Ian St. John
Founder, Design & Project Manager
I wanted to become a Mechanical Engineer from a young age and developed a passion for engineering from
spending my youth at my Father's Car Mechanics garage.
Throughout further education I learnt the principles of mechanical engineering, manufacture and design.
Over the years my passion for engineering design grew and today I offer my services and experiences to you.
Today, I still enjoy getting the use of a Milling Machine or a Lathe to create a part, but I am more often found
behind my Laptop with 3D modelling software designing the next project,no matter the size or function.
I am a big F1 fan and enjoy the racing but love the technology and design. 2014 was a fantastic year in which
I was able to visit both the McLaren Technology Centre and Mercedes AMG F1 Factory.
I'm pictured holding the 2014 Winning Constructor Trophy from the USA Grand Prix.
I draw inspiration from these sources and try to apply myself in the fashion they would expect and
deliver to you a successful design.
