    Default Where are Acu-Rite DROs and scales made nowadays?

    I was looking into Acu-Rite for an American made DRO and then came across this news article on the web: Heidenhain Plans to Shutdown Jamestown Plant - Erie News Now | WICU and WSEE in Erie, PA

    It appears Acu-Rite plant in Jamestown NY was shut down last year and 39 people were laid off. Looks like all the machines and equipment were also sold at the auction: The Branford Group - Sales Detail

    The stuff is made in Schaumburg, IL at Heidendain's USA HQ. The scales are made in Austria at another subsidiary of Heidenhain, AMO I believe is the company.

    Just toured the factory a few weeks back, got to see it all being made.

    Scales are made at the RSF factory in Austria. DROs, Millpwrs and brackets are made in the USofA!
