The Buy American Act and Delta

In today’s global economy, the supply chain for manufactured products has become increasingly complex. So what does it mean to be "Made in America" today? The U.S. government defines American-made products in the Buy American Act (BAA), and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulates "Made in USA" claims in advertising and marketing.

The Buy American Act was enacted in 1933 to give preference for American-made goods in the federal government’s procurement process. And the Buy American provision of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was designed to protect American workers by saving and creating jobs. We couldn’t agree more with this objective.

Delta is proud to offer over 4,500 products that are compliant with the Buy American Act. In fact, one hundred percent of Delta DIAMOND™ Seal Technology faucets are assembled in Jackson, Tennessee, and 253 million product components are manufactured/purchased annually from domestic vendors.

Delta Faucet Company was founded in Greensburg, Indiana in 1954 and remains tied to its Midwestern roots today. Delta Faucet calls Indianapolis home for its global headquarters, featuring state of the art engineering and technology facilities and an award winning product design team responsible for designing our vast and dynamic product offering. Delta Faucet is also proud to operate multiple manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and employ over 1,300 U.S.-based employees across the country.

A plumbing company that stands beside-and inside-the USA. Another way Delta is more than just a faucet.
