SHERRILL — The Sherrill Manufacturing company and its Liberty Tabletop brand on Monday will participate in a Made in America Product Showcase at the White House that will be hosted by President Donald Trump, the company announced.

Sherrill Manufacturing/Liberty Tabletop plans to showcase American-made flatware and other tabletop items sold on their libertytabletop.com website, according to company co-founder and CEO Gregory L. Owens. Flatware includes knives, forks and spoons.

Trump will “host companies from across the country to celebrate and highlight each state’s effort and commitment to American-made goods,” according to the company announcement.

Businesses from all 50 states have been invited to display their products made and produced in the U.S., the announcement noted. Owens and Sherrill Manufacturing President and co-founder Matthew A. Roberts will be involved with the event.

The event will include the South Lawn and State Floor at the White House, the announcement added.

It is the second annual Made in America week event, Owens said.

Owens and Roberts in June 2017 met Trump at a White House Made in America Round Table discussion where they were invited with several other domestic manufacturers.

Sherrill Manufacturing says it is the only remaining flatware manufacturer in the U.S.

It was formed by Owens and Roberts in 2005, in conjunction with their acquisition of flatware manufacturing assets from the onetime Oneida Ltd. company that was based in Oneida and Sherrill. Owens and Roberts both were former Oneida Ltd.
