Buy American Compliance
ALL Manning Lighting products comply with the “Buy American” provisions in Title XVI, Sec. 1605 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The vast majority of our fabricated components are manufactured and assembled into the final product by our skilled employees in our own facility in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Further, all of the other components and subcomponents we use are also made in the U.S. with the exception of some electrical components no longer domestically available and common across the lighting industry (i.e. ballasts, sockets, etc.).
Some companies source all of their parts overseas and claim to “substantially transform” them in the U.S. to comply with the Act. Domestic assembly of components made abroad may comply with the letter of the law, but certainly not the spirit of it. We are proud to say that the design, planning, procurement, fabrication and assembly of our products take place in the United States.
