Growing ambition with RMS International

Tyrone Farber started his career selling toys on a market stall in Manchester. Today, he owns and manages a £75m turnover business headquartered in Swinton. RMS International designs and sells toys, crafts and stationery products and, over the past 25 years, has developed products under its own brands – Grafix, Blocktech, GL and Games Hub.

In February 2016, BGF made a long-term investment in RMS International to support its growth plans.
