Made in America: Renewing our Promise to the American Worker

Labor Day is a time of picnics and celebration; remembrance and gratitude.  Living in the US we have so much to be thankful for, and sometimes it can be all too easy to take things for granted.  One thing we can never forget though is the American spirit.  It binds us together, giving us the strength to overcome the trials our country has had to face.

Born out of the Depression, SentrySafe was established in 1930.  Money, hope and spirit were scarce then, but the resilience of the American people saw us through those harsh economic times.  It’s a history SentrySafe is proud to have been a part of.  We struggled beside other manufacturers and came out with an American workforce as strong as the steel we use to make our safes.

Times are once again uncertain for the American manufacturer.  As cheaper goods from outside the US threaten the integrity of the US manufacturer, the American workforce once again finds itself looking for steady work.  We’ve watched jobs dwindle and corporate giants fall, but we believe that hope once again lies within the hearts of the American people. By coming together and supporting each other, the American workforce can once again rise stronger than anyone ever thought possible.

SentrySafe renewed our promise to help support US jobs when we closed our plant in Shanghai, China last year.  And we continue to look for more ways to expand our US manufacturing facilities and grow our local workforce.  This Labor Day we’re asking you to renew your promise as well.

Help support our American workforce.  Just by looking for American made products for the goods you buy every day, you can help grow and strengthen our great nation’s workforce, making it easier for local companies like ours to bring jobs home to the US.  We know it’s not always the cheapest and easiest option, but together, we can overcome these economic hurdles and support a strong, independent American workforce.

The Strength to Begin Again

We don’t  like to think about it, but a disaster can happen to any one of us.  It did for the McDermott family.  When Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast, it left a path of destruction in its wake.  In Breezy Point, NY the McDermott home was one of over 100 that were completely destroyed.  As Rosemary McDermott searched the debris, she looked for something that would bring her mother comfort at such a hard time.  It was then they came across a charred box.  And inside “something salvageable out of absolutely nothing.”

Inside the SentrySafe file was Rosemary’s family genealogy, a project her mother had taken years of care to complete.  And she knew when she had found something that would make her mother so happy that something could be saved from their former life.

It’s a promise we make with every safe we sell.  That should the worst happen, you’ll have what you need to get through it.  Whether it’s documents that are hard to replace, or the photographs and memories that will bring you comfort at this difficult time, we’ll keep them safe.  It’s a tragedy to lose everything, but when you own a SentrySafe you don’t really lose it all.  You still have the pictures from your wedding, your daughter’s first drawing and the insurance papers you’ll need to start fresh.  But most importantly you know you and your family will have the strength to begin again.
