Manufacturing Partnership with Adafruit announced
Today, May 16th, 2015 Massimo Banzi, CEO and co-founder of Arduino, announced at Maker Faire during the “State of Arduino” keynote that Adafruit is manufacturing Arduino’s for Arduino.cc in New York City, New York, USA!
Limor “Ladyada” Fried said:
“Adafruit and Arduino.cc have been working together on open-source software and hardware for almost 10 years in a variety of ways, this is expanded partnership and manufacturing is part of our collective goal to make the world a better place through the sharing of ideas, code and hardware with our communities –
We’re currently manufacturing the Arduino Gemma with Arduino.cc right here in New York City at the Adafruit factory, it instantly became a top seller and we’re looking forward to bringing our manufacturing expertise and processes to start shipping Arduinos right here from the USA as soon as possible!”
Take a look at this video interview of Massimo by Make directly from Maker Faire Bay Area and containing other important announcements:

In the end of the interview massive explain about a new brand for worldwide genuine or something, but I don’t see this is register as a trademark I hope they learn from the last legs ml issue with the arguing name, like massive say we just won’t to make! And I did the community show that with the support in arduino.cc. Good luck!

Congrats! Adafruit does really interesting and good work.
Will there be a new European manufacturer as well? I find it quite to keep production processes semi-local. So I hope you can put this on your agenda too..

I will buy all my goods from Adafruit or Arduino.cc, this partnership is great news for the open source community!

[…] and our team would like to thank Arduino.cc for giving us the opportunity to assist in the USA manufacturing over the last year as the two Arduino resolved their differences and now have announced they have reached a settlement […]
