Kuma Stoves chosen to attend Made in America event at White House

A North Idaho company will visit the White House on Monday as part of President Trump’s Made in America Product Showcase.

One manufacturing company from each state was chosen to attend the event and Kuma Stoves in Rathdrum was selected to represent Idaho.

Kuma, which KXLY featured in February on Made in the Northwest, has been in business for nearly 40 years. It sells about 1,500 stoves a year to more than 160 dealers across the county.

President Mike Freeman believes part of the reason his business is thriving is because its products are Made in the U.S.A.

“We’re not just building here in Idaho, but we’re also sourcing U.S. Materials,” said Freeman.

In a White Press release last week, President Trump said, “On Made in America Day and during Made in America Week, we celebrate the importance of American manufacturing, construction, agriculture, mining, and entrepreneurship to our Nation’s prosperity and economic vitality. Made in America products represent the global gold standard for quality, innovation, and craftsmanship and the output of a highly skilled workforce that is second to none.”

Jason Freeman and Jack Freeman of Kuma Stoves will attend the Made in American Product Showcase. They’ll showcase one of the company’s signature Ashwood model stoves during the event.
