For decades Eaton has been manufacturing products in the United States and those product offerings are expanding to include Eaton's "Assembled in the U.S.A." TAA compliant product line. These new "Assembled in the U.S.A." products are designed to be used in a wide range of government applications, including schools, courthouses, libraries and state facilities.
Like businesses, governmental entities continue to grow more dependent on digital infrastructure. Ensuring that the public services sector has an uninterrupted supply of clean, efficient and reliable power is critical. Providing protection from power failures will help ensure the integrity of vital services and information that the public relies on.
TAA refers to the Trade Agreements Act (19 U.S.C. & 2501-2581), which is intended to foster fair and open international trade. TAA requires that the U.S. Government may acquire only “U.S. – made or designated country end products. This act requires that contractors must certify that each end product meets the applicable requirements. End products are ‘those articles, materials and supplies to be acquired for public use’.” This includes items which have been “substantially transformed” in the United States.
Eaton’s TAA compliant products are assembled in the U.S.A and are approved to be acquired by the United States Government for use. These products are also compliant with GSA Schedules.
