In a recent interview, an executive at a major electronics supplier told NBC News that Marconi electric chairparts are made in only one place.
That place is in China.
Marconi is one of a growing number of companies that has come under fire for not making its parts in the United States.
Many manufacturers say they are forced to import parts because the import duty on imported parts is prohibitive.
The companies are now looking to make their parts in other countries, where they say the duties are lower.
Marquez Motors, for example, made electric chairs in China but has since shifted to a factory in Taiwan.
But a spokeswoman for Marquez did not respond to a request for comment on the company’s plans for China.
“Our manufacturing plant in China is open and we’re using it for electric chairs,” said the company spokeswoman.
“We have been sourcing from China for years.”
“We need to have that manufacturing capacity to be able to produce a high quality product in the future,” said Marquez’s president, Mark Roussel.
Marzans CEO told NBC affiliate WCVB that Marzams electric chair and electric motor parts are made entirely in the company and that there is no other manufacturing facility in the country.
“The Marzam parts are all made in Marconi,” said Roussell.
“They’re made in China, and the Marzamas electric chair, our electric chair is made in Taiwan.”

They’re all powered by the same battery pack,” said Mireille.
“So you have one motor that’s electric, the other is powered by solar power.”
But Marzammobiles CEO Mark Rouslysel told WCVB the company is looking to bring its electric chair into the United Kingdom.
“It’s a lot more cost effective and a lot less environmental impact,” he said.
“There’s less carbon emissions in the air.
There are fewer emissions in power plants and other facilities.
And that’s not a cost-effective thing to do.”
Marquez and other companies are also looking to manufacture electric bicycles.
In 2016, the British government announced plans to build a bike factory in the city of Birmingham to produce electric bicycles that will be exported to countries in Europe and the United Nations.
Marzan’s plans are also on track for a plant in Japan.
Marza’s electric bicycle parts are designed to run on batteries and use only 100% renewable energy.
The company’s CEO told WCV that Marza will not be manufacturing any of its electric bicycle components in the UK.
“That’s not our focus,” he told WCW.
“But we’re committed to our customers in the market for electric bicycle products and that’s where we are.”
Marconi said the Marzan electric chair has been manufactured in Taiwan and that Marazzan is working with its Taiwanese factory partner, Marzaj Motors, to ensure that the company will be manufacturing in the “high-quality, sustainable environment.”
“As a manufacturer, we have always taken care to meet our customer’s needs and we always take care to ensure our products meet the requirements of the customers and the regulations of the Chinese authorities,” Marazzani said in a statement to WCVB.
“Marzam motors and parts will be produced in China and are not affected by the high import duty.”
