Leading the Way in Build America, Buy America Standards

Learn how Hydro-Dyne empowers American infrastructure growth as a certified BABA manufacturer.

When you support a BABA compliant manufacturer like Hydro-Dyne you:

Gain eligibility to participate in federally funded projects
Support domestic
industries and suppliers
Follow compliance with
federal requirements (no waivers required!)
Promote sustainable and environmentally-friendly practices
Help create jobs
for American workers
Access more funding opportunities
Maintain a
positive reputation
Ensure quality
and reliability

By adhering to these initiatives, Hydro-Dyne ensures that our customers receive the best possible solutions while supporting domestic industries and creating jobs for American workers.

At Hydro-Dyne, we take pride in being a Build America, Buy America (BABA) compliant manufacturer.

The Build American, Buy America Act (BABA) requires domestic manufacture of iron and steel, manufactured products, and construction materials. This statutorily directs federal funded projects (both under IIJA as well future federal infrastructure funding) to comply with Buy America(n) requirements that were previously largely exempted in the water sector for manufactured products. Under BABA, compliant manufactured products means:
  • The manufactured product was manufactured in the United States, and
  • The cost of the components of the manufactured product that are mined, produced, or manufactured in the United States is greater than 55 percent of the total cost of all components of the manufactured product
