COMMERCE, Calif., Dec. 17, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The FootMate® System by Gordon Brush was selected by CNN as one of the companies where one can buy American made products for the holidays.

In her article, “How to shop made in America for the holidays,” Emanuella Gringberg, CNN staff writer, says “…fewer consumer goods are made in the United States today … but that doesn’t mean American-made products no longer exist.”

“We are honored to be selected by CNN as one of the companies to make the CNN short list for buying American,” said Ken Rakusin, president and CEO of Gordon Brush. “We are in esteemed company with both the established brands and start-ups.”

Rakusin adds, “Promoting American made is vital to the strength, health, and viability of the United States. In an article we published, ‘Proud to be an American Manufacturer,’ Patriotism is paramount at Gordon Brush. Many end users are willing to sacrifice cost over quality, even though in the long run it ends up costing them more because they have to replace sub-standard product more frequently. Even under these competitive threats, Gordon Brush has been steadfast in its philosophy and commitment to manufacturing in the United States.”

The American-made FootMate® System helps make optimal foot health easy. It is a complete foot care system for cleaning, soothing, stimulating, and massaging feet in the shower. The FootMate® System is a brush and specially formulated gel that cleans and massages feet without having to bend over. An after shower cream was added to the line to keep feet soft and supple, day or night. The product is for anyone wanting a soothing, stimulating way to clean and massage their feet. The FootMate® System is the ultimate foot massage and the perfect way to pamper tired, aching feet.
