After 30 years we’d like to think that we’ve got it right

Blog: 24.01.2017

Mothers and midwives love our pools.

Hospitals rate them No.1 for Safety, Value & Performance.

Why?

Because we are passionate about what we do and have been for 30 years!

Because our unique experience & manufacturing capability enables us to maximise performance & minimise risk.

 

We have achieved success by caring about every detail.

We keep things simple, but elegant and above all functional.

We like to think that after 30 years we’ve got it right!

 

In celebration of our 30th anniversary we have created a photographic archive.

Please take a few moments to scroll down the page and have a look…
