DESIGN AND INNOVATION
Our ethos is simple. Create the BEST sports products on the planet. We define BEST through product performance, playability, aesthetic design, profitability and quality. Our skilled team of designers, developers and mechanical engineers are galvanized through this ethos, underpinned by our R&D partner Loughborough University.
TECH IP LICENSING
We have a comprehensive network within sport reaching into many sports brands, manufacturers of various product categories and distributors in multiple countries. For these reasons we are well placed to support those inventors, designers and creators who have developed game-changing IP and are seeking a partner to land the IP in the global market.
We develop concepts through solid design process and protocols, adopting the latest software and using market research as the fuel for our design engine. Inspiration is drawn from tech conferences, expos and examination of related industries. As well as developing our own IP, we scout for third party IP, developed by specialists in complementary industries, which can be potentially applied to our sectors.
Based out of China, our quality control team develops QC protocols for key stages of the production line, meeting the individual requirements of our clients. These protocols are implemented by assigning team members to vendors to check the production line and finished products. Our clients trust the quality as well as the performance of our products.
We can be your boots on the ground managing a portfolio of factories across different continents, delivering product on time, with best-in-class quality and enhanced margin. Our team of production managers, logistics supervisors and quality control specialists will make sure you are in good hands.

3D printing and vacuum cast moulding are utilised in our design process to inform future designs, ensuring credibility of components and the overall design. We open aluminum tooling to build play test prototypes, their performance is validated through laboratory testing to further inform the design and deliver incremental performance enhancement in the final specification.
We provide our clients with expertise in shipping products across the globe by supporting client/ customer logistics functions with documentation for customs and tax purposes, making sure products leave and arrive on schedule.
We are shaped to deliver a comprehensive licensing business; the reason why some of the biggest brands in sport partner with us. We are efficient, process and value driven making us the perfect team for a brand to partner with to drive incremental brand and sales value.
The foundation on which we build products and ensure success. We create a comprehensive databank of research, gathering from multiple data sources. We identify the target market and consumer and understand how they live, chat, shop, play and most importantly, what influences them. Consumer focus groups, stakeholder analysis and consumer testing workshops both pre design and during the development process ensure we are, and remain, on target.
