Animal was conceived back in 1987 by two
surfers who were really fed up
with continuously losing their watches in the water due to the straps
breaking under extreme conditions. They came up with a solution in the
form of a webbing and velcro strap that seemed to put an end to their
Setting up 'production' in a back bedroom
at one of their mother?s
houses, they began to make small quantities of straps and sell them to
their surfing friends. The money raised paid for surf trips to far
flung spots in Oz and Hawaii where the pair sold more straps to fund
their storm chasing escapades.
The simplicity and rugged nature of the
strap made it suitable for
crossing over into other action sports such as windsurfing,
snowboarding, skateboarding, and mountain biking. First and foremost a
functional performance product, the strap became a success and Animal
was born. Before long, Animal started to make sports watches. Aimed at
freesports enthusiasts, they were water-resistant, functional and
looked great on the wrist. These watches enjoyed phenomenal success and
are now a household name.
Animal is now a design-led sports brand,
boasting an extensive team of
riders in each of it?s core sports. These are surfing, snowboarding,
windsurfing, mountain biking and kitesurfing. Our 'rider-refined'
programme means all products get tried, tested and tweaked by the
Animal pro team for real rider performance. This ensures that our
products excel in the harsh conditions found in today's active sport
environments. Animal has now grown into one of the UK's fastest growing
action sports brands, producing clothing, watches, eyewear, footwear,
luggage and accessories.

this recipe, and found that it obtained a superb silky finish on all
kinds of wood, which out-performed all the products of the modern

Dartington Glass as it was originally
called was established in 1967,
in Torrington, Devon, as a manufacturer of quality glassware.
Since then it has developed and evolved
many ranges of crystal and
glassware based on its key skills of design and glassmaking.
The story began in the 1920's at the
beautiful Dartington Hall when a
wealthy American heiress and her Yorkshireman husband; Dorothy and
Leonard Elmhurst founded the Dartington Hall Trust.
Based at Dartington, near Totnes, South
Devon, their original vision
was to assist the economic regeneration of rural areas through a
combination of enterprises spanning business, education, the arts and
The Dartington Hall Trust soon became a
multi-faceted concern with a
diverse range of interests from cheese making, carpentry, farming,
forestry and education through to the conducting of research into rural
During the early 1960's, it became
evident to the Trust, that to the
north of the county there was an ever-increasing demand for new
industry due to population migration to the cities. This depopulation
and the lack of employment for young people were the basis from which
the idea of a glass-making factory evolved.
In order to provide the expertise
required for this enterprising idea,
the Trust recruited the first Managing Director, Eskil Vilhemson, from
a Swedish Glass manufacturer, who in turn recruited a team of
Scandinavian glass blowers and brought them to Devon. The factory was
officially opened in June 1967 when it employed just 35 people.
Over the following years, glass blowing skills were taught to English
craftsmen, working originally to Scandinavian designs and later to the
work of British designers. Many of the original glass blowers remained
in Torrington and have been a key strength over the years in developing
Dartington Crystal into the leading name in English crystal.
Offering simple classic designs relevant
to the current lifestyle,
Dartington Crystal quickly established an unrivalled reputation for
design leadership and fine craftsmanship.
Much of this success is attributed to the
original Design Director -
Frank Thrower. Franks designs combined functionality with beauty - a
quality that still endures in our products today. He was also an
ingenious salesman and rapidly developed availability of Dartington
products throughout the UK and many other countries. This success
allowed expansion of Dartingtons hand making skills at the Torrington
site, which has also become a leading West Country tourist attraction.
The many prestigious Design Awards made
to Dartington are recognition
of design excellence that has been nurtured with the best new design
talents available. In 1971 the Sharon Champagne Flute won a place in
the Victoria and Albert Museums top 100 designs. Like Sharon, many of
the companys original product designs from the 1970's continue to be
ever-popular choices in todays Dartington Crystal range.
As the Dartington Crystal business and
its reputation for beautiful
products has grown so has its list of high profile clients. Unique
commissions from the worlds best known corporations include British
Airways, Cartier, Coca-Cola, Porsche, Rolls Royce and Tiffany.
Dartington have also been approached to produce work for well-known
individuals. The Company supplies many members of the British Royal
household and has many UK and international celebrities as proud owners
of Dartington Crystal.

quality products everyday?
Denby tableware is exceptionally
versatile and durable, and safe for

Our aim is to match our customers'
requirements for style and quality
in tableware. We watch trends in eating, interior design and fashion
closely, to bring you products that are up to date and reflect the way

Our products are carefully made and

using the best combination of craftsmen's skills and technical
knowledge. Each piece is unique, and goes through 25 pairs of hands
before reaching yours - but our glazes are harder than steel and our
preparation and recycling of raw materials is state of the art.
We are proud of our quality - and of the
nearly 200 years we have been
working in ceramics.
Our history begins in 1806, when a seam
of clay was found at Denby
during the construction of a road to link the industrial towns of
Derbyshire. William Bourne, a local entrepreneur, examined the clay and
recognised its exceptional qualities.
Production of salt-glazed pottery was
started at Denby in 1809 and
William gave the onerous task of running the business to hisyoungest
Known as 'Joseph Bourne' the pottery
prospered and soon built up an
international reputation for its quality bottles and jars. These
bottles held anything from ink, polish and medicines to preserves and
even ginger beer.
Salt glazing was a popular method of
decorating stoneware at this time.
Common salt was thrown onto the kiln fires when the embers were at
their hottest. The salt vapour combined with the surface of the pot to
produce a shiny brown surface coating.
Times were changing and in the late
1800's glass bottles became less
expensive and replaced ceramic containers. Denby Pottery diversified by
extending its kitchenware range and developed richly coloured glazes
which were to become Denby's trade mark.
By the 1920's Denby's functional
kitchenware (from pie dishes, jelly
moulds and colanders to 'hot water bottles') could be found in many
homes along with decorative vases, bowls and tobacco jars which were
all stamped 'Danesby Ware'. This was the generic name given by Denby
Pottery to all its decorative and giftware ranges.
In the 1930's 'Electric Blue' (shiny
blue) and 'Orient ware' (matt
blue/brown) became classic giftware ranges and today are popular with
collectors. Kitchenware became more colourful with Cottage Blue, Manor
Green and Homestead Brown - all of which remained popular until the early
Radical steps to change Denby's product
range were taken in the 1950's
when the pottery became predominantly a producer of tableware (ranges
now included cups, saucers and plates). Denby continued to employ the
best designers to ensure the transition was successful and this
expertise produced such best sellers as Greenwheat (1956), Echo and Ode
(1950's), Studio (1961) and Arabesque (Samarkand in the USA - 1964).
The 1970's brought a revolution in
'oven-to-tableware' - Denby's
striking designs and practicality alleviated the need for separate
cooking dishes and more decorative plates for serving. Denby could
withstand oven temperatures and Gypsy (1971), Troubadour (1971),
Cotswold (1973) and Romany (1970's) all graced the 1970's table with
By the 1980's 'casual dining' became more
popular and ranges such as
Imperial Blue and Regency Green were able to fit into both formal
entertaining and family gatherings.
We continue to build on this proud
heritage with our contemporary
ranges such as Juice, Energy and Reflex which reflect today's informal
style. We owe much of our present success to the skills of earlier
generations of craftsmen. Most importantly, Denby has not lost sight of
the reasons for its popularity as generations have grown to expect
leading designs combined with a tradition of quality and durability.

slow fermenting and superfast, extreme ones. We spent a considerable
time sourcing the best grape concentrate factories and the best grapes
available for home winemaking and we designed ultra tight quality
control procedures right from the first production day. It was well
worth the effort - we are now the leading quality producer in Europe.
We are currently growing fast on the
export markets. With many new and
exciting homebrew products planned, we welcome export enquiries.
We are specialists in extreme turbo
yeasts for home distilling, super
quality wine and beerkits and of course our patented kegs for
In the UK we produce turbo yeast, beer
kits, homebrew kegs and
accessories. We supply the UK wine and beer homebrewing market through
wholesalers and selected retailers.
We have one of the most modern production
lines for wine kits, located
in Gothenburg, Sweden. This is where we mix different grape
concentrates, adjust sugars and acids etc before pasteurising and filling
into containers ready to be packed into the final box.

In the late 1980s, oil was virtually the
last choice for central
heating fuel where mains gas was not available. Oil was perceived as
dirty and smelly. The boilers themselves were large, unsightly and
noisy. Hedley Mickleburgh, using his 20 years' experience in the oil
heating industry, set out to design a boiler that would overcome all
these difficulties. The result, after years of research and
development, was the unique Wallstar.
The invention of the Wallstar finally
allowed people without a mains
gas supply to truly realise the benefits of oil central heating.
In 1990, Hedley joined forces with Jon
Sapey to form the HRM Boiler
Company. The superb design of the Wallstar boiler, coupled with
Hedley's innovation and Jon's management and marketing skills quickly
established HRM as the market leader in compact oil fired domestic
boilers. To this day, the Wallstar is unequalled in design, quality and
Wallstar is cleverly designed so that the
combustion equipment (burner,
oil lines etc) are housed behind the boiler within the thickness of the
house wall. This makes the boilers quiet, odour free and very compact.
Even though the Wallstar is ultra compact
in size there has been no
compromise on the efficiency of the unit. In fact HRM Boilers Ltd has
been so successful in the design of high efficiency boilers that it has
been awarded a $250,000 Research and Development project in conjunction
with the Department of Trade and Industry, through their S.M.A.R.T.
(Small Firms Merit Award for Research and Technology) scheme. The
objective of the project was to dramatically increase, even further,
the efficiency of oil fired equipment without any significant extra
cost to the end user.
During the late 1990s, most of HRM's
competitors introduced combination
boilers (combis). In response to the trend towards this type of
product, the company produced the Wallstar Combi. It was, and remains,
the only through the wall oil fired combi boiler on the market.
Increasing pressure to save fuel and
protect the environment led the
Government to introduce new regulations on the energy efficiency of
homes in 2002. This presented HRM with yet another challenge - to
further increase the efficiency of their already highly efficient
More research and development led to yet
another breakthrough in heat
exchanger design. Using the new design, HRM increased the efficiency of
their boilers by more than the required minimum to remain the market
leaders in this type of product.
The future is bright for HRM and all
those involved with it. The newest
addition to the Wallstar range is the Wallstar System boiler - the only
through the wall system boiler currently available. In addition to this
HRM is launching a new range of floorstanding oil fired boilers, named
"Weybourne". The first of this range of non-condensing domestic boilers
has a whopping nett efficiency figure of 93.6% - the most efficient
boiler of its class. Larger output models are due for release by 2004.
HRM Boilers continue to constantly
research and improve upon oil fired
boiler technology, with more new and original products scheduled for
the next three years.
