Norton Accessories

Posted: April 9, 2008 in Uncategorized

As you may or may not know by now, we sell Norton Commando parts and accessories. We currently source goods from all over the world. You in back : yes some of it comes from China. The good news is that we also have a few items made in the good old USA! Maybe some of our best stuff too.

Not sure where I’m going with this other than pointing out that it’s a global market no matter what business you’re in. We’ve stuck a toe in the Chinese water and generally it’s been a little disappointing. As a source they haven’t been nearly so aggressive on price as I would have expected. Some items are cheaper to buy but the quality leaves a little to be desired. It’s pretty obvious that the widest gaps on pricing are for things and services that have become taboo industries in the US. Chrome plating and other treatments using a variety of toxic chemicals are obviously still not on the Asian hit list. Global Warming? Dirty air? Toxic Waste dumps? Being green is still a luxury that the West can afford, there’s money to be made and impediments to the grand plan get cast aside.
