Firstpress Wins ‘Best of British’ New Product Award
Working in partnership with Pot Pal Ltd we used our team strengths to create and design an award winning range of products called Pot Pal.
In 2016 we met product designer Brett Cattlin who enquired with us about producing his registered designs. During our initial meeting, we were intrigued by the uniqueness of Brett’s designs, so much so that talks began to further develop his wooden designs into authentic plastic products which could be produced using injection moulding tooling.
After several meetings, we joined hands to become business partners through an exclusive manufacturing licence agreement and soon after, through high investment and strong belief in the designs, we put our team to work on designing injection mould tooling to produce our new products.
Our team worked closely together for the best part of one year in the extensive development process of CAD design, prototyping, tooling, packaging and printing design to now see the first two products finally available and ready for market. In 2016 we exhibited prototypes of the products and won the Glee ‘Best of British’ New Product Award for ‘Pot Pal Clasico’.
