News: Burberry choose Rotherham over China


The Daily Mail reports on the latest preliminary financial results of British fashion brand, Burberry. The firm enjoyed a 25 per cent jump in profits to £196 million on the back of a 18 per cent rise in revenue to £995million for the year ending in March. It is now one of the top five luxury goods brands in the world. The company closed down its factory in Treochy, South Wales last year, at the cost of 300 jobs, as production was moved to China but Burberry's iconic trench coats are still made at factories in Rotherham and Castleford. The company employs around 2,000 people in the UK and Burberry's Christopher Bailey told the Mail: "We have two factories in Yorkshire - in Rotherham, which we saved from closure, and Castleford, where we make the iconic rainwear."
