    Well they are owned by the Johnson family but I doubt they are made in America.

    That is where the company started but they are not made there anymore. Go to the store and read th box. Not USA.

    Mine was made in Mankato MN according to the box, mine is a riptide sp. I know the i pilot electronics are made outside the country but not the TM itself. I think they still make the freshwater motors in Fargo.

    Believe it or not I posted that within two hours of reading the boxes of them at BPS. There was a stack of them on sale and none of them were made here.

    I was dissappointed as the Johnson family has always tried to make everything in the US.

    I have 2 stickers on my box 1 for the TM that says made in 2011 in Mankato, MN and one for the i pilot made in Taiwan. If they have moved over seas it is in the last year.

    I have sent an email to Minn Kota to find out.
