It is with some sadness that we heard this week the news that Cherry UK will be closing its doors at the end of 2015. ZF Friedrichshafen AG will be implementing a new business model which does not include boots on the ground in the UK.
I would like to take this opportunity to give thanks on behalf of The Keyboard Company to Mike Groom and his team in Luton. Steve, Carol and Robin have been fixtures in the keyboard business since the day I began and although I am sure they had easier customers, they have always been efficient, expert, calm and friendly. I shall miss them. Every Cherry keyboard sold in the UK in the last 20 years has been handled by them in one way or another.
I’m sure everyone will join me in wishing them all good luck in their future ventures. And maybe hoping that any money saved will be spent on new MX switch production by Cherry/ZF!
