    I thought Apacs was Taiwan and Karakal was Belgium?

    And a few more to add:

    Babolat - France
    Black Knight - Canada
    Victor - Taiwan/Germany?
    Forza - Denmark

    There's more brands but I don't know their origin.

    im not sure about that, but im positive that Hi-Qua's origin is USA. Most grips I use are Hi-Qua (they're not bad either) and there's always USA in small letters beside it...

    Pointfore is actually a UK company based in Bristol, England.
    For some reason, I've always thought that Ashaway is headquartered in the UK as well? Can anyone confirm this?

    Yes, Victor is still a Taiwan company, although I have heard that lots of their stuff are made in China (Their factories are in China).
