CALIFORNIA FAUCETS ACHIEVES MADE IN CALIFORNIA PROGRAM STATUS
The program recognizes the company for economic growth contributions and job creation
May 23, 2012 | Press Release
(Huntington Beach, CA, May 23, 2012) California Faucets has earned recognition by the Made in California Program. The program, supported by California Manufacturing Technology Consulting (CMTC), a non-profit organization partly funded by the US Department of Commerce, is committed to retaining and cultivating as many jobs as possible of the 44,000 manufacturers that produce products within in “The Golden State.” California Faucets is among manufactures publicly recognized by CMTC that create American jobs. The distinction marks a milestone in the company’s history of employing more American labor per faucet manufactured than most any manufacturer in the industry.
In the only US state that ranks in the top ten––eighth, just behind Italy––of the world’s largest economies, California Faucets prides itself on employing local labor to hand-finish each of its made-to-order custom faucets. “When you purchase a fitting from California Faucets, you’re supporting one of the few faucet manufacturers that actually finishes and assembles its product right here in the California,” says senior vice president of marketing and sales Noah Taft, pointing out most US faucet companies procure fully assembled and finished product from abroad for marketing and distribution in the US.
At the California Faucets Huntington Beach manufacturing facility, highly skilled workers execute all design, engineering, assembly, finishing, water testing, and quality control for the company’s premier line of custom faucets. The company focuses on labor-intensive manufacturing processes rather than mass production to yield top-quality fittings, which are hand-finished to the last detail. The distinction marks a milestone in the company’s history of employing more American labor per faucets sold than most any manufacturer in the industry.
