With design and innovation being two of the building blocks in which NYMAS has built our brand upon we are thrilled to announce that these will now take place in-house, through the work of the innovation department.
Product design and innovation is concerned with the design and development of new and innovative products. At NYMAS we feel it is imperative that all washroom equipment should not only be safe and functional, but also be ingenious and aesthetically pleasing amongst many more factors.
The department was created in November last year and has quickly undertook some exciting work which has great potential to help NYMAS in our mission to make bathing safe, accessible and dignified for all.
There is no better person to explain the impact of the departments role for NYMAS than Lawrence Stratton who heads up the department, and this is what he had to say.
“Being given the opportunity to create new products is exciting for most designers. But to be producing ideas and new designs that are of such benefit to the people that need them is truly rewarding. As well as creating new designs at NYMAS I am working to produce effective new product development processes that will ensure we supply the best products to our customers.
Since joining NYMAS I have contributed to some exciting projects and one of my first designs is now arriving on the market. Producing innovative new products requires prudent control of Intellectual Property (IP). To ensure this I have also been co-ordinating an IP review in conjunction with the Intellectual Property Office and our own specialist patent attorneys. This will help us protect our ideas and mean that we can continue to invest in the innovation we know will improve the lives of many.
Another rewarding project I am part of is a Knowledge Exchange Initiative with Teesside University. It was at Teesside that I gained my degree and recently I have helped to establish design challenges for students based around our industry. It’s an exciting time for me, my colleagues at NYMAS and our market sector whom we serve.”
