“We are opening our doors and making our buyers available to meet with suppliers with one goal in mind: buy more American products,” said Bill Simon, president and CEO of Walmart U.S. “When we buy new products, suppliers hire people to make those products. These American jobs build families and communities, and they help our country thrive. That’s really what our domestic manufacturing commitment is all about.”
Walmart plans to pursue its Made in the USA goals by
• increasing what it already buys of U.S. manufactured goods
• sourcing "new to Walmart" U.S. manufactured goods
• supporting the re-shoring of manufacturing of the goods it currently buys
Simon said Walmart expects to discover new products that it didn't know were out there.
