You are short at least one category for the parts buying poll. I look for U.S. made parts and gripe to my suppliers when they don’t have them. Sometimes it actually helps motivate them to check things out a little better. Thanks.
I think a big problem in this area is fleets buying generic “white box” off shore products and they don’t even know it. Too many suppliers hide the import aspect through labeling.
survey is flawed. i can select all 3 and not contradict myself.
The parts manufacturers seem to be awful pround that they are now selecting to sell foreign parts, as it comes clearly stamped on the boxes. Id like to purchase USA made parts or even American (this continent) but they are not always available and like everything else they are getting harder and harder to find. Prices does become a consideration with everything, as money does make the world go around.
youve missed the big picture which is buying chinese parts and reboxing them and labeling them from the usa
