The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced that a million of the tiny cheap computers aimed for education have now been made in the UK.
The tiny computer for education eas announced back in 2011 , with the first Raspberry Pis were made in China. Back in September 2012, the Raspberry Pi Foundation started moving manufacture to a plant owned by Sony in South Wales. Gradually, the foundation's manufacturing partners, RS Components and Premier Farnell, have reshored all the production of Raspberry Pis to that factory, and for the last few months, all the Pis have been made in the UK.
The Pencoed factory has made its millionth British Raspberry Pi. Add these to the existing Chinese ones, and that makes one and three quarter million Raspberry Pis out there worldwide.
