As many of you are aware of the Covid-19 relief packages available, the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) is really helping a lot of small businesses in the United States. If you have received your application or loan authorization and agreement you will see the requirements for use of loan proceeds and receipts. One of these requirements is, “Borrower will, to the extent feasible, purchase ONLY American-made equipment and products with the proceeds of this Loan.” Patriot Fluid Power is an authorized distributor of many Made in the USA products. We can help you fulfill your requirements for the use of funds with the EIDL loan.
Why Buy American Made?It supports our economy by creating jobs for our friends and neighbors, even yourself! When you purchase American made products, you are investing money into our economy which grows the manufacturing sector. As a result, more opportunities are created for our friends and neighbors to provide for their families. It also builds a better society for the present and future.
There are so many benefits to American manufacturing. Making products in the United States helps to create a cleaner environment by being more cost effective, saving energy on the delivery, and less pollutive gases are emitted. When products are shipped overseas, a lot of greenhouse gases are discharged and manufacturing in America would then not require for those boats to travel.
Another bonus to manufacturing in the U.S. is that the standards are generally higher than those in other countries, therefore, the quality of the products is typically better. Specifically, the working conditions are better in America, which helps give workers more time and space to do their best work and results in higher quality products. An added benefit that comes of this is that the longevity of the product becomes increased.
