"The Preamble"

Adopted on July 4th, 1776, the Declaration of Independence would signal a start of a new country that would offer its citizens a new way of life. One where "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights."

Some 118 years later, buoyed by these sacred "unalienable rights" our company's "Founding Fathers", Franz Ranke and George Grueber, founded the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill.

Men by the names of Adams, Franklin, Hamilton, Jay, Jefferson, Madison and Washington wrote the words that allowed men like Ranke and Grueber the freedom to "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."




While the "American Dream" has been achieved by many, some have been left behind. As we celebrate our 244th year of our Country this Independence Day, let us  pause and focus on the introductory statement of the Constitution's guiding principles, The Preamble...

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Let Freedom Ring!
