AVPro’s American Manufacturing Initiative
This past Summer, AVPro sent shockwaves through the Commercial A/V industry by announcing the first steps on a path to manufacturing products in the United States would begin later this year. At that time, the factory, notably the former AVPro headquarters location in Sioux Falls, SD, had already undergone extensive remodeling and was housing a majority of the machinery ordered from Yamaha that will fabricate circuit board substrates and perform component parts insertion. Through the ensuing months, the line was completed and production test runs demonstrated failure-free precision with pre-production models.
TAA Compliance and the AVPro Revolution
Of paramount importance for making this capital-intensive investment was to skillfully craft products on these shores for compliance with the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), passed by Congress in 1979 and designed to limit US Government entities to US-made products (or products made in countries designated as fair trade partners). As you may be aware, we have a manufacturing partner, MTEA, in Shenzhen, CHN. Our collaboration has been fantastic, and it has markedly helped to fuel our success but has restricted our selling partners from soliciting GSA Schedule contracts with our video distribution products. Fabricating select, AVPro models from raw parts to final assembly in our hometown is the “pinch me” dream that eliminates that roadblock.
Expanding Horizons: AVPro’s MXNet TAA-Compliant Products
In early 2024, we will begin shipping US versions of MXNet 1G encoders and decoders, the MXNet 10G TCVR, and AC-EX40-444/ AC-EX70-444 kits that exceed TAA compliance requirements. Commercial integrators accustomed to doing business via GSA Schedule contracts will soon have new opportunities to expand the MXNet footprint into installations from which they were previously excluded. All of us at AVPro are proud to know that our company will be among a limited number of American-based manufacturers able to declare TAA compliance, and more so for the impact this will have on the Sioux Falls economy.
