Where are the Maratac AA & AAA torches made? Or more specifically who manufactures for Maratac. I always thought they were made in China by iTP or some other Chinese. I read some threads suggesting that Lumintop makes manufactures for some of Maratac’s lights. Is this true? Anybody in the know and not just hear say?
Some retail sites claim Maratac is designed, manufactured in US.
Maratac is a trademark owned by Maratac Inc., a company based in Los Gatos, CA. However, the fact that the company is headquartered in the U.S. doesn’t necessarily mean that the products are manufactured here.
Anecdotal reports on the internet seem to point toward China. However, these reports are not well documented.
If anything, I’d say the best proof of the flashlights’ origins is the fact that Maratac is not advertised as being made in the U.S.A. If it were made in the U.S.A., I would expect that to be a major selling point.
