Hi there, does anyone know who are the OEMs (original equipment manufacturers, i.e. those who actually produce the racquets) for Head, Wilson and the other big brands?
A few days ago I found the website of one Chinese OEM who wrote something like "we produce 35% of all the well-known racquets on the market". I couldn't find it again today...
As far as pro stock racquets, are they made by those OEMs too? With special materials maybe? I don't think Head is still making any racquets in Austria, not even pro stocks, as it would be too expensive to run small batch productions. Am I wrong?

Head is still making racquets in Austria, the ones with "PT" codes as far as I am aware. For pro players only... not sure where they are finished though.... China ?

All I want to know is can they make me some H22 s?

The company you are referencing is Topkey. Quest Composites, while they don't list racquet sports, also does some OEM for Tennis. Quest is one of the down-low "keep it a secret"companies, but they do very good, diligent work.
