FTC: Made In The USA Comments Concerning Spectronics Corporation--P894219
"Made in USA" Policy Comment
September 18, 1997
Office of the Secretary
Re: Comments of Spectronics Corporation
Spectronics Corporation hereby responds to the Federal Trade Commission's request for comments on its proposed "Guides for the Use of U.S. Origin Claims".
Spectronics Corporation, one of the world's leading manufacturers of ultraviolet equipment, is based in Westbury, New York, and employs over 200 people. We believe that it is very important to our customers that our products are entirely U.S. made. Spectronics Corporation strongly opposes the Commission's proposal to weaken the standard for "Made in USA" claims from "all or virtually all" U.S. content to "substantially all" U.S. content. Weakening the standard will lead to consumer deception. It will also deny Spectronics Corporation the marketing advantage attributable to Made in USA products.
Thank you for your consideration.
