Participants explored the manufacturing facility to gain insights into the company's strategy
UK - Rycote Windshields reports the ‘resounding success’ of its recent press day. The event, held at Rycote’s brand new manufacturing facility in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, offered industry editors a hands-on experience that showcased the company’s commitment to British manufacturing excellence and innovation.
The event, which took place on 19 October 2023, brought together a team of industry journalists for an opportunity to meet with Rycote's diverse and international audio team, some of whom are based at the new facility, and some company representatives from both the US and Italy. Participants were invited to explore the manufacturing facility and gain insights into the company's strategy and future roadmap.
The highlight of the event was a behind the scenes factory tour that allowed attendees to meet the production team and to witness first-hand the craftsmanship and technology that goes into Rycote products. The tour also gave them a special opportunity to experience first-hand Rycotes’ new hemi-anechoic chamber with wind tunnel.
James Scott, operations director, Rycote, comments: “Hosting our press event at the new factory was a rewarding experience. It provided us with a platform to not only present our manufacturing facilities, but also to introduce our fundamental values as a community-oriented organisation. Press had the opportunity to see firsthand the dedication of our talented workforce and the processes that go into local manufacturing. With Rycote products, the attention to detail is key, and we take immense pride in exactly that, and it was evident in every step of the tour. It’s a testament to the quality that defines Rycote.”
Bjorn Rennemo-Henriksen, channel director, audio, adds: “We are thrilled by the success of our press event. It was fantastic to come together and share our company values, plans, mission and of course, our brand-new facilities.”
