SIDNEY, N.Y., Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Amphenol Industrial Products Group, a global leader in interconnect systems, is a participant in the United States Department of Transportation's Buy America provision for the rail and mass transit industries.

Amphenol prides itself on the ability to provide interconnect solutions that meet the stringent requirements of the railway system, while supporting the Buy America initiative."
