JACKSON CENTER, Ohio (AP) — The company that makes Airstream travel trailers will be representing Ohio at a White House showcase of American-made products.

The Sidney Daily News reports the Made in America Product Showcase will be held July 15. The event is in its third year.

A White House official said businesses from all 50 states will be present as Republican President Donald Trump seeks to highlight job creation.

Airstream Inc. is based in Jackson Center, roughly 80 miles (129 kilometers) northwest of Columbus.

The company was founded in 1931. Its 1,000 skilled employees customize Mercedes-Benz touring coaches and hand-build trailers, including the iconic Airstream “silver bullet” travel trailer.

Airstream announced a factory expansion last year.
