The premier episode of Fox Broadcasting’s new “Built in America” television show will feature Cranston, R.I.,-based Taco, Inc. The show’s inaugural episode – which takes a close look at Taco’s dedication to its American employees, manufacturing and the HVAC market it serves – will be broadcast at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 28 on Fox Business Network.
Commentator John Holden takes viewers on a journey into Taco’s history, but moves quickly into the firm’s devotion to its 500-plus employees, with CEO and President John White Jr. declaring that, “With Taco’s workforce, we built this company together.” There is the foundation for Taco’s success and steadfast allegiance to maintaining manufacturing in the U.S.
White adds that: “Others are so quick to move [manufacturing] offshore, but we have a great workforce, country and ideas . . . and with America’s leadership in innovation, it’s only right to sustain our workforce here in the USA.”
“Built in America” also takes a close look at Taco’s new Innovation and Development Center, a state-of-the-art, LEED-Gold, teaching and research laboratory built chiefly to educate and train industry professionals. “We invest deeply in our employees, the industry and our customers,” concluded White.
