Given a choice in the process of designing and manufacturing products, Simon Fallows and Jeff MacIntyre, founding partners of Grappleworks™, choose to take an innovative approach with their product design & marketing strategy. First, rather than rebrand and re-market low-cost merchandise, Grappleworks™ chose to collaborate with internationally-awarded industrial designer, Joseph Hofer. The goal being to create modern updates to everyday classics, which started with a screwdriver intended to maintain the modern home. Affirmation came after receiving the first of many International Design Awards, but adding another product in a World saturated with new products was not enough.
“Associating products with a charitable cause gives the products another dimension, making the purchase more meaningful and purposeful, benefiting the Retailer, Consumer and the Cause.
Simon Fallows, Grappleworks
