In response to your ideas and as a part of our ongoing mission to create jobs in the USA, we are excited to announce that our new Starbucks® Logo Mugs have been designed, sourced and made in the USA. But not just anywhere in the USA. We collaborated with Ulrich Honighausen to open the American Pioneer Manufacturing (APM) factory in the heart of the ceramics community, Waterford Ohio. Because of this collaboration, Ulrich was able to hire over 20 skilled craftsmen who delicately mix the raw materials, create the molds and hand glaze the mugs, one-by-one.
When describing the APM factory, Ulrich explained, “It is a collaboration of shared values between a small company with a dream and a large company with vision and purpose.”
We are proud to not only produce the quality mugs our My Starbucks Idea customers have asked for, but to help bring the Ohio ceramics community back to life.
Thanks for all your great ideas—they really do make a big difference.
