P&S Commercial Products are Ideal for Federal Stimulus Projects


SYRACUSE, N.Y. (Oct. 27, 2009) – Legrand/Pass & Seymour, a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, is ready to help electrical contractors win Federal Stimulus projects with its line of trade-agreement-compliant commercial and industrial products. 

With an estimated $52 billion earmarked for electrical-related construction spending in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, known as the economic stimulus program, ensuring the availability of trade-agreement-compliant devices is crucial.

As shown in Legrand/Pass & Seymour’s new Commercial & Industrial Products brochure, the company’s broad range of quality product solutions and ability to meet the provisions of the Buy American Act make Legrand/Pass & Seymour products a preferred choice for government projects.

“With government stimulus spending driving new development, competition will be intense, especially in the fields of education, government, and healthcare,” said Scott Bausch, commercial and industrial product marketing manager at Legrand/Pass & Seymour. “We have a diverse, comprehensive commercial and industrial product offering in receptacles, switches, plates, plugs and connectors.  Pass & Seymour is positioned to meet the criteria for trade-agreement requirements related to stimulus spending.”

Legrand/Pass & Seymour Commercial and Industrial Grade products are designed to offer consistent performance under constant hard use and harsh physical conditions, suitable for healthcare facilities, offices, institutions, entertainment venues and more. They install quickly and easily, allowing more jobs to be completed faster, for better productivity and profitability.
