Yep, Chikity China!

Hunter is the best for the money in my opinion.

When I was doing electrician work it seemed every hampton bay fan was boxed differently. Some screwhead chinamen laughing about it the whole time I am sure.

Not BAD fans, just not GREAT fans - poor natural balance, no oil-bath bearings, cheap light fixtures, and too lightweight. You get an original Hunter with the oil bath and that damn thing weighs so much just the sheer mass keeps the thing from vibrating if the blades are out of balance.

Dunno about HB standalone light fixtures though...
