When we ordered this, I was told that it was backordered and a "container" was on a ship headed to port. I assumed that this reformer was made in China, and would be just OK. Imagine my surprise when it arrived and said Made In Turkey. The shipping packaging was outstanding, and the reformer itself is made exceptionally well. The craftsmanship and woodwork is far above average. I thought I'd be on the floor with nuts, bolts, and wrenches putting the thing together, but much to my further surprise, the unit was fully assembled except for a few minor things such as the feet and pulleys. The reformer is excellent. I have no complaints.
