    Sportstyl, American Leisure, Toyoco and HPE Muskin. HPE is rumored to o my have made bikes in the Colton Ca plant and swimming pools in the Wilkes Barre Pa plant. Iíve found so many Cat survivors in this area that they either had to transfer them here for sale or build some here I think.

    Oh ok...I did know about Sportstyl and Cat HP Muskin but I did not know about American Leisure and Toyoco and I totally forgot about Cougar Research as you very rarely hear about any of those. Thanks guys!

    Chad, no rumors required. As I posted five years ago:: "All models were designed and manufactured at the Colton plant. The Muskin part of the company was where all the swimming pools were made. This was in Muskin, PA. However, research and development for the above ground swimming pools, all the filtration units for swimming pools, artificial Christmas trees, etc. was also accomplished by the Engineering staff at the Colton plant."

    The PA site was a logistics hub for HPE/Muskin for their East Coast distribution. That is why you see the conglomeration of machines in that area.
