|Caskata's Commitment to US Manufacturing
Domestic porcelain manufacturing in this country left decades ago in a mass exodus to Asia, which makes our commitment to manufacturing our products here in the USA all the more remarkable. When we began manufacturing our products, the number of professional potteries in this country could be counted on just a single hand, and after the economic meltdown of 2008 that number was cut in half.
Today, those few potteries are seeing steady growth, largely through the growth of demand from companies like us, and most are located in the Northwest corner of Ohio. It’s the last bastion of domestic porcelain manufacturing, with skills passed through multiple generations over many years. We think of our decorators as our artistic partners, and we value the enormous expertise and depth of knowledge they bring to the production process.
In North Carolina, for Insignia C, our bone china is made in the last operating bone china manufacturing facility in this country. Here, too, the highly skilled employees are proud to cite 20, 30, and 40 years of experience. When we visit these facilities, the idea of “Made in America” becomes something very personal, and when we see the skill level, artistry, and care that goes into the making of each piece, “Made in America” becomes a really compelling statement. We’re proud of our commitment to supporting manufacturing in this country, and we’re proud to be a part of the artisanal resurgence driving the growth of this manufacturing sector domestically.
