Rutland, VT: Ann Clark Cookie Cutters has been selected to represent Vermont at this year’s “Made in America Product Showcase,” hosted by The White House on Monday, July 23rd. This year’s event will feature manufacturing companies from across the country, with one company representing each of the fifty states.
The event is expected to be attended by members of the Cabinet, Members of Congress, White House Senior Staff, and the President. Ann Clark Ltd. was asked to represent Vermont because of its “commitment to making products in the United States.”
“I believe products should be made in the United States” says Ben Clark, CEO of Ann Clark Ltd., adding: “Our little company has proven that US made products can be profitable.”
For nearly three decades, Ann Clark has been the brand of cookie cutters that families and baking professionals have turned to. The company has humble beginnings, founded in 1989 when Ann Clark had the idea to transform her popular pig shape ornament into a cookie cutter. Twenty-nine years later, the company makes millions of cookie cutters and employs nearly fifty Vermonters. Ann’s son Ben now runs the company and continues to uphold the Clark family’s standards for exceptional design, quality products and competitive American manufacturing. The company has grown to become the largest manufacturer of cookie cutters in the world.
“There are many benefits to making products in the United States,” says Ben, “we create jobs, support our community, control the quality of our product and deliver our products faster than the competition.” The company’s success is a testament to this philosophy. Ann Clark Ltd. is currently expanding its manufacturing capacity and is hiring additional staff.
The company is delighted to be included in this year’s Made in America Product Showcase. “The invitation took us completely by surprise,” said Ann “We look forward to showcasing our products at the White House.” Ben Clark and National Sales Manager John Romano will represent the company at the event with a selection of their cookie cutters.
