It was buried in the WSJ about a week ago. IIRC, the parent company is Chinese, but it appears there are also some American partners involved.

Hope its not another one of those Rockwell moves ... buy an old respected name in the tool business and direct the new "price point engineered" crapola to the DIY market.
I got a kick out of the press release from the State they will be headquartered in ... basically welcoming this old established manufacturing company to their state ... yeah right, all of two weeks old. :(

If it's a bad thing, will Delta machinery be built in a DIFFERENT Chinese noodle factory, or what?
