Über Pimoroni

We are a company of Makers and educators based in Sheffield, UK. Creators of the Pibow case (150,000+ sold worldwide) for Raspberry Pi and the UK's largest Adafruit reseller. We manufacture all our own products locally.

History

We started with a laser cutter and a kettle. Our first product, the Pibow case for Raspberry Pi, became popular immediately and allowed us to expand rapidly. Over our first six months we increased our capacity to five large laser cutters to help keep up with the demand.

In 2013 we launched our Maker shop and started to offer products from Adafruit, SparkFun, Technology Will Save Us, Sugru, and many other Maker businesses. We focussed on providing a curated selection of what we felt were the best of breed products. We also invested in a full circuit board assembly production line including pick and place, reflow, and wave soldering and began to design our own hobbyist electronics.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation launched the Raspberry Pi B+ and HAT addon specification in July 2014. We jumped straight in launching a range of HAT boards over the past twelve months including the Unicorn HAT, Explorer HAT Pro, Propeller HAT, Piano HAT, and Display-O-Tron HAT. Our online shop expanded to over 500 different products, we launched our forums, and moved into our new 8,000sq ft workshop/warehouse. We ran our second Kickstarter campaign, Flotilla, which reached 450% of its funding target.

Recently we launched our Picade (which was the UK’s first Kickstarter project), started providing guides and tutorials on our new learning portal, increased the range of products on our shop to over 850 different SKUs, and grown our team to seventeen people who design, engineer, test, assemble, package, and ship all from our premises in the heart of Sheffield.

Made in the UK

We manufacture all of our own products. Our PCBs are produced by Ragworm in Rochester and Portsmouth and where possible we source locally (our Picade panels are powder-coated just down the road from us!).

That name?

Pimoroni stands for Pirate, Monkey, Robot, Ninja (Pi Mo Ro Ni) and sounds like the name of an expensive Italian lager. It’s pronounced Pih-mo-row-knee.
