For a bit of good news on a Wednesday evening, it is encouraging to hear that the Masterlock company is returning more and more of it's manufacturing to good old Milwaukee, Wisconsin from far away China.
This American icon has discovered that it is just as cheap to make their locks here, and they can better control quality as well. Further, they can avoid a labor situation that has become more unpredictable over time. Although they maintain a factory in China, production there is almost all for the Asian markets, and even some of the American production is now sent to Asian markets.
The company notes that their Milwaukee factory is now at full capacity, something that hasn't occurred in 15 years.
