Standing proud as a family-owned and Trenton, N.J.-based company for 75 years, Griffith Electric Supply aims to support manufacturers creating products in the United States through the launch of its “Powered by America” initiative. The program encourages Griffith Electric customers to purchase “Made in USA” electrical and construction products from within their inventory of supplies. Powered by America already has a number of sponsors “pledging their allegiance” to the program, including Arlington Industries, Bridgeport Fittings, Cooper B-Line, Crescent/Stonco (a Philips company), Eaton/Cutler Hammer, Erico-Caddy, General Cable, Hoffman, Hubbell Lighting, Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems, Ideal, Leviton, Lutron, Milwaukee Tools, Osram Sylvania, RAB Lighting, Siemens, Simkar, Southwire, Thomas & Betts and TPI Corp.
“As a proud and hard-working family company, we understand what goes into running a successful business,” said Griffith Electric president, Bill Goodwin, in a press release. “Powered by America is designed to support other U.S. companies and individuals, like us, that are proud of their country and want to see it prosper competitively once again. In so many ways, Powered by America has the opportunity to shape positive growth for our country,” said Goodwin. “We salute American manufacturers and encourage our country's loyalty to them.”
