We have sold both Acco and Titan chain. The Acco is US made and had not only bad galvanizing but inconsistent welds. We still have some.
The Titan chain is made in China
Metal in their own factories. Good galvanizing and very consistent quality. Their Titan shackles are also very good.
Metal is also Martyr Anodes - one of, if not the largest anode producer worldwide. Many of you probably have them on your boat.
Canada Metal has also owned Rocna
for the last several years.
The quality of their products is excellent as is their customer service
You can make a good product anywhere in the world - inferior products can also be produced anywhere - third world or first world.
