Where are Bilsteins manufactured?

Anyone know where Bilstein 5100's and Eibach Coils are Manufactured? For these to be duty free coming north to Canada(according to NAFTA) they must be manufactured in North America. I would love to know about this before I order them.

Thanks

Bilstein is a German Company, but not sure if the manufacture them there or not....They do have a factory in Ohio I think.

Eibach is a separate company. They also have US Facilities, but again, cannot see if the manufacture here.

Call the vendor where you want to purchase from and ask them what's shown on the box / label, and make sure they clearly identify the country of origin in the customs declaration.

I requested the manufacuring info and a shipping quote from Toytec a few days ago, but haven't heard back. I figured this post might give a quicker answer

Thanks for the Bilstein confirmation. Eibachs anyone??

I ordered my 5100's from Essex Distributors, located in BC. Shipping was quick and cheap. As for the cost of the 5100's, it worked out to be about the same as ordering them across the border.

On a side note, the remainder of my Toytec Ultimate kit was purchased through Silverwood Toyota in Alberta. It seems to be one of the only Canadian places that Toytec will deal with here in Canada.

I don't think they're manufactured there, I think that's just their US headquarters or something. Could be though...
