D3O named most innovative sport tech at CES 2015
“Any policies that will support the growth of science, engineering and technology, especially for young women, are helpful to businesses like D3O.”
Stuart Sawyer, D3O CEO

The Shadow Business Secretary gained a first hand insight into D3O’s patented impact protection technology when he visited the D3O Lab today. Touring the Lab, he heard about how D3O technology is helping to reduce the risk of injuries at work and in sport globally: from helmet liners to reduce the risk of traumatic brain injuries suffered by soldiers and US team sports players, to gloves which are reducing the risk and severity of hand injuries suffered by oil riggers.

He also spent time hearing about the work of some of D3O’s science, engineering, design and technology graduates. He also showed his faith in this great British high tech product by wrapping his hand in the D3O raw material and allowing CEO Stuart Sawyer to hit him with a mallet, which was captured on this video:



Stuart Sawyer, D3O CEO said:

It was a real pleasure to host the Shadow Business Secretary, Chuka Umunna MP today at D3O. Our scientists, engineers and design graduates really enjoyed meeting Chuka. They are the reason D3O has been able to treble in size over the last 3 years

In order to achieve our goal, to become a £50M business by 2017 and continue to export 90% of our sales, we need to continue to recruit high calibre world class talent. Any policies that will support the growth of science, engineering and technology, especially for young women, are helpful to businesses like D3O

Chuka’s enthusiasm for D3O products, which are all about protecting people and their things, was clear. Whether they are gloves for oil and gas workers, or revolutionary new helmet liners to reduce brain trauma or our amazing new material for mobile phone and tablet protection.
