Viking Announces List of Products that Comply with the Buy American Act Provisions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation
Hastings, Michigan – The Viking Corporation announced today a list of domestically manufactured products available for reference when handling jobs that require domestic end products under the Buy American Act provisions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation. The new list includes product descriptions and part numbers for customer convenience and is audited to ensure the most accurate information is available to contractors. Customers can access the product information on Viking's new Buy American Act Sourcing Tool.
Under the Buy American Act, end products that consist wholly or predominantly of iron and/or steel are domestic for the purposes of the BAA if the cost of domestic iron or steel (excluding COTS fasteners) is greater than 95% of the cost of all components.
Customers can confidently purchase Viking products knowing exactly which ones are domestic end products. “We felt that with the large amounts of stimulus money hitting the industry, this topic was more important than ever before,” remarks James Golinveaux, Viking’s President and CEO. “We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to get the products they need for their jobs.”
