The factory was designed to produce badges, trophies and gifts for the domestic market. A new temporary company, Fattorini Llewellyn Ltd, was set up to build the factory and equip it with the latest machinery. Thomas Fattorini finally sent their production manager as an interim manager to set up the operation and the management of the plant and its employees.
As with all new endeavours, there were a few teething problems starting up. Production manager’s Report
The Company printed its first leaflet illustrating the types of products that it was capable of making.
