They make pretty cool everything, but yes if you were referring to the fireplace looking heaters. All hand crafted quality, and heavy as a bus. Some of the stuff looks funny though. I like their desks.
I don't think I can post a URL here but a popular blog called A Continuous Lean has a section called The American List. Just Google those terms and you'll find their list of Made in the USA companies, including New Era (baseball caps), Leatherman (multi-tools), Zippo (lighters), and literally hundreds of others.
Many "American" cars are assembled in Canada. Michelin tires are made in Canada (although not exclusively). Per Wikipedia, abt 80% of Canadian exports go to the US. Canada is also the US's chief export market.
There aren't very many products that are 100 percent made in the USA. I think the only thing that is still American made is food, and, some grocery chains are trying very had to have that imported too. The only reason it hasn't happened is because of our tight food safety laws.
But, I think things like Pencils, and some stationary is still made here. But, almost everything else is built somewhere else, and is only assembled, packaged, and shipped here.
While Ford may claim to manufacture cars in America, not all of the car is made in the Untied States. Some parts of the car are made in other countries and shipped to the Ford plants for assembly.
I think this could be the reason why so many of todays cars are being recalled, is because the parts that are coming from other countries may not have to deal with the regulations in the U.S. Thus, we get faulty parts, and the model of the car in question has to be recalled to inspect.
I also worked for a major supermarket chain, and you would be surprised by the amount of produce that comes from other countries. A majority of the citrus comes from countries in South America. The only thing we still consume domestic is corn, beef, and poultry, the rest comes from out of the country, a lot of it from Mexico, where farming is even cheaper than the factories that have moved down there.
The sad thing is, we could produce huge amounts of food here, but, those food giants who monopolise the stock market, would rather that our farms remain less productive, to keep the costs of food high, while they get foreign produce for pennies on the dollar, continuing to make them rich. While a lot of people starve to death.
What will it take for USA to realize we need to start minding our own business?Wouldn't this be the simplest solution to all the issues with other countries? I hate to sound cold hearted but if they want to kill their...
