I bought one from TSC about 5 years ago and even then I couldn't determine for sure where the actual compressor was made. The tank was U.S. and I don't remember if the motor was or not. I think they were transitioning back then. The whole think was marketed as made in the US but that could mean assembled in the US. IR is a global type company and has been for a long time.
We don't need manufacturing. We have a "service" economy and can deliver pizza's to each other.
