|Scope:||From prototype to full scale production|
Samantha Fountain, inventor and designer of Shewee toilet solutions, originally approached Broanmain in 2003 looking for a quotation for the manufacture of her revolutionary female urination device. After signing a confidential agreement Broanmain took the time over several meetings to discuss production processes, manufacturing schedules and costs to understand the product and design in detail, something which proved invaluable. Wilf Davis, Broanmain’s Managing Director, with over 30 years experience actively and willing offered novice designer Samantha advice on materials and design improvements to ensure future production would be efficient and cost effective.
As a part of the full-service package, Broanmain has also suggested manufacturing solutions for packaging, delivery and supply options, with a focus on finding the best solution for launch and ongoing supply.
Initial production needs were in the hundreds and now nearly 5000 are produced each month. In fact, one Shewee product is currently being sold every 9 minutes worldwide and Broanmain are delighted to be part of this British success story.
“I was impressed with Broanmain and Wilf’s approach which was very different to all the other plastic injection moulding companies I had approached in the UK (9 others!)”
