I don't know if you know/want to know this  but a few parts of the Boeing 737
are made in China, the rudders and elevators.
At first (about 15 years ago) we had to rework quite a bit of each part before
it was ready to go on an airplane but after a few stern words and some
cooperation the parts are definitely as good as the parts that used to be made
here in Washington.
As Kirk said tthey will make any quality part that you want, you just need to
specify it and be willing to pay for it.
