Made in USA


Philosophy of

We prefer to sell products Made in the USA when available.  We also willingly sell products made in countries that are friendly toward the USA and support basic human rights.  As information becomes available we try to list the latest country of origin for each of the products in our online catalog so you can use that as one factor in your buying decision.  Please contact us immediately if you find any country of origin information is out of date.

In a few cases we reluctantly sell products made in countries that do not fit the above description.

We also believe it needs to be easy to find out where products are made.  Therefore we are making an effort to add country-of-origin information to our online catalog descriptions.

** Some of these companies also make products in other countries that we do not sell, or use components manufactured in other countries.  Manufacturers are constantly changing plant locations and we may not always be immediately aware of these changes.  The above information applies to finished assemblies and might not apply to individual replacement parts that in some cases are manufactured outside the USA.  This table is believed to be correct at the time of publication.


Definition of "Made in USA"

This terminology is defined by the US Federal Trade Commission.  The following information is from one of their online articles dated October 2001.

Consumers who see "Made in USA" on a product expect the claim to be truthful and accurate. Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, news reports suggest that consumers are more sensitive to "Made in USA" claims and more interested in buying American-made goods. 

According to the Federal Trade Commission, "Made in USA" means that "all or virtually all" the product has been made in America. That is, all significant parts, processing and labor that go into the product must be of U.S. origin. Products should not contain any - or only negligible - foreign content. The FTC's Enforcement Policy Statement and its business guide, Complying with the Made in USA Standard, spell out the details of the standard, with examples of situations when domestic origin claims would be accurate and when they would be inappropriate. See for more information. 

Here's how the FTC evaluates "Made in USA" claims in product advertising, labeling and packaging: 

For most products: Unless the product is an automobile or a textile or wool product, there's no law that requires manufacturers and marketers to make a "Made in USA" claim. If a business chooses to make the claim, however, the FTC's "Made in USA" "all or virtually all" standard applies.
