@ dot we are a dedicated team of competent, committed and experienced members headed by Anthony Harrison-Griffin providing a wealth of experience and expertise.
I'm passionate about innovation in all areas of technology, manufacturing and integration into finished product. With years of experience of bringing products to life, I understand how having a great idea is very much the easy part. Bringing it into market is the real challenge. One has to have an acceptance and understanding for the need of research and development, through the collaboration of minds and embracing the values of our ever changing and developing world. The brand has become in so many cases the primary element to achieve and maintain market position.
