. You know d&^% well they saved a ton on labor, but did they pass that on to you? Heck no they just compounded the profit by charging the same or higher price as the U.S made item.
Vince you are more right than you know. We pass the Eaton Compressor company a couple of time a month on the way to the family farm. In the last 3 or so years, you should see how things have changed there. They just built a huge new building. They like they're toys too. They have a large motor home, at least one large boat, jet skis, a Hummer, and a few hot rods in the parking lot. Until a few years ago, they didn't even have a name on the building. It definitely seems that they're profits have increased quite a bit lately.
I went with a Kellogg-American compressor. Yes it is made in The U.S.A.
