Portland, OR – June 2, 2015 – Panther Co. is a start up supply brand based out of Portland, Oregon. The maker collective company is paving the way to remove the barrier between production and customer. All products are made in America with quality materials and a blue collar work ethic. In order to fund their initial line of Panther Brand American made goods, purchase 3rd party inventory, complete their retail buildout, the company has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $15,000 by June 29th, 2015.
Their motto is “Made by the people, for the people, with the people.” They are taking a stand and bringing back domestic manufacturing to the United States. Between 2000 and 2011, the majority of the manufacturing companies have relocated overseas, which has left hundreds of thousands of people out of work. Brands that were once American made have lost their quality and their personal connection to consumers. This is why Panther Co. feels the need to change this.
The company offers high quality American made goods and will also stock other quality brands from around the US. Panther Co. has an open and transparent production model so that consumers know exactly how their products are made. They will offer free coffee, beer, and whiskey to customers, and encourage them to engage with the makers while they are making products. This brings back the personal connection customers will have with their products, and creates a high amount of accountability for production.
“The way we are going to regain a positive reputation in American manufacturing is two-fold. First aspect is producing goods in house with quality materials. The second is even more vital – community. From experience, we at Panther realized how important relationships between maker and consumer are We want to give you quality products and establish a partnership that will leave a lasting impression.” – Panther Co.
