This week we caught up with product and mechanical component designer Hamed and his wife Mehri from RYRO Design based in Unit A11(2) on Kenyon Court.
Hamed Faridfar has come full circle as he started his career on the industrial estate back in 2003 when he worked for a small design company developing sensors for automation and safety. Five years later, the company moved off the industrial estate and, in 2019, Hamed left the business to start up on his own.
The start of the pandemic caused a significant delay to Hamed’s plans due to severe delays in the supply chain and increased transportation costs but he has now moved in to his very first unit on Moss Industrial Estate.
Hamed has developed two lines of business at RYRO Design, one provides mechanical design consultancy services, 3D modelling, 2D Drawing, Prototyping, engineering parts sourcing and jigs and fixtures for the manufacturing industry. In the other, Hamed is developing his own range of products for the commercial catering industry.
RYRO Design occupies a 1,000 sq. ft unit at Moss Industrial Estate with an office and reception area as well as a small warehouse space which is used for storage and workshop.
Hamed said: “It’s great to be back here on the industrial estate, particularly after the significant delay caused by Covid. I wanted to come back here because it’s a great environment to work in with attractive open spaces and fantastic accessibility and on-site security.
“It has been tough starting a new business during a global pandemic but it has also forced me to develop the business in a more robust way and identify sectors and industries where I can see long term security as well as great potential for growth.
“Now that I am settled in and have got both sides of the business up and running, I have plans to expand and grow the business. My wife, Mehri, is also coming to join the business and will help me to expand.
“The team at Moss Industrial Estate have been very helpful and supportive and I am finally looking forward to an exciting future for RYRO Design.”
Neill Wood, managing director of Moss Industrial Estate, said: “We’re really pleased to have Hamed back on site and proud to be able to support him with his new venture at RYRO Design.
“It’s really important for any new business to start with strong foundations from which to grow and we have a long history of supporting local business to do just that. We wish Hamed, Mehri and RYRO Design the best of luck in their new home.” ... See MoreSee Less
