WandsPro® the Beginnings...
We pride ourselves on being obsessive in our quest to create truly world class products which are as innovative as they are functional. Located at the Innovation Centre Sunshine Coast, WandsPro® is a family run business which has been inspired by our three co-founders passion for all things outdoors. We have hiked, camped and travelled all over the world, are active enthusiasts in a diverse range of adventure sports and have a passionate hunger for only the highest quality products that are designed to perform and built to last.
We’ve spent over five years designing, testing and prototyping our unique product range to ensure that all our products work to the highest specifications possible. Our aim is to exceed expectation in everything we do. Above all, our goal is to bring products to the market that our customers are excited to use.
We’re really excited to launch the world’s first ever Clip-together Crockery Range, ClipCroc®.
The ClipCroc Story...
BUT… during the journey, Rich & Lindsey found the constant rattle in the back of their SUV from their plates, dishes bowls and cups was driving them CRAZY! After stopping on the highway many times to re-organise the kitchen box and even resorting to wrapping clothes around the various rattling items, they finally decided they’d had enough!
*** THE PROBLEM ***
- *** Disposable / Single-use plates go to landfill!
- *** Reusable plastic crockery rattles & slides around!
- *** Reusable crockery lacks features, functions & innovation!
- *** Never a good time or place to wash up….making it too tempting to simply throw disposable crockery away 🙁
Silence and hassle-free travel trips... at last!
In September 2015 we joined our local Innovation Centre and purchased a CAD software program. Over the next 5 years we took the concept through the whole product development process from designing & prototyping to testing and tooling manufacture!
Finally, after 1000’s of samples and literally years of trying, ClipCroc® worked perfectly! Since then we have moved onto full production manufacture in Brisbane, Australia, and we have been supplying customers worldwide with ClipCroc® ever since!
ClipCroc® has arrived!
Personally, we believe ClipCroc® is the most user-friendly, feature-packed and functional plastic tableware on earth!
We only use the finest materials and the best Australian-made manufacture to ensure all ClipCroc® items are literally flawless and give nothing but the perfect Clip!
Our FDA-approved, BPA-free, virgin grade polypropylene is heat and scratch-resistant, high gloss, high strength, and built for longevity, performance, and endurance. We’ve also added UV and colour fasteners to ensure the ClipCroc® won’t “yellow” in the sunshine or the colours fade over time.
Since launch, we’re proud to say ClipCroc® has literally saved a MILLION single-use plastics from landfill and received fabulous reviews from our customers!
What inspired the ClipCroc® range? Our 4,500km car journey from Perth to Queensland was a very interesting learning experience for us. 6 days and nights of camping road trip, traveling along the Nullarbor Plains, stopping at various remote camping spots along the way, had us all frustrated and inspired. Why was it so difficult to stop our camping plates and bowls from rattling? Why did we start the journey with a lovely stack of 8 plastic plates and now we could only find 4? How were we going to store dirty dishes in the car until we found a washing-up facility? Our natural desire to find a solution to these common problems came into play and the journey was far from a silent one, not just because of the incessant rattling crockery, but more so from the bouncing around of ideas from our every waking moment.
Industrial Designer (MEng, CEng, MIMechE)
In 2016 I was inspired to do just that and haven’t looked back. WandsPro® was born and I’m excited every day to see the designs and prototypes of our outdoor range becoming a reality.
CEO: Marketing & Accounts (BSc hons)
I am a mad keen camper, fisher woman and adventure junkie. I’m a sucker for fitness and I love to travel…my inspiration craves it! Nothing makes me feel more present in life than when I’m scouring the planet for the next adventure on offer. I’ve sky dived Australia and Africa, walked with lions, mountain biked and hiked my share of miles around America, camping along the way.
Account Manager (BSc hons)
I jumped straight into the chance of co-founding a company whose sights are on innovating new products with unique designs for the outdoor market. I’m excited to wake up every day, passionate about what we do, and keen to entice others to follow their dreams.
