Greenlee Textron Inc. introduced the Building America campaign to highlight over a century of designing, building and packaging products in the United States. Building America shares the stories of employees that craft Greenlee tools in the six manufacturing facilities.
The stories can be viewed online. Since 1862, Greenlee has utilized a combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and state-of-the-art equipment to produce high-quality tools.
Richard Mayberry, a machinist at the Rockford plant who has been with Greenlee since 1973, has seen some of Greenlee’s biggest technological advances.
“I believe in the quality of Greenlee tools because I’ve been making them for decades,” said Mayberry. “We put American innovation and hard work into the tools we build here, and our customers appreciate that we’re manufacturing right here in the USA.”
“For 155 years, Greenlee has been manufacturing the tools that keep professional safe and productive in the field. And we’ve been doing it with generations of family, friends and neighbors in our local communities – that’s significant in today’s environment.” said Rishi Malhotra, vice president of marketing for Greenlee. “The men and women in each of our seven facilities proudly invest themselves in creating tools to support the professional, and their craftsmanship shows.”
