Our Standard for U.S. Origin

Assembled in the U.S. with a Majority of U.S. Content

Alltham’s goal is to offer our customers a wide selection of products with American quality, safety, durability and design.  We therefore seek to limit our offering to products that are predominantly of U.S. origin -- that is, each product has its principal assembly and final transformation in the United States, with more than 50% U.S. content. 

More specifically, we include products that meet the following standard:  

The product’s last substantial transformation occurred in the United States A “substantial transformation” is a manufacturing or other process that results in a new and different article of commerce, having a new name, character and use that is different from that which existed prior to the processing;

The product was assembled in the United States, and this assembly is the product’s principal assembly and it is substantial (A "screwdriver" assembly in the U.S. of foreign components into a final product at the end of the manufacturing process does not qualify as having been assembled in the U.S.); and

A majority (more than 50%) of the manufacturing cost of the product is attributable to U.S. inputs (“Manufacturing cost” consists of manufacturing materials, direct manufacturing labor, and manufacturing overhead).    

Made in the USA

Many of the products we offer also meet the legal requirements for being labeled “Made in USA’; that is, the product is "all or virtually all" made in the United States.  These legal requirements can be summarized as follows:

The product’s last “substantial transformation” occurred in the United States (A “substantial transformation” is a manufacturing or other process that results in a new and different article of commerce, having a new name, character and use that is different from that which existed prior to the processing);

The final assembly or processing of the product takes place in the United States; and

All significant parts and processing that go into the product are of U.S. origin and it contains, at most, only a negligible amount of foreign content. (“Parts” refers to all physical inputs into a product, including but not limited to subassemblies, components, parts, or materials.) 

When our suppliers identify products as meeting this standard, we seek to also provide that information to you. 

Certification by Suppliers; Reporting Potentially Deceptive Claims

We seek to assure that each product appearing on our website meets these standards for U.S. content.  However, Alltham.com cannot verify the U.S.-origin claims for each of the products appearing on our web site, and we must rely on manufacturers’ certifications in this regard.  We also have created a mechanism for consumers to report potentially deceptive claims, by contacting us at UScontentclaims@allthampbc.com.
