Made in Vietnam, one of the lowest minimum wages in the world. Guess they have good quality sweat shops over there because it's built like a tank. If you want an American made TL-15 American Security safe you have to spend almost 5k. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before those are outsourced too. Took a week for the safe to ship because they had to wait for it to come in on the boat. I'd buy from Dean safe again but was very disappointed that it wasn't American made so I removed a star. If you're looking for a high security safe this one seems pretty solid.
Looked at all types of safes, narrowed it down to two. Called Dean Safe, and this one was recommended. We opted to pay extra to swapout the electronic lock for the mechanical lock. They call it a downgrade, but i think it's a upgrade. The unit is very well built and very heavy for its size. Would be nice if Amsec would make these in the U.S.A. instead of importing them. Everyone we talked to were very helpfull and the two guys that delivered it were nice. We opted to pay for delivering,...as the free shipping is curbside and moving a heavy item is difficult. The prices are all very good.
