Hi mate. Welcome to the forum.
Is this for research purposes?
Curious as to why you are asking.

Hi Spoon, I am a Brit living in Slovenia and there are many UK citizens who bought houses and are doing them up. I know some of them and talking to some local electricians, they were interested in UK companies supplying decent quality products as quality can be dubious from Eastern Europe. When in the UK, I will buy some units for some mates but would prefer to buy British ( if there any manufacturers left). I don't want any Chinese or Asian stuff rebranded as EU or UK stuff. Cheers. Andy

to be honest you cant go too far wrong with a backbox - as long as it stays in the wall and doesn't lose its threads and is up to regs then they're all the same. if ur talking about drywall backboxes then i would be a bit more choosy.

I would imagine that every Back box sold in the UK is manufactured somewhere else.
It’s not where they are manufactured that matters, it’s the quality of the manufacturing that matters.
