Montana Home Built from All American Products and Materials

Springfield, Missouri — January 6, 2012 — Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) has been selected to provide the security system for the All American Home, being built in Bozeman MT and with the help of Kenco Security and Technology to install the system. Anders Lewendal, an economist turned builder, is constructing the 2,200 sq. ft., three-bedroom home entirely from U.S.-made products in order to demonstrate the economics and benefits of buying domestic goods. The XT Series™ Burglary/Fire/Door Access Panel chosen for the home, like all DMP products, is designed and made in Springfield MO. Kenco Security and Technology will install the system.

“It’s unfortunate that building a home from only U.S.-made materials is newsworthy,” said Vice President of Sales, Mark NeSmith. “DMP believes that there are many benefits to designing and building products right here in America. It enables us to stay more closely connected with customers, respond more personally and quickly to their needs, and expedite delivery of products. DMP is the only security technology company able to stamp ‘Made in America’ on every product we sell.”

The XT security system is ideal for both residential and small commercial applications. It can be equipped with Network, Cellular, and Dialer communications and is compatible with all DMP 1100 Wireless Series receiver and devices. The Bozeman home will include cellular communications, enabling the owner to use the MyAccess and Virtual Keypad mobile access features that will allow her to monitor and control the system from her smart phone or mobile device.

“As a local company, we are especially interested in the idea of buying American-made products in order to increase jobs here at home,” says Thad Lensing, Director of Sales and Marketing at Kenco. “We are proud to be part of the program, and hope it raises awareness of the benefits each of us can create just by buying products made here in the U.S.”

Everything from the nails, screws and bolts to the steel, staples and bathtub is made in the United States. In all, the home will include more than 120 products from more than 33 states.

In addition to proving that it’s possible to economically build a home using only domestic materials and products, Lewendal also sees this as an opportunity to stimulate the U.S. economy. He cites figures demonstrating that, if every builder bought just five percent more U.S.-made materials, it would create 220,000 jobs.

Kenco designs, sells, installs and services commercial and residential burglar and fire alarm systems in Montana and Wyoming, and provides monitoring for alarm subscribers from its Monitoring Center in Billings. Kenco has earned a respected name in its region by installing quality security systems and providing excellent customer service. For more information, contact Thad Lensing at 406-245-4946 or visit
