    We were proud to sponsor a local student when they approached us to help fund in the manufacturing of his final year project.


    Andrew Appletons designs were based on animal skin patterns and drawing inspiration from Alexander McQueen and Mary Katrantzou who create the effect of texture through digital printing methods.


    We wish Andrew all the best for the future and good luck on his exhibition trip to New York where he will be showing his work to leading design companies at the Surtex design show.

  • Hartlepool Mail Newspaper Featuring Oracle Drive Systems
    23/07/2015


    A business is continuing to grow and take on staff thanks to its growing online presence.


    Hartlepool man John Mullins, 44, owns and runs Oracle Drive Systems as its managing director.


    He said: “We now have opened an online store and have taken on full-time staff to manage it. We are selling variable speed drives and automation products on here, and you can also buy engineering time, so you buy your drive and the engineering services time for us to come and install it and commissioning it for you.”


    Oracle’s success comes through its links with high-profile firms and through being a distributor for a US-based automation products firm.


     

    Mr Mullins said Oracle was “adding more products daily” to its website and has already taken orders from as far afield as Egypt.


    Its new additions to the team includes a senior projects engineer who lives in Sunderland and is “experienced in robots and visions systems”.


    Mr Mullins said staffing levels had now increased to eight, “including an apprentice who is studying full-time at Hartlepool College of Further Education”.


    Mr Mullins told how the company was going through really successful times.


    “We had an excellent year last year producing the second best results in our history, and so far since April we are on course to exceed our best sales turnover ever.”


    He said the company also had a full order book.


    Oracle Drive Systems has been trading since 2004 and was a self-funded venture.
