Stop the outsourcing of Craftsman Hand Tools

      Galesburg, United States

Craftsman tools have been around over 85 years. My Grandparents used them, my parents used them, and I have used them. People use Craftsman because of their value, and more importantly, being made here in America. Recently, the top brass at Sears had decided to outsource the manufacturing of Craftsman hand tools to places like China and Taiwan. The sockets, ratchets, wrenches and other hand tools you buy are now being made overseas. The quality is nowhere near as good as the USA made stuff. Many of us feel that outsourcing further injures our economy. Many corporations have outsourced, and now look at what shape we are in. Many people are no longer purchasing Craftsman hand tools due this outsourcing. Sears, we ask you to quit outsourcing Craftsman hand tools, and ensure they will be continued to be made in USA for many generations to enjoy.

Stop the outsourcing of Craftsman Hand Tools

Sincerely,

      I have purchased Craftsman specifically because they were Made in the USA - if they are outsourced in the future, I will need to look at another brand....

      Craftsman was America's tool. Sadly no more.

      because i buy and use craftsman tools. and i was under the impression that my good quality tools were made in the usa. tools made in china give me the feeling of low quality metal and parts and i want a tool that can stand up to whatever job i am using it for. please bring them back to the usa.

      I never thought you'd stoop so low to pull this crap.Dumbest decision ever.Made in USA and QUALITY was the sole reason I shopped there. Keep the Evolv line for the cheap people.

      This is a trusted, iconic, and historical example of American Quality. It is simply horrifying to see "made in China" on a CRAFTSMAN HAND tool!
