So are you saying they bought the castors and bearings 'globally' or imported billets of steel to bash out the panels 'globally' - is there anything else? :unsure:
Can't be just the drawers as you are shipping fresh air, Mmmmm, unless you put the drawers in the cabinet to ship then added the badge :unsure: intriguing 👀
Toolboxgate 🤷‍♂️
You really are a tantrum sour puss..... here's a tour of the USA factory... they look like they are making there to me...

Collected my pre-loved Tool Chest today.
Got a chance to see the US Pro at the Volvo dealership.
A very nice bit of kit and well worth £1100, really nice action, single key operates all the locks (unlike the bit of kit I purchased).
About 1/3 of the storage volume of the pre-loved chest, but a quality product.
If I could find anything to moan about on this item pictured the worktop isn't very deep, but we have 900mm worktop in our workshop, so perhaps it is what you are used to.

That's the same unit as SGS sell - badge Engineered like them all. Mine is exactly that unit without the back panel, cost me £400 as it had a slight dint on the back that you don't see :)

Old video, read your badge and sort yourself out man 🤣
Huge difference between SGS and US Pro compared with the Big Boys Toys....
For a start if I was a mobile Mechanical I'd have SGS/US Pro on my van (175Kg) and not something that weighs in over 1/3rd ton.
It took four strong men to load it into the van and two stupid impatient idiots to get it unloaded.

Perhaps a bit late now @AirCon but one never knows

Thanks @West Cork Paul , but I'm really happy with the 54" of fine storage space I have now.... completely full..
And we've three more tool boxes to unload.... my bro has given me a £100 towards to my purchase and taken away my four old Halfords Professional tool boxes.
He's more than happy and so am I.

The trouble with that one it has a small bench, which is of no use in a workshop with 17m of continuous bench down one whole side and some the rear of the workshop.

Now it all makes sense.

You bought cheap and cannot bear the idea that someone has something better.
Don't worry you've still got a really nice bike collection and a fantastic large bike shed.

As with all manufacture, the country isn't specific to the quality - the brand and manufacturing facilities are. I would imagine Snap-On are made to their specifications with a China internal copyright on the style. The same factory however will also make other styles and brands, likely from the same materials using the same bearings, just a different style.
Brand name as in Range Rover is associated with quality products 😇🤣
