As we have made advancements in industry its become easier to remove ourselves from the many layers that are required to provide us with the things we use and enjoy everyday. We recognize the chefs and farmers that provide us food, the writers and printing presses that supply us with knowledge, and the architects and carpenters that build our shelters. What about those that build the tools and equipment to make that all possible?

For the 10th anniversary of the I Make America campaign, I traveled to six equipment manufacturing factories across the agricultural, mining, construction, and forestry industries to highlight the people and processes that are at the essence of our country.
