Independence Day Message – From Dario Orlando

July 1, 2011 2:11 pm

With Independence Day 2011 right around the corner, one naturally is reminded about the level of freedom Americans enjoy every day. As Americans, we enjoy the highest level of freedom that anyone in the world can have – all as a direct result of our forebears and our American servicemen and servicewomen who put their lives on the line for us everyday. For their ongoing support and commitment to the United States of America, the entire Team at Steeda Autosports including myself, are sincerely thankful.

There is no doubt that America is the best country in the world to live today, and while our public servants and armed forces have done an outstanding job of protecting us from physical threats, we are still under an intense attack economically. For many years, jobs and manufacturing capacities have been outsourced to locations that are beyond our borders and as a result, our hard earned American dollars have been diverted to various off-shore locations. The end result is that the American economy is in the worst shape it has been in during the past 75 years and many of our friends and families are suffering.

At Steeda Autosports we are doing all we can do to reverse the trend of outsourcing to foreign countries. We have a dedicated American workforce that is actively employed in two locations: Pompano Beach, Florida and our newest facility in Valdosta, Georgia. We strongly support the American worker by not going with the trend that many of our competitors have done over the years – we have kept our design, engineering, manufacturing, and support here in the United States of America where it belongs!

So while you enjoy this holiday with your family, please do not take our freedom for granted, and please buy products and services that are made in America.

Have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July.

Dario Orlando
President and CEO, Steeda Autosports
