Default Quick builds from Mexico?

I bought an RV-7A project that was a quick build.

The flaps had stenciled "Hecho en Mexico" on them which I thought might have been a joke. However, once we put them on a bench and discovered how much twist they had (about 2 degrees), I was not sure.

We made new flaps that were completed yesterday.

Does anyone know if Van's contracted with a company in Mexico at some point? This would have probably been around 2010 or so.
