millions in capital improvements Lee Brass takes great pride in its longstanding reputation for outstanding quality and service. In response to customer marketplace needs, Lee Brass increased capacities and its workforce by more than 25%. This year alone, quality and efficiencies have further been enhanced with a multimilliondollar investment in capital improvements for a new state-of-the art sand system and an additional automated molding center. U. S.-manufactured domestic threaded brass and cast-solder fittings may be purchased from Lee Brass directly or through many of its resellers. The ability to simultaneously pour 12 copper-based alloys combined with modernized machining capabilities has enabled Lee Brass to become a vital supplier to many manufacturers in the plumbing and industrial industries. The expanded workforce at Lee Brass is the result of the increased demand for our lead-free LEE FREE product line. Lee Brass has been a leader in manufacturing lead-free alloy products for more than 40 years. The new federal water safety regulations, which go into effect Jan. 4, 2014, are driving demand for lead-free water delivery system components. The new regulation, known in the industry as NSF-61G, requires less than 5 parts-perbillion for lead leaching for the “Health Effects of Safe Drinking Water.” It also addresses the lead content of potable water delivery system products as having a weighted lead content average of not more than 0.25%. Brass and copper water lines are used in the U.S. for the vast majority of water delivery systems; and with good reason. The copper contained in brass makes brass a natural antimicrobial agent. The Environmental Protection Agency supervised extensive testing of antimicrobial products and, according to the Agency’s stringent test protocols, 355 copper alloys, including brass, were found to kill more than 99.9% of Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, and a number of other harmful bacteria. There are many advantages offered by Lee Brass’ LEE FREE package: ■ Lee Brass products are manufactured in the U.S.; ■ Lee Brass products contains antimicrobial properties that may naturally kill bacteria.This is not the case with other materials, such as stainless steel and PVC.
