Vice President Mike Pence is set to visit Southwestern Ohio Thursday for the first time since becoming vice president.

He’ll visit a Springdale company in a private event, going there to talk about health care in an 11:45 a.m. visit, according to reports.

Here are three things to know about that company, Frame USA Inc., and the planned visit.

1. The business prides itself on products made in the U.S.A.

A visit to the picture frame company's web site shows that pride prominently displayed.

The online retailer says it produces more than 3,000 frames a day, using “100 percent” U.S. raw materials with products made “100 percent” in the United States.

“When you buy from us, you don’t just receive outstanding picture frames — you’re supporting American jobs, workers, and economy,” the company says on its Facebook page.

2. The company offers more than frames.

Beyond custom and ready-made frames, Frame USA says it has also offered posters, licensing and art for more than 30 years.

The company also has a regular charitable program. Through this, the business donates a portion of its proceeds towards a “charity of the month.”

75 cents of every order placed through its web site and $1 of every custom order placed through the Springdale store is given to a charity, Frame USA says on its web site.

3. Health care is said to be the topic of the Pence meeting.

Pence on a morning news program Wednesday said nobody will “fall through the cracks” as Republicans try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

But getting the president and Congressional Republicans on the same page on the subject has been challenging.

As of now, no public events in Ohio are scheduled.
