Well, to be honest I do not know exactly where everything is made.  These days some products have different parts assembled at different factories all over the world, and the materials are even further spread around.  Now, a traffic drum, for example, is most likely made in the US (the West Coast usually).  I have discovered that anything big is usually made in the US for one reason – shipping cost is too high to get them from China.
