    I worked in auto parts for a few years so I'm familiar with their products.

    It's a shame; I imagine they're shifting production overseas, but can we confirm that?

    [edit]
    Another article linked to yours had this to say. I wonder if it's true or if it's SOP for PR.

    another edit: dug around and it appears most of their 88 plants are in the US, including 6 of them in Canton, where the company has been operating since they moved there from St. Louis in 1901.

    There's one plant in China, one in Singapore and one in Romania. The rest are pretty well in the first world, with most non-US plants in France, England and Canada.

    Hmmm maybe someone should suggest to Kerry that he go and do a follow-up to Bush's visit and see how things are going these days...
