I'm at least a bit stumped! The only non-Chinese T5s that I saw, are new-old-stock at the Claremont, NH Home Depot, LOL.

It's a punch in the face to folks that like T5s!
Now, it looks like most T5 manufacturing returned to Europe, albeit not Holland. Wouldn't be surprised if that happened right when Ledvance moved Sylvania to China!
