Default Best source for amplifier enclosures in Europe/Asia?

I have been looking around and also searched the archives in order to find the best looking enclosures for preamps (1U), power amps (4U or so as it is 100W class A) and a lab power supply I am putting together (3U), and the best looking enclosures I come up with are from these vendors:

I particularly like the optional 10mm front plates and integrated heat sinks available from Hifi2000.

Are there any other vendors I should look at in Europe or Asia?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but these seem to be goods quality and value for the money.

I have compared products against and is far better and nicer IMHO!

I have purchased and built several of their enclosures and they are easy to work with, the different parts fits excellent and the price compared to the quality is not too high.

The only downside I can think of is that the heatsink sides of "Pessante Dissipante" is fitted to the back and front panels with steel bars/brackets and a fairly large number of screws and nuts. It's a bit fiddly if you have to dismount the heatsinks but otherwise the enclosure is just great.

Elfa stocks some of their smaller enclosures, but with PREMIUM price - as always. Much less costly to buy directly from even with shipping costs!

The enclosures from thlaudio In Taiwan looks nice but is a surplus stock, so it will be difficult if even possible to get parts if you need that later on. They are full of holes who may not be where you would like to!
