Manufacturing for Freight

16 Pins41 Followers
A collection of images to show some of the Manufacturing Process our own branded products went through to get to our shelves. We commissioned items to be made from all around the UK. This enabled us to ensure we were getting the best final pieces made whilst over seeing the production from start to finish.
