Obama Cites Northeast Building Products in the State of the Union Address
  Jan. 28th, 2010


In last week's State of the Union, President Barack Obama highlighted Northeast Building Products as an example of how the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act has created jobs.

Defending the 2009 stimulus package, Obama said, "Economists on the left and the right say this bill has helped save jobs and avert disaster. But you don't have to take their word for it." After pointing to a business in Phoenix, he then said, "Talk to the window manufacturer in Philadelphia who said he used to be skeptical about the Recovery Act, until he had to add two more work shifts just because of the business it created."

The White House learned about his company initially from a report in the Philadelphia Inquirer last September, looking at stimulus spending, states Alan Levin, Northeast Building Products' president and CEO. His company had supplied windows for a Philiadelphia Housing Authority project that had used stimulus funds, which played a role in expanding his workforce. About two weeks after the newspaper article had appeared, he continues, the White House called to verify the facts.

Levin received another call from the White House, right before the State of the Union address to get his permission to mention his comments. After the speech, Northeast Building Products received more calls from media outlets, including CNN and the local CBS affiliate, both which interviewed him about the impact of the stimulus package on the window manufacturer. The local report can be viewed online.

Although the initial story in the Philadelphia Inquirer points to the impact of stimulus-funded weatherization projects, Levin attributes most of the increase in business at his company to the energy efficient window tax credits.
