We commercialise breakthrough intellectual property. In English, this means that we invent novel engineering products that we hope will make a positive impact to those that use them. Our first product to market is the QUADSAW.
The idea for the QUADSAW came about when our co-founder, Michael was working as a kitchen fitter. One day he saw an electrician cutting a rather ragged square hole for a socket. Michael asked the tradesman why he wasn’t using a square hole cutter and was surprised to discover there wasn’t one. This was in 2009. In 2012, Michael met Ean, and the decision to create a company that brings such products to life was born.
Ean is a self-confessed innovator, both as an entrepreneur and problem solver. Passionate about design and quality, Ean has assisted in the development of leading brands as a commercial lawyer, and has the business skills to navigate commercial issues. He knows how to create, protect and drive value from intellectual property.
Micahel was born and raised in Eritrea (East Africa) from a family of irrigation farmers, and was exposed to all kinds of engineering at an early age. Looking into the sky one day while working with his father, Michael asked: “how does that thing fly, it doesn’t have wings like birds?” When his father replied: “son, if you wanted to know that, you have to study,” Michael knew his career ahead lay in engineering.
Uri’s specialty lies in the cross section between project management and business development. Having been Commercial Director of several global companies, Uri understands what is required to take products and companies from the idea stage to commercialisation.
