Congresswoman Tenney Attends White House Made in America Showcase with Liberty Tabletop-Sherrill Manufacturing
Liberty Tabletop-Sherrill Manufacturing was the sole business chosen to represent the state of New York
Washington, D.C.— Today, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) attended President Trump’s Made in America Showcase where Liberty Tabletop-Sherrill Manufacturing was chosen to represent the state of New York. This event celebrates every state’s effort and commitment to American-made products and allows each company to speak with senior Administration officials, including the President, the Vice President, members of the Cabinet, and senior staff. The requirements to be chosen are the product should contain no – or negligible – foreign content, final assembly or processing must take place in the U.S. and the company manufacturing the products should be American-owned and operated.
“Our district is the proud home of Liberty Tabletop-Sherrill Manufacturing and through my continued advocacy, the Trump Administration invited them to represent the state of New York at their annual Made in America Showcase. As the only flatware manufacturer made 100 percent in America, Sherrill Manufacturing has proven their commitment to our nation and our community time and again,” said Congresswoman Claudia Tenney. “The hard work of the owners and employees at Sherrill Manufacturing have rebounded our domestic flatware production and grown our Upstate economy. It was an honor to see such a great company from New York’s 22nd District at the White House representing the state of New York.”
Additionally, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney introduced the Support Procurement of our Nation’s Stainless Steel (SPOONSS) Act of 2017. This bipartisan bill would restore the Berry Amendment’s longstanding domestic sourcing requirement for stainless steel flatware. In November 2017, Rep. Tenney met with President Trump and asked that the White House use the American Made flatware. In July 2017, President Trump invited Greg Owens and Matt Roberts to the White House for a Made in America roundtable discussion to highlight their company’s commitment to producing 100% Made in America products.
