Philips light bulbs is a Dutch multinational. GE I just noticed on my fluorescent bulb is manufactured in Canada.
Can I buy a light bulb made in the USA?
If not, do you consider this important to jobs in America?
There is a company that obtained a waiver to manufacture incandescent light bulbs in the US and they bought up the manufacturing equipment from Philips and GE. Essentially there are two companies that have this waiver to produce these bulbs.
But YES, you will be able to continue to purchase the old bulbs made in the USA. Check back with me I'm trying to track down the website of the companies.
The new energy efficient bulbs are manufactured in China because they are made with Mercury, hence the EPA would not give any company a permit to build a plant to manufacture these "toxic" environmentally unfriendly bulbs.
If you are here living in the US of course you must buy US product than anything else. Why? I do believe patronizing our own products give more potential to left up the economic.
