Be American Made

Celebrating American-made products and those that produce them.

Gulf Wave

We love companies that produce products for very specific markets. There are so many out there that we’ll never get to them all. However, today we will get to Gulf Wave products. Gulf Wave manufactures custom material handling equipment and fabrication tables right here in the United States. Specifically in Indianapolis, Indiana. It’s not only the professionals who use equipment like this either. Some of us like to tinker on our own small fabrication projects and we can personally attest to the helpfulness of having the proper equipment when doing so. Continue reading

We love camping and just generally being outside and experiencing nature. In a perfect world we’d be doing this all year round from the comfort of either an RV of some type. When we reach that point we’ll be sure to look at what Jayco has to offer. Jayco manufactures the majority of their products from their home in Middlebury, Indiana.
