Redlands hygiene innovation: The 'foot pump station' from Shine Precision Industries

Foot Pump MainCleveland-based business Shine Precision Industries has started manufacturing an innovative 'foot pump station' that allows for hands-free hand sanitiser pumping and fits any size bottle of hand sanitiser.

This fabulous, innovative and easy-to-use product combines functionality, aesthetics, adaptability and health benefits.

The unit is stainless steel and portable, and does not need bolting to the floor. And because the mechanism is mechanical, it does not require batteries, and can be adjusted to suit any size bottle.

The product can be adapted to suit any requirement including use in schools for sunscreen. It is also available in a version that bolts onto walls as a more permanent feature. This is an idea that should survive the COVID-19.

Drone company Wing delivers the goods to Logan during lock-down

Logan and Canberra-based drone delivery company Wing is one business that has bucked the national trend during COVID-19 restrictions.

The company, which delivers a range of goods from local businesses to their customers including medication, food and other necessities, has seen demand for its services jump sharply during lock-down measures. It's now looking to expand product delivery types to include frozen meals and household essentials.

Wing's drones have wingpans of 1.5metres, weigh almost five kilograms and travel at more than 100 kilometres an hour.

Currently the company deliver goods on behalf of a range of Logan businesses including Browns Plains Hardware, Extraction Artisan Coffee, Crestmead Friendly Grocer, Harmony on Carmody Cafe and LSKD.


Logan's Evolve Group move into mask manufacturing to help combat COVID-19

The Evolve Group usually make everything from bee hives with taps to pools and tyre treads, but the COVID-19 crisis has given this Creastmead-based business a vital new purpose.

They've committed to manufacturing 60,000 P2/N95 respirators and medical masks (face masks) per day for three years, and longer if required. The masks are for frontline healthcare workers to help filter out fine particles.

The Evolve Group have been innovating and increasing capabilities for years now but this might be the most important move they've made. The Group’s Managing Director Ty Hermans said the company was used to solving complex engineering challenges, but this was ‘certainly our most important project’.

The Evolve Group’s leadership is a great example of innovation in the Logan region and is appreciated by all as we are impacted by COVID-19.
