When we first looked at manufacturing Scooterpeg, people asked if we'd be getting it made in China. That does have it's benefits however for us, it was important to be able to say 'Made in the UK'. It's where we're from, where our product designers Idea Reality are, and there is a well established and thriving manufacturing base in the UK.
For us it means, faster response time, a higher degree of quality control, better communication (we don't speak mandarin!), but first and foremost it was important to us to support our home nation.
As a result, we're now listed on www.thebritpack.co.uk which is a great site that supports and promotes British businesses that are not only based here, but also manufacture in the UK too.
