And here we are already, for this week’s fun fact. We say ‘already’ as it’s a busy week here in the office. Following the meticulous work on a patent application last week, we focus on tweaking the drawings accordingly. A patent is only as good as its first claim. Having worked on developing the product over the past 18 months, it’s exciting progress as we edge closer to getting the product to market. You can find out more about our Product Design service on our website, or we always welcome a call – 01373 801 803.

So back to the fact … on this day in 1976, the first space shuttle ‘Enterprise’ was completed. The first launch was in 1981. I remember watching the launch and the landing as an 11-year-old in complete awe. From a young age, I was always fascinated by such feats and how things worked. So much so that I pursued my passion and began my career in engineering. I started out being very hands-on – sheet metal work and tool making. This practical experience has been invaluable and only enhances my CAD work. I progressed to Senior Design Engineer roles in global medical device companies for over 20 years.

From there, I decided to go solo and opened White Horse CAD. My experience, knowledge, problem-solving ability, and quality of work remain at the forefront of everything we do at the business. Our medical field design work continues alongside clients from various industries. Most recently,  a lighting specialist, a youth development charity, and a tool manufacturer. So as you can read, we like the variation and challenges our clients present. If you have an idea you’d like to ‘launch,’ please get in touch as we’d love it hear from you.
