"Buying American" + losing leads

Unfortunately this is a touchy subject. My company brags about using American products whenever possible (chemicals, equipment, and vehicles). Problem is, many of our customers own jap cars, trucks, etc. I realize they are "assembled" in the USA, but....the profits go overseas, and I don't like that.

I have lost potential customers in the past cuz i mentioned we don't drive foreign trucks (only USA).


Do you offend people if you tell them you feature American products in your brochures, etc?

Thanks in advance
