OSAGE, Iowa — Fox River, a leading U.S. manufacturer of outdoor, work, military, snow, sport and lifestyle performance socks since 1900 and maker of the famous Original Rockford Red Heel Monkey Sock, is scheduled to appear on the new Travel Channel series, ‘Made in America’.
“The sock monkey holds a special place in the heart of American culture,” commented Becky Lessard, Vice President of Monkey Business at Fox River. “Most everyone grew up with a sock monkey, so it’s our pleasure to continue this tradition and introduce the monkey to new generations.”
“We’re proud to be featured on this program, especially in a time when many apparel and outdoor gear brands are sending production overseas,” continued Jeff Lessard. “It’s not just about making great products and providing exceptional value. Fox River takes enormous pride in providing local jobs that support our family, friends and neighbors.”
The “Made in America’ episode was filmed with George Motz at Fox Rivers Mills in Osage, Iowa in June and airs on Tuesday, Nov. 1st at 8:30 p.m. ET and PT.
