Thanks for reporting a problem. We'll attach technical data about this session to help us figure out the issue. Which of these best describes the problem?

Rhode Island Made

Manufacturing has played a key role in the Ocean State's history, from the Industrial Revolution's beginnings at Slater Mill to the jewelry, keepsakes, windows, and doors that have been designed and manufactured in our own backyard since then. Manufacturers in Rhode Island have also been a valuable part of overcoming the Great Recession, providing jobs to residents and pumping over $1 billion into our economy over the past few years.

In this second installment of Custom Built's "Be Local" series, hear from employees as they share:

  • Why it's important to locally make what you install
  • Benefits of being built locally
  • What stands out about working for a local manufacturer
