Buxum UK Ltd has recently announced that they are to move their manufacturing and distribution operation from Hong Kong to Okehampton, Devon. The company are set to relocate to a manufacturing unit on Okehampton’s Exeter Road Industrial Estate where they will use the facility for European distribution of their aluminium bike flight boxes. Buxum Box was founded by Devon born Ed Morris who was inspired when he was unable to find a protective case for his bike on a cycling trip to the Pyrenees.
Councillor Andrew Leadbetter, Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Economy and Growth, said: “We would like to extend a very warm Devon welcome to Buxum and its founder Ed Morris. We’re delighted that the company has chosen our county as its new home as it continues its expansion plans. As a manufacturing business trading internationally, its relocation from Hong Kong to Okehampton is further proof that in a global marketplace Devon is a premium business location. It’s good news for our local economy to hear that Buxum is planning to recruit locally in line with the company’s plans for growth.”
