July 2nd is Made in USA Day, a day devoted to promoting merchandise made or assembled in the USA. Founded in 1989, Made in USA Day was created to support US jobs and the US economy by shopping American products.
In 1991, Step2 began operations in Ohio with just five employees. Fast forward 25 years and we now employee more than 800 full-time employees right here in Ohio! Ninety percent of our toys, kids furniture and Home by Step2 items are manufactured in one of our two US-based manufacturing plants – one in Streetsboro and one in Perrysville. That’s over 4 million toys and mailboxes made here in the USA each year!
We’re also extremely proud to state that 80% of the materials used by Step2 are sourced within a 100 mile radius of their headquarters and 10% of the materials used by Step2 are sourced within a 700 mile radius of their headquarters.
During a recent trip to our headquarters in Streetsboro, the Step2 Brand Ambassadors had the opportunity to make their own KidAlert & Pup signs in the Streetsboro factory!
