I agree. Items like that MUST be made here. what is the problem with these guys. We have serious unemployment, we have many experts sitting at home and playing cards instead of being recalled and creat designs like that.

It is time that we start taking care of our own. We have the capacity and the knowhow, so what is the problem.

I can't see where those savings would come from given the huge expenses associated with having design teams criss-cross the globe on a regular basis for design reviews and inspections not to mention the ungodly cost of shipping the two bridge pieces clear across the Pacific. And what about safety issues? This seems to be a clear-cut example of where outsourcing couldn't possibility make sense.

I was under the impression that big products are not candidates for outsourcing to Asia because of shipping costs. Thus, white box production usually goes to Mexico, not China. This story certainly confounds that notion.
