TV news story about PrincetonTec dive lights

PrincetonTec which is really in Bordentown NJ but just wouldn’t sound right being called BordenTec is my favorite dive light maker and is insourcing, bringing back jobs to NJ from China. The video shows the workers making lights, I know management dives but none of these workers look like divers :(

Great story. They must have been warned well in advance, so that the one woman could wear her American Flag bandana. But it’s for a good cause, so we go with it.... ;-) But "more cost effective to make here" when paying employees $7.50-13.00 per hours? Doubtful. More likely they got sick of returns at the store level due to poor quality. I suspect PT dive lights pricing will go up as a result.

As a NJ diver and resident, I am thrilled by the story.

All my lights are PrincetonTec, now. I had one other brand but one of my PT lights had a defect. I called them, they said send it back. I did, they sent me a brand new one now charge. I gave my other brand to a friend and bought a OT replacement for it.
