabric. Mike(NJ) and his group that embroiders our logo on the sleeves for us. Denise (NY) and her group who silk screen our logo on our shirts. Jeffie (NY) and her group that sew it all together. Gary (CA) who gets all of our size labels/hangtags/bumper stickers printed. Gee (NY) and his storefront for thread and zippers, John (NY) and his store for buttons. Uline (IL) for poly bags, boxes, tape. Avery Dennis (IL) for UPC codes, Robert (NY) our messenger/trucking service, Lauren (NY) and her group that warehouse, pick and pack for us, Pat (NY) our UPS driver. The employees at the Staples store in Freeport (NY) (office supplies), Roy (NY) our landlord, Barbara (NY) our Bookkeeper, Glen (NY) our Accountant, Chris (NY) our attorney, Jack (NY) who services my truck, Hess employees in Oceanside (NY) where I get my diesel, Marcel (PA) design/ads/website(my right hand man) Our marketing effort (think about the printers running the presses, editors, writers, office workers at each of the following magazines) Patti(TX) our sales rep at Texas Saltwater Angler Mag., Boone (FL) Florida Sportfishing mag., Bill (CA) Pacific Coast Sport Fishing, Mark, (FL) Sport Fishing, Marlin, Saltwater Sportsman, Saltwater Fly Fishing Mags., 3Dcart-our webhosting company. Mike (TX) our sales rep and his group in Texas. Bob (NH) our sales rep group in the northeast. Trade shows we attend, FL/NV/UT flights, hotels, car rentals, meals.
Our retailers to name a few big and small, who I want to thank for giving MTC a shot and supporting an American Made Company. Fred (NJ) at Tackle Direct, Kim (FL) Capt. Harry’s, Norma, (TX) Tackle Unlimited, Ben (NH) Orvis, Mark (NY) Baypark Marine, Toni (CT) The Dock Shop, Mike (OH) Newport Dry Goods.
As our Business expands, we have already identified Mills and Factories in North and South Carolina for the future. With expansion comes more U.S employment, rep groups in the southeast and west coast. Expanding advertising and trade show events.
Buying American Made is the right thing to do. Right now. There are some great American Made products out there. And I am sure no matter what you are looking for or need you can find an American company that could fulfill that need. Rest assure that company is also effecting the lives of American families as well. There are a bunch of blogs and Facebook pages that list all kinds of American made products. Google American Made. Here are a few URL’s to check out.
Please, if you can, share our American story, a True American Brand, with your friends, family, business associates and any media contacts you may have. The sooner we expand the sooner we can engage more fabric mills, factories, truckers, warehouse workers..…well you get the idea.
