Why is the "Made In USA" logo missing from AudioControl product boxes and manuals?
All AudioControl products are manufactured and assembled by members of the U.S. workforce at one of our two facilities in Washington State. Whenever possible, AudioControl prefers to use components made by U.S. workers in U.S. factories. In a few instances, these components are not available through U.S. manufacturers, forcing AudioControl to turn to the global market.
According to a ruling by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the "Made In USA" logo is to signify that a product is made completely (98%) of components of U.S. origin (this includes raw materials such as petroleum for plastic knobs or silicon for processing chips). For the above reasons, we are a victim of a generalized government regulation that prevents us from recognizing the hard work and dedication of the U.S. workers who make AudioControl products here in the U.S.A.
Despite this frustration, AudioControl will continue manufacturing electronic components of the highest quality at our facilities in the United States and remain committed to supporting the U.S. workforce in the expanding pressures of international competition, just as we have done for the past 30 years.
