Natalie 1

Empowerment Through Employment

If you ask what she thinks of her job, Natalie Davis would say, “I really enjoy it.” Natalie was recently hired by All American Clothing Company in Arcanum where she works in the warehouse supporting order fulfillment. Natalie’s job provides a variety of tasks in a team environment.

In October 2011, Natalie began her journey with the Community First Department (CF) of the Darke County Board of Developmental Disabilities. The CF department assists individuals with learning job skills, applying for jobs, and on-the-job training. Natalie successfully learned how to write a resume, gather references, and interview. She applied and interviewed for jobs with the CF department’s assistance and now holds two part-time jobs.

When the opportunity to interview at All American Clothing Company occurred, Natalie was excited and nervous. Natalie applied what she had learned through her CF experiences and was offered the position. Lawson Nickol, co-owner of All American Clothing Company, shared, “We’re happy to have the ability to give someone an opportunity and a chance.”

Natalie expresses that she enjoys the people she works with and the tasks she performs. According to Logan Beam, Director of Marketing and Communication, from All American Clothing Company, “In an age where approximately 98 percent of all clothing worn by Americans is produced overseas… All American Clothing Co. is one of the only clothing companies in the country to manufacture all of its products within the United States, using exclusively American raw materials. The cotton in a pair of All American Jeans is grown in the United States. The denim is woven here as well. The buttons and zippers are made here, too. And despite the fact that American labor is significantly more expensive than foreign labor, All American Clothing Co. manufactures all of its apparel in the United States with a mission to support American workers.” Natalie is proudly one of the American workers sending American-made clothing to doorsteps.

When asked what Natalie brings to the work place her supervisor, Kim Burns, explained, “Natalie brings diversity to our work place. Most of us take life skills for granted, and until you are blessed with the opportunity to work with an individual who has a disability, you can’t truly understand how much they want success as much as anyone does.”

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month as a reminder that people who have disabilities have a desire to work. When Kim was asked what effect Natalie has had on her or her co-workers, she expressed, “Working with Natalie has brought awareness of the need for job opportunities for individuals with disabilities. It does take additional time and patience to train, but in the end if you have helped someone gain confidence and new job skills everyone who has been involved will have a sense of accomplishment.” Businesses interested in learning more and partnering with the Darke County Board of DD can contact Rodney Willis, Community First Director at 937-548-9057.

Made in the USA: The 30 Day Journey

Documentary Film Features All American Clothing Co.

Forever changed by witnessing the devastation in his hometown after an aluminum plant shuts down due to outsourcing, Josh Miller sets out on a 30 day journey across America to find out if “Made in the USA” really means anything anymore.

Throughout the journey Josh lives off of “Made in USA” products to the best of his ability, and speaks to the people in the heart of America (including the Founders of All American Clothing Co.) about the issues facing America today as the continued outsourcing of the manufacture of goods erodes the manufacturing backbone of the American economy, and the dreams of countless workers around the nation.

The All American Clothing Co. is proud to be a part of the film "Made in the USA: The 30 Day Journey." As Josh Miller attempted to find if "made in USA" really meant anything anymore, he stopped by All American Clothing Co. headquarters and interviewed our Founders about the importance of American made. The interview is featured in the documentary film. It is one you will not want to miss!

Lucas Oil Pro Pulling Season Begins For Judge Pulling Team

Lucas Oil Pro Pulling Season Begins

Judge Pulling Team Off to Rough Start, Long Season Ahead

Rainy weather led to challenging track conditions as the Judge Pulling Team took a ninth and sixth place finish respectively in a Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League event at the TS Outlaw Pull held in Franklin, KY.

With a lengthy season ahead, the team remains confident about producing better results and moving up in the point standings in 2014.

"Judge Pulling Team had a rough start to the 2014 season. Track conditions were not ideal and we had trouble navigating our tractor down the track. With a ninth and sixth place finish, we have a lot of ground to make up. It is a long season and we are confident that The iON Judge can make some headway into the top 5. We need to put together some good passes at the next three hooks." - Darrick Barga , The Judge Pulling Team

While the team is confident they will make up some ground in the points standings, it will not be an easy task.

"The e3 spark plug modified class is very competitive. There are a lot of tough tractors and drivers, anyone can win on any night. We are excited for the next Lucas Oil Champions Tour event at Wilmington and would like to thank team sponsors iON camera, E3 Sparkplugs, All American Clothing, and Ag Protect 1," Barga said.

The Judge Pulling Team currently holds 8th place in the points standings. They resume competition at the Clinton County Fairgrounds in Wilmington, OH Saturday June 14th.

The All American Man

The All American Man: Part 2

Monroe, LA (from KNOE News) - Greg Gulyas has a heart full of red, white, and blue as a made in USA supporter. Known as 'The All American Man,' he is a living example that you can find just about anything that is made in USA with a little extra effort.

And that extra effort does make a difference as KNOE News reports, that if every American spent just $64 a year on USA made items, more than 200,000 new jobs would be created.

'The All American Man' is certainly doing his part to support new jobs!

The All American Clothing Co. would like to thank 'The All American Man' for wearing our USA made jeans and clothing items in this video.

Looking great Greg!
