As Mel says, "put a good-un on a bucket with a twig and they empty it!"
The rest of us need all the help we can get, so started Octoplus in 1988. Since then 600,000 main frames have been sold along with all the accessories.
2002 saw the introduction of Multifit to suit the square, round or octagonal leg on various imported or home manufactured seat boxes.
2009 saw the birth of StrongBox and SuperStool with the unique double square leg, then in 2011 we introduced Retrofit, a clamp-on system of accessories to suit StrongBox of SuperStool.
2012 saw the introduction of the StrongBox T.R. and SuperStool T.R. With T.R. standing for "Tie Rod", this 6mm stainless steel rod securely fastens the the chassis sections together, greatly enhancing the strength and in our opinion making the chassis "bullet proof".
2013 Octoplus merges with What More UK who are one of the biggest designers and manufacturers of plastic products in Europe. 'The perfect marriage to take Octoplus to the next stage of its developement' says Mel.
So 25 years on, Mel says, if we don't design it or make it here in the UK, we don't sell it!
