MLCS recently purchased Eagle America. The deal closed last month and everything is now being shipped and all calls are being handled out of MLCS' PA offices.

AFAIK, many of the Eagle America bits were made at the Whiteside plant in the USA to the same or similar specs as the Whiteside bits. This would give MLCS a "good, better, best" scenario with their basic MLCS imports, their better Katana imports, and the American made premium Eagle America bits.
