Hum Flowerpots scales up

The creation of a new, automated production line for 2016 has increased capacity and reduced costs enabling high volume production runs for larger customers and the ability to bring out new collections of patterns through the year, and to produce bespoke patterns.

Hum Flowerpots have contemporary graphic designs and are made in the UK, from frost- and fade-resistant plastic.

The company is based in Warwickshire and production and design all takes place in the Midlands.

Co-founder Lara Kelly said: "The positive response to our products has given us confidence in the Hum brand and we have just scaled up the business with a new, automated production line in the West Midlands. It’s always been important to us that our pots are made in Britain."  

The founder's own investment in the project has also been given a boost by a Micro Enterprise Grant from Warwickshire County Council. The automation of production enables the company to fulfil larger orders and increase exports, as well as quickly turning around new patterns.

RRP is £10 each.
