    Well, some of their equipment is made by Huvitz, which is a South Korean company.

    Do you know the manufacturer name of the Pro-E 600 edger?

    It looks an awful lot like most Huvitz edgers, I'd bet on them.

    Well if you find out make sure to let me know, I try to keep tabs on things like that just to see which way the winds are blowing.

    Essilor Instruments Manufacturing

    To confirm, all of Essilor branded edging systems have always and currently are manufactured in France where their current location is about 2 hours outside of Paris in a small town called Ligney. (Google: Essilor Instruments,Ligney, France)

    I know with changing markets, suppliers, acquisitions, etc. and the rumors in our industry, it can be confusing to know where products are manufactured. In the US all equipment must be labeled with the country manufactured in. They are usually listed on the serial number label for reference. The following is what I believe to be accurate information about edgers sold in the US:

    Company/ Country of Manufacture/ Business TypIIIe
    Essilor Instruments USA/ France / US subsidiary of manufacturer
    Coburn Technologies/ South Korea/ Distributor
    Santinelli International/Japan/ Distributor
    Luneau Technoloy (Briot/AIT)/ France/ Distributor
    DAC Vision (National Optronics) USA (unconfirmed: China)/ Distributor
    SatisLoh/ Germany/ Manufacturer
    Schneider/ Germany/ Manufacturer
    MEI / Italy Manufacturer
