I would assume Hong Kong. That is if the parts are that different from the HUDY/OFNA truers. I supose you would be able to replace something like an arbor or motor with a comparable unit, but who knows?!

Since Hudy is on your list, I will say get the hudy. I havn't been disapointed with mine yet or anything else made by Hudy, well maybe the non-stepped ride height gauge. I know a couple guys at the track that had issues with the Ofna ones, about three that I can think of. One was the Corally/Ofna one. I can't really say how old they were since they really haven't change the looks of them in years. I have noticed that the 110v hudy truers seem to struggle when cutting down purples to 58 or so in one pass, but AC motors just don't have the torque that DC ones do. Get a DC Hudy Truer and you won't be dissapointed.

I have owned the Integy auto truer for about a year now and like it alot. I run oval so our tires are typically softer but I ran Purples and double purples all summer and yeah you had to make a couple passes but it works fine. For softer tires I could take 2.40's down to 2.22 with ease.

I had the older style ofna one and it was junk, everyday something broke on it, finally I got pissed and through it in the dumpster. the motor on it was pretty weak.

For motor strength you cant beat the hudy, well unless you get a manual maxmod which sounds like a jet engine, lol
If you look closely you can see that 3Racing made a copy of the Hudy lathe. Look at the machined alum parts. The OFNA and Integy have diff setup

all truers true tires, so pick the one you like & buy it. integy sounds like the one to go for, automatic & a lower cost than others others might cut in one go but how long do you expect the motor to last.
