American Made for ARRA-Funded Projects

American Made Welding Wire and FluxBuy America is a regulation that requires the use of U.S. made products for projects funded by the U.S. Government and procurements made directly by the U.S. Government agencies or the military. Buy America requires that welding consumables made from steel are made with steel melted and manufactured in the United States. The structural industry, specifically bridge construction, is the most common industry segment to require projects meet the Buy America Act. However, any project related to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) is also required to meet Buy America. Lincoln Electric is committed to providing our customers with quality products that meet the Buy America requirements.

Lincoln Electric has many Buy America eligible products available in stock and is capable of making the following industry-leading products to meet the requirements of Buy America. Please contact a Lincoln Electric sales representative for details about how to order Buy America products.
