ZURU is one of the fastest-growing and most disruptive companies in the world.

ZURU has quickly grown to over 5000 + team members in over 30 locations. 

The company started in toys and quickly became one of the largest in the world, competing with comparatively historic household names by disrupting through automation and innovation.
