Where are most companies' boards manufactured?

I know there are very few that actually make them here in the states with most aboard. Just curious if the snowboard companies actually have their own manufacturing facilities or all use a certain one that does it for them according to their own specs.

Snowboard manufacturing sources cover the gamut of possibilities from independant brands handmaking boards in garages to small scale snowboard specific manufacturing to mass produced ski/snowboard facilities.
