Honoring the Fourth of July With U.S. Made Products
In honor of the Fourth of July weekend, we wanted to write a blog that focuses on products manufactured in the USA. What better way to celebrate Independence Day? T&B says it best, “American innovation and hard work produce a current like no other.” When you connect with companies who manufacture in the USA, you connect with American jobs, products and people.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) was signed in 2009 and intended to stimulate the U.S. economy by injecting $787 billion in spending and tax cuts. For federal, state and municipal projects funded by the ARRA, there is a preference for the use of U.S. domestic products. The following companies are all “Buy American” compliant:
While Thomas & Betts has a global operations, their American workforce is more than 4,900 strong! Its U.S. plants produce a wide range of components that improve the transmission and distribution of electrical power. T&B’s Distribution Center, located in one of the top distribution regions in the country, ships 85,000 products a day to keep industry powered up. T&B has manufacturing plants in California, New Mexico, Arizona, Massachusetts and Tennessee.
