: Harley-Davidson, Inc. Headquarters
: Milwaukee, Wis.
Founded in 1903, Harley-Davidson is an iconic, cult-like American motorcycle company facing stiff foreign competition — think Yamaha and Honda. But the American company actually builds its motorcycles here in the United States. The company has four major factories in the U.S. — two in Wisconsin , one in Missouri and one in Pennsylvania. Many manufacturing executives point to the need to stay competitive when they move work overseas. But Harley-Davidson doesn’t seem to be suffering too much by making its products at home. Shares of the company are up 17 percent over the last year and the company holds about half the market share in the U.S.
