STILL MADE IN AMERICA
The Story of Robert Slass and his Contribution to US Manufacturing
This book portrays Rotor Clip as a U.S. manufacturing company that spanned the very era when manufacturing was supposed to be dying in this country. Despite the gloomy predictions, Rotor Clip is not only still standing, but thriving. It is also a tribute to our founder, Robert Slass, and to the very qualities of innovation and entrepreneurship that he exemplified as part of our country’s manufacturing culture.
The book highlights careers that a young person could pursue in manufacturing, involving the same technology and innovation we equate with hi-tech companies. Jobs in manufacturing today are not the boring, monotonous ones that our grandfathers performed. Rather, they are career paths, requiring higher level skills as well as manual dexterity that can be very satisfying and rewarding.
