Purealizer Industries Praises President Biden’s Commitment to Support US Manufacturers
FT. LAUDERDALE, FL. / February 25th, 2021 / Purealizer Industries, a US-based manufacturer of innovative, commercial air purification systems, issued a statement today regarding President Joe Biden’s executive directive for the Federal government to increase its purchases of goods Made in America.
“We applaud President Biden’s executive order to ensure more products be manufactured in the United States. This will enable American manufactures to be more competitive and secure more government contracts”, stated Chief Executive Officer Michael W. Smith. Over the last 30 years more and more companies have outsourced their manufacturing overseas which has hurt small businesses and created an unequal playing field for US based manufacturers.
“As more labor and manufacturing is outsourced of the US the middle class gets hit hardest. The middles class in America is the backbone of our economy and reducing good paying jobs eventually hurting the economy and all Americans, especially the middle class”, said Smith.
Many companies which offshore their manufacturing still make claims of “Made in America” although only a small percentage of the products they supply is actually made in the US. This has been a growing problem for the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to enforce laws which require a certain percentage of a product be made in the US before they can make the claim “Made in the USA”. In President Biden’s executive order, it is expected the new administration will be more proactive in cracking down on false claims of products being 100% American made when substantially all of their products are only partly or completely made outside of the United States.
“We believe American manufactured products can compete in terms of price, innovation and even cost. Our latest product has been designed here and will be manufactured and assembled here,” said Smith. We believe once our new upper-room UVGI air purifier is released will be able to develop significant government business through the GSA purchasing program working with several Veteran-owned government contractors and distributors.”
