Why Dreadnought? Why not!?

[dred-nawt]

1. A person that fears nothing
2. One that is among the largest and most powerful of its kind

Dreadnought is made in Great Britain for the men of USA and Canada.

1. Where are you located?

Plymouth, England.

2. When did you start this business?

June, 2012.

3. What is Dreadnought and when did you realize that this is what you wanted to pursue?

Dreadnought is a men’s grooming company that mixes age old methods with contemporary engineering. We spotted that there was a market for a new youthful brand that could attract new traditional shavers that might be put off by the more traditionalist brands on the market.

 4. Describe a few steps you took to make this happen.

A massive amount of R and D went into creating products, packaging and story – Only once we were 100% happy with this did we decide to go ahead.

5. How would you deal with a customer who didn’t know what they wanted?

Impartial advice – shaving is a complex subject with many variables, get to know the customer and see what their needs may be.

6. What are some of your accomplishments as a business?

Winner of the About.com award for Best Razor (Spartan) and Best Shaving Cream – 2012 and 2013 respectively.

 7. What do you believe makes a quality product?

Quality ingredients and an eye for detail.

8. Where do you get your inspiration from?

The Founder of Dreadnought is an ex Royal Marine and thus grooming was an essential part of everyday life – we wanted a product that was not only Manly to honor this, but also suit the needs of real men.

9. What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?

Don’t give up after the first hurdle, or the 100th for that matter.

Bison: Designed for Life

bisonmadelogo

Bison products are true marvels of modern engineering’  The Bison product line is designed, sourced and handcrafted in the U.S.A. Great care and research was put into the design, production and quality of all Bison products. Bison products really are designed for life!

We had the privilege of interviewing the owners of  Bison and hear what really happens before their products get the stamp of approval.

1. Where are you located?

Phoneix, Arizona

2. When did you start this business?

http://www.BisonMade.com was started in 2012.

3. What is Bison and when did you realize that this is what you wanted to do?

We are a manufacture of lifestyle accessories for me and we decided that manufacturing these types of products would be a  goal in 2010.

4. Describe a few steps you took to make this happen.

We scoured the Los Angeles area for old factories and equipment to learn how great products were made the old fashioned way. Then we designed processes to utilize both old and modern equipment so we can make the high precision quality products.

5. How would you deal with a customer who didn’t know what they wanted?

Inquire on taste and needs and inform them of the options.

6. What do you believe makes a quality product?

Good design and good raw materials.

7. Where do you get your inspiration?

I got my entrepreneurial inspiration from this book The man and his wonderful shaving device. I drew an incredible amount of inspiration from the Gillette Safety Razor Company and how they operated throughout the 20th Century. They were a key stone of American Industrialism and high quality consumer products. Design inspirations come from random sources: morphology of trees, fish and various other species, rock formations and tail lights of high end cars.
