Congress passed the Buy American Act in 1933 in response to the Great Depression to give preference for American-made goods in the federal government’s procurement process.
The Buy American Act restricts the purchase of non-domestic supplies. This act applies to federal government contracts for products used in the US. The act states that the cost of domestic components must exceed 50 percent of the total cost of components in the final product.
Lumetta has continually complied with the Buy American Act and has firmly supported American jobs for over 30 years. We’re proud to have a manufacturing facility located in Warwick, RI–producing lighting solutions that are 100% complaint with the Buy American Act.
