Where is Fluvals made?


I have a eheim 2213 and there is a bit of discussion about the Eheims not being made in Germany anymore but in China. Mine says on the box made in PRC (china). I am wondering where Fluval filters are made? Anyone still have the box for there's or does it say on the filter itself? The reason I ask is because I have a heck of a time getting my Eheim 2213 to fire back up after a filter pad change. I have fight with it it takes 20 minutes and I usually have to do the whole process at least two times before it gets running again.

Hagen (the makers of Fluval) own subsidiaries in the US, England, France, Germany and Malaysia...Their headquarters are in Canada. Now this doesn't necessarily mean they are made in any of those countries, it could still be a Chinese made product.
