Mitchell & Johnson is no more, the company has decided to close its doors and end operations “with immediate effect” as a result of, “… unprecedented consumer confidence challenges pre-Brexit…”
The company announced on 13 September 2019 that, “It is with great sadness that we announce the decision, which follows our significant investment transitioning from Far Eastern to British manufacturing, at a time of unprecedented decline in consumer confidence and spending, due to ongoing Brexit uncertainty.”
Mitchell & Johnson launched in 2012 and were “proud” to offer “British designed and engineered products,” following a commitment to UK manufacturing in late 2018.
But, “Tragically, we have been unable to reach sufficient global distribution fast enough to recoup our considerable investment in UK production and sustain our overheads.”
In a final note, the company added, “We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for being with us over the past few years.”
