Angus-Palm Industries Maintains Gold Status as I Make America Supporter

Angus-Palm and its employees have continued to voice their strong support of I Make America’s call for pro-manufacturing policies in the U.S. and as a result have maintained their Gold status in the campaign.

The Watertown, South Dakota-based manufacturer, a Worthington Industries company, first achieved Gold-level status for its I Make America activities in 2011.

“Angus-Palm supports I Make America because it’s a strong voice for our company, our employees, and our communities, advocating for pro-manufacturing policies that will increase jobs in our industry and benefit the entire economy,” said Bob Kluver, president of Angus-Palm. “In addition, the I Make America campaign offers our people a way to express the pride we feel in being a part of the U.S. manufacturing industry. I Make America represents our culture and our way of life. We feel a part of something that is important to each of us.”

“We commend Angus-Palm for maintaining its industry-leading Gold status in the I Make America campaign,” said AEM President Dennis Slater. “As a member of AEM, Angus-Palm exemplifies the commitment we need from all manufacturers around the country to send the message to Congress and the White House that our economy is in urgent need of a new manufacturing policy that will create jobs now and for the long term.”
