While there are more than just a few tonneau cover companies in the USA, I can say with certainty that not all of the tonneau covers sold in North America are made in the USA. Even when certain tonneau covers are claimed to be made in the USA, much if not all of their components are actually made in places like China, which begs the question: Are these tonneau covers really made in the USA? In my opinion, they are not and it drives me nuts when claims to the contrary are made.
One thing I know for sure is that all BAK Tonneau Covers are made 100% in the USA, by US citizens on US soil. Every nut, bolt, screw, rivet, rubber component and aluminum extrusion is supplied by US companies within the USA. There is not a single component in any BAK tonneau cover that is made in China or anywhere else other than the USA. It is my contention that doing so results in a far better product, with better control over quality and better customer support. Overall, consumer satisfaction is at the heart of the matter as far as I’m concerned.
As a matter of pride and a matter of quality, BAK Industries will always maintain a strict approach to ensuring that when we say our covers are made in the USA, there’s no ambiguity or grey area on the issue.
I would very much like your opinions on whether you feel that tonneau covers that are comprised of components made largely in China should be allowed to be deemed or advertised to be made in the USA? Let me know what you think?
