Lodge Manufacturing's small line of enamel-coated cookware is imported from China. All the rest of its cast-iron cookware branded Lodge or Lodge Logic is made (and quite well, I would add) in South Pittsburg, Tennessee, USA.
Lodge Logic is made by Lodge. It's not two companies. It's the same cast iron cookware Lodge has always made, except now it comes seasoned from the factory. When Lodge started pre-seasoning its cookware a few years ago, they changed the name to Lodge Logic.
I buy American almost exclusively when I have a choice, but some countries are known for the best quality of certain things. I do like and buy German tools. The problem with buying Chinese and other Pacific rim items, is that they are made there because it's cheaper than other areas in the world. Why? The workers are exploited. I can't support that in good conscience. And corporations here that have abandoned the USA and produce generally inferior items to boost their profits is repulsive to me also.
American companies don't necessarily WANT to go overseas. they are forced by high corporate taxation -even Europe has learned this is folly and has reduced their corporate taxes to below 20% whereby their in-country production and therefore employment has increased. It's almost as tho in the U.S. - it's by design to force overseas production. hmmmm wonder why?
I think we should ignore where things are made and buy things that fit our needs (considering quality/price), research well, if Italians make better shoes buy Italian shoes, if Japanese make better more dependable cars buy Japanese cars, we need to remember that the American companies manufacturing their goods 'overseas' as we put it are American owned only the labour is supplied by these countries which is why these companies are Anti-American in nature as they kill small businesses suppress inventiveness and freedom of choice by consumers as well as causing an increase in the cost of living and unlike what the politicians would have you believe the are NOT 'job creators' as they use less labour /dollar earned and pay less taxes /dollar earned compared to small / medium businesses.
