Beri J. Fox shows her marble toys in the East Room of the White House, a product of Marble King from West Virginia, Monday, July 15, 2019, at the Made in America Product Showcase event held at the White House.

On July 15, businesses of all sizes from each American state had the honor to showcase their work at the Made in America Product Showcase event held at the White House. This is the third year that the White House has hosted this event where products from all 50 states are put on display and celebrated. While each business is different and unique in their own rights, they all share common grounds in that their products are made in America, as the event title states. One such business representing the state of West Virginia was Paden City’s Marble King.

Beri Fox, president and CEO of Marble King, was enthusiastic about her business being selected. “It’s an honor to be asked to attend,” Fox said. “Everyone at Marble King is very excited with the opportunity to have our Marbles featured We look forward to introducing our marbles to representatives from all 50 states.”

In a press release, a White House official also said, “We were excited to once again host businesses from all 50 states at the White House to highlight and celebrate American-made products…In today’s booming economy, President Trump and his Administration are proud to tout businesses that create jobs and support our local communities.”

The goal of this event is reportedly to create products and businesses within the country, and to foster the growth of such businesses.

“When we purchase products made in the USA, the profits stay here, the revenue stays here, and the jobs – maybe most importantly of all – they stay right here in the USA.” President Donald J. Trump said in a statement released by the White House.
