Made in China, in case you were wondering... They are made with heavy 18 gauge metal, continuous door hinges, and magnetic closures in addition to the locks. All three cabinets I got were keyed alike, so they are probably all the same. The single shelf pulls all the way out on ball bearing slides, and can be relocated. Unfortunately it does not seem to be possible to obtain additional shelves. I wish the bottom could also be pulled out on slides.
The only assembly required is bolting on the feet, should you want to use them. Attaching the feet was not too difficult, I did have to run a 1/4" tap through most of the threaded holes for the feet. This is easiest to do if you turn the cabinets upside down. Remember the heavy gauge metal? Best to have a helper unless you are quite strong.
I found it nearly impossible to bolt the two cabinets together. You can't really see the holes and it is very difficult to get fingers in the space where the bolts and nuts have to go, as the double inner wall had sharp edges and was in the way. I finally gave up and settled for two out of 4 bolts.
I ordered 2 of these, and also a matching 5-drawer chest, all on sale. Very pleased with the chest as well. Watch for sales, these seem to go on sale quite often at a significant discount. At full retail price they are not nearly as good a value. Home Depot delivered them for free, and even put them in the basement room where they needed to go. That was much appreciated because they are quite heavy, around 100 pounds or so!
I also ordered (later) a bamboo top to turn them into a workbench, it was very stout and good looking. I will be getting more of these cabinets when I build my new shop, but I will have to figure out a better way to get them bolted together.
If that issue were solved, and additional shelves were available, I would have given this item 5 stars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich D This is one solid cabinet!
After moving to a new home, I needed some cabinets to replace the ones left at the old address. This Pro Series Base cabinet is one of several cabinets I purchased from NewAge Products. These cabinets are outstanding! They are built like a tank, and should easily survive anything I can store in them!. One note - these cabinets are HEAVY!! They come shipped on a pallet, and you may need help unloading and moving them. Check the specifications for the weight of each cabinet so you aren't surprised at just how heavy these cabinets are. They come in cardboard boxes that have Styrofoam inside to protect all edges/corners of the cabinet. I will definitely be purchasing more of these cabinets.

These Pro series cabinets are great quality. Everything about these cabinets are great. Take out of shipping box and setup. Yeah a little marring here and there from shipping but no big deal. The 18 gauge is awesome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dion Quality and Built to last
I have worked in the mechanic's and technician trades for over 30 years. When it came to setting up my own shop I researched equipment that would last me well past retirement. These cabinets are strong, very well constructed. You have to allow for the fact that they are twice as heavy as most of the others on the market so you may need help installing them.

I think that the construction and details of the units are off great design and quality.
