That Lightbulb Moment.

LightbulbWhere and when do most of us get our best ideas? Many surveys have been carried out to try and answer this question.

Not surprisingly “in the shower” tops the list. This is closely followed by “in the bath”.

Perhaps the most famous example of aquatic inspiration is Archimedes. He was a Greek philosopher, mathematician and inventor who lived from 287 to 212 BC. His best known scientific discovery was the law of hydrostatics, often known as Archimedes’ Principle. Google awaits if you really want to find out more about it.

 However what everyone does remember is what Archimedes shouted as he stepped into his bath and the idea came into his head. “Eureka!” he exclaimed, meaning “I have found it!” He also had many other ideas in his lifetime but history does not record his utterances on those occasions.

 Now, you may be asking, what on earth has all this got to do with made to measure shelving? Well, it’s all to do with ideas, of course.

 Sometimes when prospective clients get in touch with us, they have a clear idea as to what they want. Perhaps we should conduct a survey and find out when and where they got their idea, or perhaps not! All we have to do then is to turn their idea into reality and our customer feedback tells us that we do a good job of this.

 On other occasions clients may have no clear idea at all of what they want. In those cases they rely on us to come up with an idea and solution that will suit their needs.

 It is of course a trade secret as to how we come up with our “Eureka!” moments. However why not benefit from our experience and ideas and see if we can solve your storage problem?
