Lately, it has become increasingly harder to find quality, American made items in this country. Cheaper manufacturing prices over-seas means bigger profits for companies at home. With so much production happening outside our own country, the news that Google Glass will reportedly be made in America makes us giddy with delight!
According to a report from The Financial Times, Google will be manufacturing Google Glass headsets at a Foxconn plant in Santa Clara, California. This is a real public relations win on Google’s part, thanks to all the coverage of Apple’s manufacturing practices and the problems workers face in manufacturing facilities over-seas. In a sense, Google is sending the message that it believes in American manufacturing so much that it’s willing to bet its biggest product launch ever on it.
Only a few thousand Glass devices are expected to be manufactured in the coming weeks, though that might change once Google announces its full launch plans. It is also unclear if Google will keep making the headsets in the United States. However, with everything being made in China anymore, we have to say we appreciate Google for taking the steps to keep their technology at home.
