Event description

The nandin Innovation Centre shines the spotlight on ModularWalls, a startup success story growing and developing in the heart of the Sutherland Shire. Success doesn't come without challenges so if you are thinking about a startup venture (or are in one), come along and learn about Nick Holden's journey:

Like every inventor before him, he asked himself; is there a better way? And there was.

In 2003, Nick Holden was refused council approval for a rendered brick front wall; rather than take this as the final answer, he took on this challenge. Nick created a product that emulated the high-end aesthetic of a rendered brick wall, yet satisfied council requirements; and thus, the Modular Wall was born.

From this single invention followed an international industry disruption; ModularWalls has since experienced rapid growth, with Nick fervently leading the quest for continual innovation and investment in R&D, rarely taking no for an answer. ModularWalls quickly became an Australian manufacturing success story, establishing a national footprint with a suite of new and disruptive residential and commercial products, with emerging exports to NZ, the US and now with a manufacturing plant UK.

As Founder and Head of Innovation, Nick is dedicated to the improvement and evolution of every facet of the business, leading the market through cutting-edge IT processes, lean manufacturing practices and state-of-the-art, custom-built machinery. Come find out how one inventor disrupted an entire industry, made the world stand up and take notice, and what is next for the Modular revolution.

Morning tea will be provided after this presentation.
