Fox River, America’s Longest Lasting Sock (proudly made in the USA since 1900), makes the socks that will be featured on the National Cable TV Production called Manufacturing Marvels® on Monday, November 4, 2013 on The Fox Business Network® between 8:30 and 8:44 p.m. CST.

The Fox River segment will showcase the company’s facility located in Osage, Iowa and spotlight the company’s brand, its quality products and its commitment to manufacturing in the USA.
