Mako Designs Client – Bob Ginther

Over the past few months we’ve been following the story and success of one of our clients – Bob Ginther and his product invention produced by Mako Design and Invent, the Tri-plunger! Since the release and production of his product, Ginther has seen great commercial attention and success as more and more audiences are becoming aware and interested in his product. After coming to Mako Design and Invent and getting his product idea made, Ginther became his own salesman approaching other major retailers with propositions to sell the Tri-Plunger. Ginther saw great response as a number of various home hardware stores took interest and invested in several boxes of his product. Not soon after, the Tri-Plunger flew off store walls as the product was a huge success amongst consumers!

Watching the Growth of the Tri-Plunger

Since the release and success of his product, Bob has worked on re-developing his product with a strong material in order to be able to withstand force and have better suction. Not soon after the success of his product from shelves, Ginther featured on CBC News to talk more about the success of the Tri-Plunger! Our past blog gives an informative and brief account on Ginther’s coverage on CBC, but we were delighted to hear that Ginther was featured on another major news outlet!

From design to manufacturing your prototype, research the players involved

If you are hiring a professional design and development firm to create your product, do some research before selecting the firm. This also applies to the manufacturing stage of your product. You may need to work with multiple manufacturers for various parts of your product. Does the factory incorporate alternative sources of energy such as solar or wind into the manufacturing process? Are outputs and waste managed responsibly? Does it take steps to offset the CO2 produced during manufacturing?
