Our mission started in late 2011, but our motivation to get involved in the "Made in America" Community was stirred years earlier with our own shopping frustrations for American-made products. We wanted to utilize and build upon our desktop IT skills to create a mobile solution to help Consumers find - and help others find - products proudly bearing the "Made in USA" label, so we invested 2 man years to learn the tools and technologies necessary to move from the desktop solution environment to the world of mobile devices.
Our research showed there were many websites with directories of American Manufacturers grouped into categories, showing a Company's logo, address, phone number and biographical information, and that can take a visiter to a Company's online presence. There were a variety of "Made in America" eCommerce sites listing or selling American-made products, but most carried a limited selection. A hand-full of "Made in USA" focused mobile apps existed in 2010 - 2011, but most were not maintained or contained static listings of Manufacturers.
What are the American-made Products sold in my area, who are the Retailers that sell them and which is closest to me? Can I learn who the Manufacturer is and are their products sold online? How can I let others know about "Made in USA" Products that I find? ..."Go4 USA" was born on December 11, 2012.
