Newson Innovations was set up by Ken Newson in 2009 as a platform to launch a product that he had invented. Ken Newson is a time-served apprentice clock maker and qualified engineer. He has lengthy post-qualification experience of working with world-class organisations – Rolls Royce Gas Turbines, Rover Gas Turbines, Honeywell in Turbines and Fluidics (in the UK and USA) and as a Director of his own company Remek Fluidics.
Ken retired following a stroke in December 1999. He has occupied himself since that time by:
- Setting up a support group, Success After Stroke, now a registered charity in its own right.
- Setting up a registered charity, The Bridge Project, Sudbury, for the education of vulnerable adults.
- Engineering projects and developments – eg; building a racing car in first principle which he drove in Le Mans 2005 in the parade of Lotus Legends, and designing and building a pure water clock which is on public exhibition in Sudbury Suffolk.
Ken approached Mackman with the need for branding, company stationery and a website to support the development of, and awareness for his invention.
We worked closely with Ken to develop new branding that was then applied to his stationery suite. A new website and copy were provided following close collaboration with Ken and the staff at Mackman Group. The website was fully content managed using a platform that was scalable and suitable for future development. Training was provided on how to populate the site and make any future changes. All the work was provided on a pro-bono basis.
“I obtained a grant from EEDA to develop my invention but funds for other marketing materials were not available. Without the pro-bono help from Mackman group, I would not have had the logo, business cards, letterheads and website that I have today.”
