Element Sessions: Manufacturing Made in the USA


Nelson Wills, Partner & Vice President of Business Development at Element Designs in Charlotte, North Carolina, spoke with host James Kent on what it means to be a manufacturer based in the United States.

“We are the No. 1 economy in the world, and we’ve done that with a lot of hard work. There’s a lot of pride that goes into the term, ‘made in the USA,’” Wills said.

Wills pointed out the significant number of goods Americans rely on are manufactured in America, from food to construction.

“The supply chain is the driver of the quality equation,” Wills said, and that is why Element Designs works hard to source their materials in the U.S., as well.

With worldwide disruptions occurring due to the coronavirus outbreak, Wills said his company is well-prepared to handle the crisis. Customers have reached out to Element Designs to help them with products they can no longer get on time from overseas. To stay a leader in manufacturing, Wills said Americans have to stay focused on production and innovation.

“We have the resources, and we are the innovator. We have a good thing going,” he said. “Let’s stay productive and use the resources we have right here at home.”
