We like to think that after 30 years 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.

 

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…
