CLEAN YOUR GRILL COOL, STOP WASTING FUEL 94 million: number of U.S. households with at least one grill. 54 million: number of U.S. households with at least one gas grill. 3 billion: number of annual gas grill outs in the U.S. 325 million: gallons of fuel wasted annu- ally in the U.S. as a result of the 15- minute "burn-off." 87 million: number of 20LB LP grill cylinders wasted annually in the U.S. as a result of the 15-minute "burn-off." Are you familiar with the "burn-off" approach to cleaning a gas grill? This is when one leaves the grill "on" for an extra period of time (15 minutes, on aver- age) in order to "burn-off" the residue remaining on the BBQ grill's cooking surface as a result of the most recent grill use. The overwhelming majority of gas grill owners in the U.S. use the "burn- off" method because it's easy. It's also an extremely irresponsible use of one the Earth's most precious resources – fossil fuels. More importantly, it doesn't really "clean" your grill. The complete line of Weber Cleaners includes Weber Grate Grill Cleaner and Weber Grate Grill Scrubber for the interior surfaces of your grill. Weber Exterior Grill Cleaner for keeping the exterior surfaces clean and protected and the Weber Stubborn Stain Remover for those hard to remove stains. Weber Stainless Steel Polish is perfect for keeping your stainless steel surfaces shining like new. Weber Cleaners have enjoyed con- tinued sales growth across multiple chan- nels since being introduced. From national retailers to small Mom and Pop locations, the Weber Cleaners line of products have continued to increase year over date sales and provide a great opportunity for return shopping purchase visits. Available as an inline item or in a number of point-of-purchase configurations, there are a number of options available for every retailer. Weber Cleaners have been devel- oped to provide safe and sustainable total grill cleaning solutions. Your investment is protected and the life of your grill is prolonged.

HOW GENTENT SAFETY CANOPIES HELPS STIMULATE THE U.S. ECONOMY When people think of manufacturing, they typically do not think of the U.S. Over the last several decades, it has become the accepted norm, the contem- porary wisdom that manufacturing any high volume product should be done out- side the U.S.A. However, one company, GenTent Safety Canopies, is proving this wrong. Case-in-point: One of the company's suppliers, with textile factories both in the U.S.A. and in China, offered their China-made fabric, citing its cost advan- tages. However, when GenTent posed the question, "If GenTent continues to grow, and we purchase only U.S.-made textiles from you, what effect will it have on your business?" it was clear the company gained a business partner. The manufac- turer will have to hire more U.S. workers. With a high textile quality, fair cost and ample material supply – why not invest in U.S. jobs? After taking GenTent 3D CAD mod- els to a half dozen injection molding companies in the U.S.A., some of which are owned by foreign companies, several encouraged GenTent to have the mold done in China. Although they cited lower manufacturing costs as the stimulus, the company found competitive rates and the best execution in the U.S. GenTent's selected U.S. injection mold part supplier was able to quote manufacturing require- ments within 24 hours and modified the CAD models for optimal molding quality and yield. In addition, its quote was substan- tially competitive with the perceived lower manufacturing rates with the "cheaper in China" estimate GenTent received. Needless to say, it became GenTent's manufacturer of choice. Precedent has been set and GenTent continues to fulfill its manufacturing requirements in the U.S. using vinyl welding technology to seal the GenTent product and eliminate hand-sealing oper- ations. Through the help of a textile industry expert, GenTent was introduced to a company manufacturing high vol- umes of large tents, accessories and apparel with a large U.S. warehouse and integrated fulfillment process. Because of its U.S. location, the company quickly learned GenTent's requirements and proved to the compa- ny that once again, Made in the U.S.A. means no compro- mising on quality. Today, GenTent maintains many strong relationships with U.S.-based manufacturing companies. As it contin- ues to grow, its supply chain has expand- ed to include companies from N.H., Mass., R.I., Wis., Ill., Ohio and Va. Its growing business helps to employ hun- dreds of U.S. workers that in turn help to stimulate the economy, and the company anticipates more growth. Imagine thinking it crazy not to con- sider manufacturing products in the U.S.A. GenTent is proof that a quality product can be manufactured in the U.S.A. and still deliver above average consumer value. Visit GenTent at booth #5140, or visit online at www.gentent.com.
