As an end-to-end American sheet metal fabrication, finishing and integration leader, EVS Metal is proud to operate two International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)-registered manufacturing facilities: Keene, New Hampshire and Pflugerville, Texas, just outside of Austin.
ITAR registration is approved by the U.S. State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). The U.S. Government requires all of its contracted manufacturers, exporters and brokers of defense articles, services or technical data to be ITAR compliant. Registration allows EVS to submit bids and subsequently operate as a manufacturer of defense articles for the United States Government and its authorized subcontractors.
“As an American company, and experts in our field, we are honored to be able to assist our government in meeting its defense manufacturing needs,” stated Joe Amico, Vice President and co-founder of EVS Metal. “Knowing that with our work we are contributing to something much bigger than ourselves is incredibly rewarding.”
Enacted in 1976 during the Cold War, ITAR is primarily a means to provide the U.S. Government with necessary information on which companies are involved with certain manufacturing and exporting activities. ITAR regulations cover many different aspects of manufacturing, but the most important edict that must be followed is ensuring that all information and material related to U.S. defense and military-related technologies is only shared with U.S. Persons unless otherwise authorized by the Department of State.
