August 28, 2014

Iowa City employees head to Atlanta for brand's NASCAR race.

Oral-B employees from Iowa City will celebrate Labor Day weekend with Walmart and thousands of racing fans during the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway in a campaign to showcase the made in the US status of Oral-B’s oral care devices.
Oral-B is partnering with NASCAR driver Ryan Newman at the event.

The majority of Oral-B’s manual toothbrushes, more than 350 million each year, are made in Iowa City with US and imported parts before making their way to Walmart shelves across America.

“It’s awesome to partner with Oral-B for another year to celebrate their commitment to engineer healthier smiles with American pride,” said Newman. “The best part is that the Oral-B manual toothbrush I use every day – the Pro-Health All-in-One - is built in Iowa City, Iowa. You’re directly supporting jobs for people when you buy American-made products, and there’s a lot of pride in that.”
