I'm sure your "belief" (or lack thereof) trumps a statement from a company rep. At least to you and perhaps many others. It's no big deal, really.
low volume demand
maybe more reasons, as I did not record the call

So the company that makes all tapewound strings I assume is an American company. Then that means they load up all their string making equipment and cart it over to the UK to make Roto's (handmade in the UK) after they run off a batch of La Bella's (made in the USA).
