And Bendix controls went to Taiwan ...The #1 example that comes to my mind is Sorel boots. (Kaufman? Canada)
I haven't bought any Sorels since.
But the list is long.
But I have to ask you guys - why do you get upset ? Obviously the original owners didn't want the company anymore (thinking of that asshole who sold Devlieg then had a heart attack, why didn't he have it three months sooner ? and more recently Rexnord and Falk, those worthless bastards better be frying in hell when I get there) and the banks and executives and press and schools and parents and city governments and state governments and federal governments and even the working people themselves don't want factories, you can tell because society makes it as difficult as possible to have one ... well, if the collective You doesn't want these old names and treats them like dirt and someone is willing to buy them up and make the stuff, why do you get upset ?
It's like swimming upriver, and nobody but a very few of us gives a shit. And half those few are running Jap stuff with Fanucs now, and acting all patriotic in their spare time
