We’re Wiltshire born and Wiltshire bred, and to this day, it’s still where we design all our kitchens at Neptune HQ. But, as we grew, we knew we needed to come up with a way of making that would allow us to create beautiful things without it costing the earth and without anybody having to wait a lifetime for it to arrive. So, after a lot of careful thinking, we built our own production house in Qingdao. It’s an extension of our Wiltshire home, creating Neptune designs by Neptune people in the Neptune way.
It’s not always easy saying that something is made in China. Mostly, people would prefer to read that it was made closer to home. But for us to do the same, on this scale, in the UK, would have meant compromising on one of our standards, which wasn’t something we were prepared to do. We also felt strongly about challenging the negative stereotype around making here. The level of skill and care for which we strive isn’t a found-in-Britain only concept.
