Sheffield Company on Full Production as Olympic Products Lift Off

20th July 2012

As the Olympic spirit captures the nation's imagination, so one of the few British made products are flying off the shelves at John Lewis Partnership stores.

Sheffield cutlery manufacturer, Chamber member & -Made inSheffield Mark License holder Chimo Holdings, the makers of the Olympic themed teaspoons and Limited Edition Salad Servers have a full order book as demand ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games grows. Deliveries are going out on a weekly basis to meet demand and still some items are already out of stock at some John Lewis branches. Chris Hudson, team principal of Chimo Holdings says; Not only are we thrilled to be making Olympic products here in Sheffield, but it seems the public want to buy items with the Olympic logo that are actually made in theUK.   We hear a lot of people are buying these for their grandchildren and even as christening spoons, and this is before the Games begin & overseas visitors arrive wanting souvenirs. Charles Turner, Chairman of -Made in Sheffield added; Chimo Holdings are an excellent example of the high quality products expected fromSheffieldmanufacturers.  In this instance their quality has shone through and John Lewis Partnership are to be congratulated for not only buying British but recognising the excellence of manufacture inSheffieldand particularly the craftsmanship within Chimo Holdings.
