MEP's Buy American Program honored for Keeping it Made in America
Two members of the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP)’s Buy American Program were honored today by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for creating a program that helps American companies meet the needs of federally funded stimulus programs.
According to the MEP, Shannon S. Bowman, Carroll A. Thomas Martin and David C. Stieren were honored with the George A. Uriana award for developing a process that leverages the MEP’s extensive network of manufacturers to examine the U.S. manufacturing landscape. Their work helps in the search for American-made products needed for projects subject to the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act's (ARRA) Buy America provisions.
The MEP’s Program Team designed and implemented a set of processes for the MEP to identify U.S. manufacturers with specific capabilities in order to respond to the needs of stimulus projects.
The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) applauds the MEP for helping manufacturers across the country take advantage of opportunities to supply these projects, and for helping to ensure that more taxpayer dollars are spent on American-made goods.
The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) was proud to partner with the MEP program at their national conference in Orlando, Florida, this past May. While there, we were able to meet with hundreds of American manufacturers. The pride in “Made in America” couldn’t have been greater.
