Tessier’s is Proud of Products Made in the USA

Here at Tessier’s Hardware we have always carried well known brands.

Way back, ALL of our products were Made in the USA, but over the years, a lot of companies moved overseas for cheaper manufacturing.   However, many products and brands have made sure they have stayed on American soil, concept and manufacturing alike.  Over the past couple of years, we have noticed a resurgence for the demand and appreciation of products still Made in the USA.  Also, there has been a great joining of forces from other retailers like us, hardware stores, lumber yards, and DIY stores, to be more aware and conscious of buying and offering Made in the USA products and making them available to our consumers.

We all have to band together to make a change and turn this country back to the way things used to be, supporting products manufactured here in the USA is the first step and demanding that other products be brought back here for manufacture is next.

Shop Small, Shop Local, Buy Made in the USA, Buy Green…..this is the key to getting the USA back on it’s feet!!!

Here’s a list of a lot of the Made in the USA Tessier’s Hardware carries:
