You also now have me curious as I'm not knowledgeable about hardware but just noticed that we do carry about 15 Greenlee products ourselves.

Actually hardware is one of the few businesses that except for Harbor Freight, you'll find a lot of US product. It makes sense to manufacture in the US due to the weight, so a significant percentage of equipment still made in the US. I would say in an average hardware store, you'll find 60-70% of the equipment and tools made in the US.

To get back on track, regardless of whether it's 100% or not, I'd definitely encourage supporting Greenlee.
I just found that one of the tools is made in Germany, battery charger from Czech republic and the battery from Germany.

That doesn't diminish the company at all and I appreciate you researching and clarifying. Some things just more easily sourced elsewhere. Still employee a lot of people in US manufacturing. Quality tools too.
