Dear Carrot-Top Customers,
Carrot-Top Industries has been a unique and special place for 35 years. We are 100% locally owned and operated and are proud that most of our supplies and resources are made in the USA. Prior to starting the company, I worked with a large health organization in the Midwest and saw that it failed to reach those it intended to help. It slowly became apparent to me that to really reach people I need to do something different, something more. In those early years, working out of my house, I had two primary goals. One goal was to provide flags and patriotic products to businesses, schools and organizations while the second goal was to do business in a way that incorporated recycling into the company’s daily fabric and the products our company sold (as much as possible). I am more than pleased that Carrot-Top and its employees continue to go out of their way to recycle waste and promote eco-friendly products.
35 years sounds like a long time but the years have been filled with so many different events that it seems difficult to believe so much time has passed. Our partnerships with customers, businesses, schools and towns have been so fulfilling and that I’m increasingly inspired to provide better products and serve our customers in even greater ways. Events like 9/11 shook me terribly. The horrific tragedy and its aftermath not only destroyed our sense of security but it also shook our economy. Massive layoffs all over the country followed, but Carrot-Top stood firm and survived. I’m especially proud that Carrot-Top, and our American flags, were and are a part of our nation’s healing process. Our customers, once again, revealed America’s true heart with an overwhelming outpouring of patriotism, love, and hope.
Celebrating Carrot-Top’s 35th Anniversary gives me the opportunity to thank so many people who have helped shape the company’s path and growth. I must thank my wife Lynne and our daughters who have given so much of themselves and made so many daily sacrifices. I must also thank our employees who have become a second family and take great care every day to explain our products and assist our customers. And of course, I thank our customers who have taught us that pride and patriotism stand hand in hand with quality and hard work. Carrot-Top is a better and stronger company because of you. Thanks again.
Dwight A. Morris, President
