Right now across the United States, funds for new, energy-friendly construction projects are available through the economic stimulus package, or the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). What's more, the Act's "Buy American" clause – in which projects are to be funded as long as "iron, steel, and manufactured goods used in the project are produced in the United States" (read the entire ARRA here) – is designed to maximize the impact of stimulus dollars on domestic companies and their building projects.

Located in Boxborough, MA, Setra Systems is a leading designer and manufacturer of pressure, acceleration, and weight sensing devices. Setra's Sales and Marketing Director Tiago Anes recently visited us at Alps Controls and explained to Dave Meyers that the company's products available through alpscontrols.com do meet the requirements set forth in the Stimulus package:

US President Herbert HooverAs Tiago mentions in the video, Setra Systems has even gone the extra route of traveling back in time to President Herbert Hoover's Buy American Act. The company analyzed the manufacturing of their products against that 1933 Act's requirements, in which 51% of manufactured products need to have originated from content created in the U.S – and as it turns out, Setra products meet that standard as well.

Somewhere right now, our 31st President must be smiling.
