Best of MetalMiner — US Manufacturing

We were recently lucky enough to go on a tour of Elkay Manufacturing where we saw American manufacturing at its finest. From state of the art robotic equipment to an amazing laser cutter, we saw a degree of quality and care go into the production of product that may be tough to beat in other parts of the world. But the world of industrial manufacturing continues to evolve.
