For me, being in a work environment is the best and most simple authentic way to develop skill, knowledge and understanding in IT subjects as while something may be learned in theory, it’s not until it is put into practice that it begins to make sense for true understanding and development in topics and methodologies. Examples of these types of subjects would be within networking, programming, installing, and upgrading hardware, software, and administration where they can only best be experienced and understood when in real-world usage. Aside from learning practical skills, social skills are an under-looked skill that has been developed where engaging with a vast workforce leads to different social scenarios that myself and others can appreciate at any point in the future whether in a workplace or in life. Certainly, getting that real-time experience has built me up to be a better person in all social and technical skills that will stay with me throughout life.”

What we do

Equipped with fresh eyes and curious minds we realised that there was immense potential for improvement in the solar shade sector. It’s what prompted our invention of revolutionary, patented bloc out blind technology. It was the impetus for our Safe by Design adjustment wand that empowers elderly people with the ability to easily control light levels, while protecting the young and vulnerable by eradicating the risk posed by dangling cord adjusters.

We’ve always been an agile company, using our ingenuity to overcome challenges, innovate better solutions and enhance people’s lives. We launched a PPE strategy, fully transitioning to manufacture face shields within days of the first signs of Covid 19, since evolving to become expert designers and volume manufacturers of healthcare solutions. And this is just one more way we’ve turned our engineering and design experience into a meaningful, positive outcome.

But the technology is just a means to our end. A better night’s sleep, reduced energy consumption, a safer home environment and a long term, indigenous supply of PPE improves lives immeasurably. That’s our simple goal.
