>Blended Model

In addition, the introduction of a more focussed marketing campaign has led to a number of very positive opportunities which will form part of our future development in 2008 and beyond. The introduction of our ‘blended’ model about 18 months ago has also given our customers the ability to choose where product is manufactured in the most appropriate geography based on volume, complexity, supply chain & logistics. As a result, some customers now have a number of their lower volume, higher complexity products manufactured in the Kingfield facility in Chesterfield, Derbyshire whist at the same time their higher volume products are manufactured in Kingfield’s Chinese partners facility.
