Check out CHAMP filters. We use them where I work. They are based in Albion Illinois. All of their spin on style filters are USA made, well put of the 10-15 that we stock are. Their cartridge style filters are hit or miss some are from china and some are from the USA.

Fram is New Zeland owned and has been since 2011. Fram also owns Autolite. Anyone use those plugs ????

It's economically better for everyone involved to make products where capital can be allocated most efficiently.

Would you rather fight China economically or militarily ?

That sounds good I guess, but the Chinese don't make a good hourly wage. It's hard to trade with people when it takes them a year to save up for a bicycle, hence the trade deficit. We already lost TV's, computers, a lot of appliances and the like, so why not want to keep anything we can here.

I lived in Greenville Ohio as a kid and I'm pretty sure Fram Filters were made there.

Flynn it was straight forward. The market can unite people across the globe that normally dont like eachoether because they all receive some sort of benefit.

Fram filters have always sucked from day one. Back in the days when I worked at my dad's garage, he wouldn't let one through the door. They have always been total garbage. Cut one open, then cut open a Wix ...... compare.

Yep Jerry. Quality at a fair price is always the goal. You may not remember the aftermath of WW 2 when anything stamped made in JAPAN was considered junk. Look at the auto market today. You couldn't give me an American made car unless it's a Toyota made in the US. Better yet one made in Japan.
Work ethic and technology are both light years ahead of the US.

Quality at a fair price

Or how many people use traps made outside the USA? The irony is heavy in here.

To be honest, Now that the chinese make them, they may get better. Fram filters for me have always been just above a rolled up bit of crap paper for me. I try not to use them for things that matter
