TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)- Most of us have seen or at least heart of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, but many people don't know that a company right here in Tucson actually hand crafts those mugs that you see on her hit show.
After landing several high-end local clients like the Ritz-Carlton and providing dinnerware for the U.S. Navy, Tucson based HF Coors hit big with The Ellen DeGeneres show in August.
Now you can see their coffee cups on her show and website.
Company CEO Dirck Schou said Ellen was looking for an environmentally conscious company that made lead-free products.
"She decided she wanted made in USA mugs, Schou said. "People look for made in USA and inevitably they find us."
Each month the company ships out nearly 200,000 products.
"we make everything from scratch," Schou said. "The materials, the molds and the models."
