They probably aren't the OEM of the servos, and they are branding the
servos. This is just a guess, though. Most low-cost servos these days
are made in China or Taiwan, and there is a growing import market from
"generic" factories in China. This doesn't mean that by going to the
original manufacturer you'll get better prices. Usually they won't sell
to you unless you are buying hundreds or even thousands.
$37 is an okay price for a metal gear, dual BB standard-size servo that
has 120 oz-in of torque. Cheaper might be the GWS S06 MGBB (MG for metal
gear, BB for dual ball bearing). Balsa has these for $20. This servo is
also available for cheaper with plastic gears.
