A UK London based business is looking for manufacturing agreements for a new trolley designed specifically to transport gas cylinders for domestic and leisure use.
A UK company has designed a gas cylinder trolley that is easily assembled, protects the cap of the cylinder and has an adjustable handle.
There are a number of reasons for use of gas cylinders across the world, with vast numbers relying on no mains gas such as for barbecues and caravans/mobile homes in the UK and in the vast areas of many continents where there is no piped gas supply. The trolley is designed specifically to protect the cap area and valve of the cylinder which, if damaged makes the whole cylinder unusable. The adjustable height of the trolley handle also means that it can make transportation easy for people of all heights. The currently available trolleys are often expensive and difficult to assemble, whilst also not offering protection against damage to the cap of the cylinder during transportation.
The new trolley design is simple and so will reduce the costs of production and the purchase price.
The company seeks partners to enter into manufacturing agreements with companies that have experience of producing trolleys or other aluminium or steel framed products
- Type of partner sought: The business seeks partners with experience of producing trolleys and other aluminium or steel framed products and businesses with a distribution supply chain
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The business seeks partners to enter into manufacturing agreements with companies that have experience of producing trolleys and other aluminium or steel framed products.
A new design that protects the cap and valve, whilst also making transportation easier and safer for people of all heights. The trolley also allows cylinders to be carried in a car boot without risk of damage to either the car boot or the cylinder.
