Yoomi makes its way into The Economist…

Our very own Jim Shaikh, the CEO and inventor of yoomi, recently attended an interview with a journalist from The Economist which offers authoritative insight and opinion on international news, politics, business, finance, science and technology.

As a proud UK manufacturer, we were thrilled to be included in the latest article which highlighted that between September 2011 and September 2014, the number of manufacturing jobs in London rose by 15%, the fastest growth rate in Britain to date.

Although London manufacturing is likely to remain small, Jim Shaikh talks about how our recent move to our 12,000 sq. ft. premise in Kent has meant that our warehousing cost is cheaper as well as the council offering an interest-free loan which meant that we can focus our budget on developing our product and business even further.

We’re so pleased to have been mentioned in The Economist and it’s our mission to grow our manufacturing facility so that the percentage of manufacturing jobs continues to rise year after year.
