A Flying Visit
In November, Datesand were treated to a visit from Pete Willan.
Pete has been working alongside Datesand for many years after bringing us some fantastic product ideas.
In 2001, Datesand started selling the NestPak, designed by Pete himself, which continues to be a favourite product still today as it conveniently offers bedding, nesting and environmental enrichment all in one package!
Most recently, Pete designed the C-Saw and submitted this into the 2019 Janet Wood Innovation Award… Not much has changed in almost 20 years!!
After careful judging and public voting, this brand-new product ended up as the runner-up of our previous competition and industry professionals all round are loving this new, versatile piece of enrichment.
This was a great opportunity for the team to talk with Pete about his design and also for Pete to get a first-hand look at the process Datesand had taken from his initial design to market-ready production.
