My Harley Benton Kahuna
There a few small firms that still manufacture some very nice Ukuleles and other instrument in Europe. Then there are a number of European importers and retailers who have a range of Ukuleles they import, usually from China, and then brand with their own name. These are usually better than the budget end, (though may include a budget end model) and some can be quite good quality

Englishman, Terry Pack started out as a luthier in the 1970's, then became a Guitar distributor. In 2010 he started his own brand of Guitars that were made in Vietnam and in 2013 he added Soprano and Concert Ukuleles to the range

Thomann

Thomann was founded in 1954 and are a big German Music Shop with an online presence that claims to be, (and possibly is), Europe's biggest online music retailer. They are a large distributor of a lot of famous Ukulele brands and since before 2010 have had their own "house" brand of Chinese made Ukuleles, from budget through to mid range, called Harley Benton. In 2013 they added a second higher quality brand of Ukuleles made by Strunal called Thomann Bohemia and in 2014 they extended this with a number of Portuguese made models (but they had to drop the Bohemia for these as they are not Bohemian, so they are just call Thomann)
