The Detroit Auto Show has come and gone, and now that the curtain has been lifted on Ford’s aluminum-based 2015 F-150 trucks, mainstream pundits are looking at the impact of aluminum on the auto industry. Bloomberg TV dedicated an entire segment to this topic, and you can see the whole video here.

Some highlights include:

  • The fact that the aluminum body makes the F-150 700 lbs less.
  • Audi has been using aluminum for more than 20 years.
  • The F-150 is “the most important” unveiling of the year.

Now that the public has seen the F-150, dealerships are considering the logistics of this new model, particularly the repair. More on that in the coming weeks.

Made in America: The American Consumer

2015-06-18T15:33:39+00:00February 7th, 2012|

Time.com recently published an article claiming that products made in America are experiencing a comeback with American consumers.

The article sites a study released last week by J.D. Power and Associates which shows a rise in Americans who are loyal to U.S. car manufacturers, as well as a study by the Harrison Group and American Express, which indicates that 65% of high-end shoppers now prefer to buy American.

According to the article, “it’s unclear whether shoppers are showing a preference for American products because they believe they are of superior quality, or because they feel it’s important to support American manufacturing, or some mix of the two.”

Taber Extrusions is proud to be an all-American company, and encourages you to buy American products and services.
