Excellent post, I am old enough to remember the commercials that toted "made in America"
I needed a new belt for my pants as my old one gave up the ghost after 15 years of daily use.
I was pleasantly surprised to purchase a new one at the same local store that I got my first one from 15 years ago.
I could not believe my eyes, same belt same great quality, best of all still made in Canada!
I had no problem dropping the $25.99 for this belt at all because I know how good it is and how long I can expect it to last.
My old belt outlasted 2 yes 2 new refrigerators that both failed due to parts made overseas.
One washing machine due to parts made overseas.
Almost one dishwasher, total replacement of the control pads.....still under warranty but we still had to wait for the parts to come from China.
We have a refrigerator in our garage that is 56 years old ....older than ourselves by a few years and still keeps the beer and pop ice cold, never had
it serviced in the twenty plus years we have owned the house.
Remarkable but again it was made here in North America parts and all.
I would love to see this belt manufacturer to begin producing appliances.....we would replace everything and be happy to pay the money.
