      According to SRAM's advertising literature, all their IGHs are manufactured in Schweinfurt, Germany (northern Bavaria). Hub manufacturing operations there were started 114 years ago by Ernst Sachs and Karl Fichtel.

      There is a short video illustrating production of the iM9 in their new Romstrasse facility on the SRAM web site.
