Vulcana’s line of materials is Berry Compliant

October 31, 2014

What is the Berry Amendment?

The Berry Amendment (USC, Title 10, Section 2533a), requires the Department of Defense to give preference in procurement to domestically produced, manufactured, or home-grown products, most notably food, clothing, fabrics, and specialty metals. Congress originally passed domestic source restrictions as part of the 1941 Fifth Supplemental DOD Appropriations Act in order to protect the domestic industrial base in the time of war.

How does Vulcana’s line of materials comply?

Vulcana certifies that all materials (components and end product) are produced in the USA and are fully compliant with 10 U.S.C. § 2533(a), which requires that items be grown, reprocessed, reused, produced domestically in the United States, and is commonly referred to as “The Berry Amendment”.

Furthermore, all manufacturing, packaging, inspection and shipping operations are completed or performed in the United States.

Will Vulcana provide certification in writing?

Yes, upon request Vulcana will issue a statement to your company confirming our certification.  Please contact one of our reps and they will be happy to assist you.
