In recognition of National Manufacturing Day, the Town of Wilkesboro and Wilkes Chamber of Commerce sponsored a Wilkes County Manufacturing Day Celebration hosted by Worldwide Protective Products in Wilkesboro. Guests viewed the movie, “American Made Movie” which showed the positive impact of domestic manufacturing jobs on national and local economies in the face of great challenges. It is the ability of average Americans to adapt and innovate that has allowed the US to thrive. This is also true for Wilkes County manufacturing. Everyone has the power to transform our future and be a part of the solution through the choices you make everyday to purchase made in the USA products. Greg Plemmons of Worldwide Protective Products is shown below providing a tour of their manufacturing facility as part of the recognition ceremonies.
