CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice today commended Marble King, a small business located in Paden City, West Virginia, for being selected to attend the third annual Made in America Product Showcase event, hosted by President Donald J. Trump at the White House in Washington, D.C.
“Marble King is truly a wonderful company, and I’m so excited to have them representing West Virginia at the White House for an event celebrating all of the great things our American manufacturers make across the country,” Gov. Justice said. “We are very proud that Marble King has been able to call West Virginia home for 70 incredible years and they deserve to be recognized for all their hard work over the decades.”
The small business employs a staff of about two dozen workers. Marble King was officially founded in 1949. The company now stands as one of the only remaining marble makers in America, manufacturing more than 1 million marbles every day.
The 2019 Made in America Product Showcase marks the event’s third year. It is a unique opportunity to highlight and celebrate every state’s effort and commitment to American-made products, and a chance to highlight the Administration’s commitment to products that are made in America.
“We are excited to once again host businesses from all 50 states at the White House to highlight and celebrate American-made products,” a White House spokesperson said. “In today’s booming economy, President Trump and his Administration are proud to tout businesses that create jobs and support our local communities.
“Companies attending the Made in America Product Showcase represent a cross-section of industries – from fishing supplies to apparel to furniture and household tools – to showcase the variety of products made in America. President Trump has always, and will continue to, promote American businesses, which is echoed by his Administration’s unprecedented deregulation and historic tax cuts that have led to our thriving National economy.”
