The news has broken that a major producer of model trains is cutting ties with some companies:

"Chinese contract manufacturer Sanda Kan has sent letters to a number of its customers worldwide, telling them it will no longer be able to make products for them.

According to industry sources, among the model railroad customers receiving letters from Sanda Kan are Weaver, S Helper Service, American Models, Bowser, Micro-Trains and Märklin/Trix.

Kader Holdings, which purchased Sanda Kan in 2008, is also the parent company for Bachmann, Lilliput and Graham Farish."

Some thought companies like Bowser would be affected. Bowser, however, ceased affiliation with Sanda Kan some time ago and is supplied by Affa Technology, I believe. Some companies mentioned, however, are left to find new Chinese sources or go out of business.

No American manufacturing company could ever compete...

Government taxes regulations entitlements benefits insurance healthcare and retirement would choke them to death and leave their rotting corpse for the vultures.
