The White House Invites Revision to Participate in “Made in America” Roundtable
Revision Military, a world leader in military and tactical solutions and protective equipment, was one of twelve companies invited to participate in the “Made in America” roundtable held in the East Room of the White House last Wednesday July 19th. Revision CEO Jonathan Blanshay and Revision Senior Director, Legal and Government Affairs, Greg Maguire, attended the meeting, which was hosted by President Donald J. Trump. The roundtable was organized as part of Made in America week, itself part of the Administration’s overarching America First initiative, designed to shine a light on companies, organizations, and institutions that are investing in the future of U.S. manufacturing and innovation.
“Revision has been a proud U.S. military supplier for over a decade. In this time, 100% of the equipment sold to the U.S. government has been made in the U.S.” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision Military. “This fact is not just a point of pride; it is a firm commitment to the forces who fight for us all. While many companies across a variety of industries have moved their production and labor forces oversees, Revision has done the opposite, investing millions to advance and grow the company’s U.S. manufacturing. Revision’s U.S. ties run deeper today than ever before, with the vast majority of our employees working in the U.S.”

“We’re here today to continue our celebration of American manufacturing as part of Made in America week,” said President Donald Trump at the start of the roundtable. “The leaders and innovators around this table create products that fill our homes, defend our nation and enrich our lives. And each one of these products proudly carries the label ‘Made in the USA’…Made in America is more than a label or a product…it’s a stamp of excellence.” President Trump added, “Around the world the Made in America label is the gold standard for craftsmanship, quality and artistry, and that is one more reason we have to protect it.”
Revision has seen first-hand the degree to which the Made in the USA quality is coveted in the international market, not only through demand for Revision made products, but also with widespread proliferation of imitation Revision products. The company has worked to combat these counterfeit operations with multiple sting operations at tradeshows and testifying before a U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee in April 2016.
Revision develops and delivers purpose-built protective soldier equipment for military use worldwide. The company, which began with eyewear, has expanded to face, head and torso protection as well as energy storage and power management products, continues to develop innovative capabilities for integrated, performance-enhancing soldier systems. To that end, Revision brings together the most advanced expertise, state-of-the-art facilities and finest technical minds. Privately owned and ISO 9001:2008 certified, Revision’s operational headquarters is located in Essex Junction, Vermont, USA, with additional offices in Montreal and Ottawa, Canada, The UK, and Luxembourg.
