Wrong!

For instance:

As previously noted, Acco-Peerless chain is made in the USA:
"Prior to the acquisition of most of Acco’s chain division by Peerless Chain in 2006, Acco’s chain was manufactured in York, Pennsylvania. After the acquisition, Peerless moved Acco’s production equipment to Winona, Minnesota, where the manufacturing is done today ..."

Campbell chain is made in in York, PA, and Cortland, NY.

Columbus McKinnon chain is manufactured in several US locations and Canada.
