Eaton Compressor Pump & Motor Made in China?

I recently ordered (but I have not received) a 2 stage Eaton Compressor. I went with the Eaton because I found nothing but good reviews. I assumed (very stupid on my part) that this was a USA made unit. Until tonight when I came across the Garage Journal and found this:

Reply per Steve Derr (Sales for Eaton Compressor)

The motor is an Eaton brand and is built in China, the pump is also built in China by the same ISO 9000 company that has been building pumps for us for years.

I hope I did not make a mistake ordering this compressor, I try to avoid tools made in China for obvious reasons. Can someone please chime in with their experiences. Also can anyone confirm that Eaton truly uses Chinese parts?
