New Age Industrial Corp., a FEDA manufacturer member specializing in aluminum products, has been accepted into the Kansas Department of Commerce’s Made in Kansas program. The Made in Kansas program is designed to showcase Kansas-made products and provide participating companies with a verified stamp of assurance for use in promotional activities.
To join the Made in Kansas program, businesses must utilize the manufacturing process in the production of products. At least one of the following additional criteria must be met as well: half the components of the product must be Made in Kansas, final assembly of the product must take place in Kansas, or the headquarters must be based in Kansas and include the functions of design and/or engineering products. The Kansas Department of Commerce reviews and approves all applications and determines eligibility for the program.
“We are honored to be accepted into the Made in Kansas program,” Vice President Tom Sharp said. “We are committed to manufacturing high-quality products in Norton, Kansas, and we are proud to be part of this new program.”
New Age Industrial Corp has a long history of manufacturing aluminum products in Norton, Kansas. The company was founded in 1966 and has been locally owned and operated ever since.
“Some of the highest quality aluminum products in the world are made right here in Kansas, but the world might not know that yet,” Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Commerce David Toland said in the most recent program announcement. “This initiative highlights first-class manufacturers that contribute significantly to their local communities as well as the overall state economy.”
As a participant in the Made in Kansas program, New Age Industrial Corp will have access to a variety of resources and benefits, including access to the exclusive Made in Kansas seal to feature on packaging, products and promotional materials. According to the program’s website, “The Made in Kansas logo is more than just a label. It is a symbol of the pride that Kansans have in every product they create. It shows that the products are made with excellence, reliability and consistency, and that they meet the highest standards of quality and performance.”
