America First 2016 Trade Show and
Products Expo to Be Held on November 9th, 2016.
In 1965, manufacturing accounted for 53% of the domestic
economy; by 2004 it was down to 9%. Between February 2001 and
February 2016, the United States lost two thirds of the
remaining manufacturing jobs. In addition, manufacturing
employment has declined by tens of thousands of jobs in the past
month alone. The gravity of these facts has not escaped Solco
Plumbing Supply, a New York City-based plumbing supply
distributor, who is taking action to spread awareness about the
decline in domestic manufacturing.
On Wednesday, November 9th, 2016, Solco will host "America First
2016," a trade show focusing exclusively on American made
plumbing products. Solco will bring over 300 trade plumbers,
developers, architects and designers together with over 50 of
America's leading plumbing and heating manufacturers. Kohler,
Delta, Charlotte Pipe and Elkay Manufacturing are just a few
among the many American manufacturers that have committed to
support this function. These companies represent the finest,
most recognized lineup of domestic manufacturing in the plumbing
supply industry. They have a story to tell, and Solco wants to
help them tell it.

The event will be held
at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, on Wednesday, November
9th, 2016 between the hours of 5:00pm - 8:00pm. At the America First
2016 trade show, customers will have an opportunity to get to know
America's manufacturers and what they stand for.
In addition to bringing customers and vendors together, Solco will
be celebrating American manufacturing by giving away several raffle
prizes, all of which are made in America.
Solco Plumbing Supply is a 60-year-old family-owned plumbing supply
with locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.
