Kalopsia Collective is based in Leith, Edinburgh's creative quarter; located on the Firth of Forth, in the North of the city. Leith was for many centuries Scotland's premier port and was once a key area for manufacturing and ship building.
Over the past decade Leith has come a unique area for creative and tech businesses in the city. Kalopsia has been involved in this development for many years and hopes that through sustainable development, they can re-establish Leith as a Manufacturing centre by bridging the gap between creative business and manufacturing. Kalopsia has constructed a design and sustainability led factory which focuses on effective processing and the wellbeing of their staff. From this space, we manufacture products for clients from around the UK and Europe.
Kalopsia manufactures everything in-house in our factory in Leith. This traditional factory set-up allows us to have complete control over everything we put out. What sets the Kalopsia facility apart from other factories is our dedication to lean manufacturing practices. Kalopsia has developed systematic methods for minimising waste whilst increasing manufacturing efficiency. The space is constantly evolving, the whole team are engaged in its development. By creating controllable margins for quality and innovation Kalopsia is able to create a seamless, productive system that optimises the team's efforts.
