Ever wonder how the ball gets inside a whistle? We invite you to take a personally guided tour of our factory. American Whistle Corporation is the only manufacturer of metal whistles in the United States. For approximately 45 minutes, we will show you a thriving, small, American manufacturing plant and entertain you with interesting information about whistles. You will see some fascinating machinery – some state-of-the-art, some dating back to the beginning of the company. Best of all – everyone leaves with a shiny new whistle! All ages are welcome on the tour, from pre-schoolers to senior citizens. On the tour you will: * See the factors of production, beginning with the process of manufacturing a whistle from raw material to shipping packaged products to our customers. * See mechanical engineering at work in one-of-a-kind machines designed and built specifically for our exact manufacturing needs. * Learn who buys whistles and why, and how an obscure, yet fundamental product is successfully marketed.
