Entrepreneur: Simon Lyons

Business: Version 22

Location: Swallow

Business Description

Version 22 designs, manufactures and sells innovative consumer houseware products through department stores and direct to customers online. One of the business’ first products is Nimble, a safe and easy to use finger tool that cuts open awkward packaging with ease, whether this is difficult food and drink packaging such as milk carton tops or microwave meals, or more stubborn packaging like the infamous clam-shell. Nimble is designed to enable people with hand related disabilities, such as arthritis, to use the product to open food and drink packaging independently. Version 22 will manufacture all of its products within the UK to support local businesses and promote home-grown manufacturing talent.
