Bee Industrious was proudly made in Manchester, a City which is renowned globally for its innovation, creativity and passion in industry, science, music and sport. Whilst our clients and projects will continue to take us globally, Manchester will always be home of our main headquarters.
Our name and logo was inspired by the worker bee which was adopted as a motif for Manchester during the Industrial Revolution, a time where Manchester was taking a leading role in new forms of mass production. Today the Manchester worker bees’ motif can be spotted in and around Manchester, from the crest of the City’s arms which was granted to the Borough of Manchester in 1842, to the street lights which keep our City shining bright all night.
The bee denotes the Mancunian’s hard work ethos during this era and represents Manchester as being a hive of activity throughout the 19th century. Whilst the Industrial Revolution is very much consigned to the history books Manchester is now at the heart of many modern day cultural, digital and technological revolutions, a revolution which we are immensely proud to be a part of.
