Thule is made in the USA with solar power. Over 70% of Thule products are made in USA of U.S. and imported parts. By manufacturing locally, Thule is able to have better control over the quality process. When you're transporting your gear, take comfort that Thule's North American factories were the last to inspect it. Also important, locally made car racks reduce the environmental impact! Additionally, The Thule Group in North America directly employees over 1,000 American workers. Indirectly, many more jobs are created that support Thule's operations in the US. Thule sources a variety of goods and services from other local business which indirectly keeps even more Americans working.
