In 1987 we created Video Graphic Systems to exploit the video graphics market. In addition to manufacturing rack-mount computers, we also developed a range of software packages that linked the standard computer to the video world. Although reasonably successful, it became apparent by mid-1989 that the market we were pursuing was not maturing fast enough.
As part of our creative work, we turned to designing rack-mount furniture. Specifically made for the video industry which received high praise for its refreshing approach and with much encouragement we. In 1990 we developed the Nigel B.
