In the 1950s more than 90 companies made television sets in the US, but they shut down their plants decades ago.

One manufacturing company is now hoping to change that and has recently opened a plant in Detroit, Michigan.

Element Electronics moved an assembly line from Asia to build some of its larger televisions using local manufacturing know-how.

Labour costs are higher in the country, but Element says lower tariffs and transportation costs mean making TVs in US once again makes economic sense.
