Here’s the latest from UK watch manufacturer Bremont, who are re-commencing work on their new UK factory and offices.
Being as passionate about British industry as we are at Bremont we hope the many wonderful British businesses we admire can weather this storm, there are so many inspiring companies which have been built up carefully and skilfully over decades and are the reason that ‘British Made’ carries the cachet that it does internationally today.
Here at Bremont, we will fortunately get through this COVID fog and come out of the other side. Despite the obvious challenges, we’re reassured to start seeing some green shoots of normality starting to spring up. Our stores in Hong Kong and very recently Melbourne are now open for business, and with the recent government announcement in the UK, we look forward to a phased reopening of our London boutiques.
Work has started again on our new manufacturing facility in our home town of Henley-on-Thames, which, although now delayed, should be open at the very beginning of 2021. This is tremendously thrilling for us. We are immensely proud of our mission to play a part in reinvigorating watch manufacturing on British soil and certainly the new 35,000 sq ft facility is the ambitious next step in that journey.
To see how the build is coming on, watch our short timelapse film.
