Some of the "household name" products that they produce include... Raid, OFF!, Windex, Glade, Ziplock, KIWI, Kit, Grand Prix, Black Magic, Pledge, Fantastic, Edge, Shout, Drano, Baygon, Scrubbing Bubbles, Saran, and many more. Who doesn't have one or more of these products in their house right now?

Versa Valves is near me (big plastic valves for swimming pools etc.).

Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce just ceased production in Fair Lawn, NJ and went to "Heinz-land".
Repurposing the building involved ridding the anchovy smell. I never smelled anything exit that plant.

I believe Manson tape (Paterson, NJ) is still being marketed.

PERSONAL NOTE: A friend's son bought a car from a lady who worked at the Ben & Jerry's plant in So. Burlington, VT.
There's a freezer case in the office's waiting room.
Can anyone guess what's in it?

Vermeer is a global company manufacturing almost all of its products in Pella Iowa. Pella Windows has some factories spread around but for the most part is Iowa based.

I almost forgot Blue Bunny ice cream. Not a global brand but national at least and made in Iowa.

I guess a true global company with a small home base would be Cargill. It is still a private family owned company based out of Minnesota.

Decker's which is the parent company of Ugg has it's headquarters about a mile from my house. Habit burger and Kinko's both originated in Isla Vista which is within spitting distance from my house. Seymour Duncan also has its headquarters in Goleta. Direct Relief International is headquartered here as well, they are go default charity on Amazon Smile. My family moved here from Cape Canaveral to work at Aero Spacelines and build the Guppy planes.

For anyone who lives in the Oilville/Richmond, VA area my aunt Donna and uncle Tom are the founders of TKL Products which are one of the largest manufacturers of musical instrument cases.

Modine Manufacturing Company, since 1916 in Racine, WI. (still headquartered there where it does all of it's R&D and testing).
Arthur B. Modine of Racine patented the Spirex radiator, the concentric oil cooler (used in virtually ALL automatic transmission equipped vehicles), the donut oil cooler, Beta-Weld technology, PF (parallel flow) condenser/heat-exchanger, and the Alfuse chemical process (a means of fusing aluminum to aluminum used to produce condensers). Modine was the largest radiator manufacturer in the world at one time and was the main radiator supplier to Ford, AMC, IHC, Caterpillar, Deere, M-F, and CASE for many years. They currently design and manufacture heat transfer products for a wide variety of applications and markets (big into HVAC and refrigeration products these days) and have manufacturing facilities located around the world.
