“Necessity is the mother of invention” is a well-known proverb. It means, roughly, that the primary driving force for most new inventions is a need.


11 March 2020 is when the world we knew changed.

The Covid19 outbreak was announced as a Global Pandemic.

The world was turned upside down.


South Africa like many countries had over the years become dependant on imports , with local manufacturing dwindling across all sectors.

Like all other countries we found ourselves short of many necessities, especially PPE, which was needed by not only the Front Line Health workers, but people across all sectors.


It was at this time, we decided to dive into manufacturing of PPE.
We imported machinery & raw materials, and the rest as they say his History.
