The business is supported by their 300 strong workforce. Upskilling the workforce for the future is a continuous theme within the business after upgrading manufacturing to state of the art production equipment to supply the leading retailers like Asda, Morrison's, Tesco and Amazon to name but a few.
Not only does each machine minimise production time to but also contributes to lowering the company's carbon footprint by minimising the cycle time from plastic pellet to plastic box.
A lesser known fact is that really useful products are World Leaders in LP record Storage which is the fastest growing segment of the music Industry. These Boxes are used extensively by musicians, record labels, disc Jockeys and your average music lover with a Vinyl collection.
The Boxes are shipped all around the world and are sold by the Container store in USA which can be considered the greatest Storage Retail Company in the world. So far this year Really Useful products have exhibited at music events in London, Utrecht, Paris and Barcelona. The inspiration for this product came from our founder who had Vinyl album but no way to store them. Which goes to prove the old adage of- necessity is the mother of invention.
