Yes, Bruce in OR, I was asking you.
I certainly understand what you are saying. Here in Fort Smith, I have relatives that work in management for Pradco (Rebel Fishing Lures) and for Umarex (Walthier). Both family members travel the world, both buying parts and selling product. We also used to have the Whirlpool refrigerator plant, which also built for Amana, Kitchen Aid, Kenmore, etc. The plant is now shut down and Whirlpool is made in Mexico. When I was working for Klein Tools in Fort Smith, we also made some items for Craftsman.
When my brother worked for DANA as a parts rep, one of their biggest jobs would be when they would do a change over. When an auto parts store would change to a new supplier, the reps would get together and re-box all the parts to match the new catalog system. At that time, O’Reilley was their biggest customer. Long story short, I certainly understand that a box really means nothing.
