It's a Clark's Pi now

Raspberry Pi: one million units made in Britain landmark passed
The credit card-sized computer that sells for about £30 is a British success story, and has sold 1.75m units – 1m of which were made in South Wales.
......The initial batch of the credit card-sized barebones computer were made in China, but a partnership between the Raspberry Pi Foundation, RS Components and Premier Farnell saw all Raspberry Pi manufacturing moved to a Sony-owned manufacturing plant in Pencoed, Wales in September 2012.
The Pi is Welsh now. I'm delighted. We've got one in the office monitoring all the 24/7 activities of the company and pumping metrics and alarms out on a big telly. One of our best initiatives ever if you want my opinion.
