Request For Quote: Brewster Enterprises 1234 W. City Center Drive Las Vegas, NV, 89161 Andrew J. Brewster, CEO

Brewster Enterprises has just developed a breakthrough cleaning product that will revolutionize the house-hold cleaning industry. Science-Clean is a fully organic Cleaning compound made from Soy, Coconut, and Flaxseed extract that will clean any and all surfaces in the typical household. Unlike our competitors’ products, Science-Clean is safe and effective in all environments and is not harmful to pets or humans, plants or other biological materials. Science-Clean will not harm or stain glass, wood, marble, metal, plastic, or fabric finishes. We have received full EPA approval and certification for our break-through product and are now embarking on an aggressive marketing campaign and will begin distribution in Major US Markets in the summer. We need a package and dispensing device that will reflect the innovative breakthrough of the chemistry that is Science-Clean that will make our product easy to use, fun to use, and will have the Brand recognition we need to place us squarely in the bid to compete with much larger and more established companies. The product is superior, so the package needs to be so too. We would like to request a quote from your organization for designing this new package and would appreciate a response from you with full timing and cost detailed by 11:30am, EST on Friday, January 25th. The total design and research project will need to be completed by early March to allow tooling for the package to be completed in time for our early summer product launch and national advertising. If you have any questions regarding the details of the request, please do not hesitate to contact our Director of Marketing, David Allendorph, at 260-579-3827. Looking forward to seeing your quote soon. Regards, Andrew J. Brewster, CEO

Trim Track

With the Quick-Click Trim Track system, removing your molding is a snap! The Quick-Click Trim Track allows for the easy removal and/or installation of floor molding without any risk of damage or breakage. The Quick-Click Trim Track includes both the permanent track that is assembled with the wall frame at the time of building, and the attachment track that can be nailed or screwed to the back of t store ready floor moulding. The Quick-Click Trim Track also allows for the extra space necessary for easy floor re-installation, making your home renovation worries a thing of the past.

Taken For Development

Furniture Problem : Optional Standing /Mobile Alternative • Prolonged sitting can cause permanent damage to fragile spinal structures, and cause chronic pain, thus reducing student/employee efficiency and overall motivation.

• Prolonged sitting and inactivity is at fault for the rise of obesity and other health problems that are common today.

Molded Storage Hook

Drink and multistorage shelf Simply step on the foot pedal to raise the desk/ chair combo and create a compact work station with convenient storage shelf.

Task Chair

Easy To Fold Chair

Hinging Chair Arm

Concept 3 This concept recognizes the problem of perpetual inactivity during work or study and creates a versatile desk that acts as both a sitting desk and a standing work station. A fold and stow away seat that becomes a shelf creates a very functional solution for today’s multitasking, active student or professional.

Functional Model

A fully functioning, scale model was built in order to demonstrate the adjustable height, single weight bearing caster, folding storage seat and overall mobility of the design concept.

Construction Issues

Double barrel PVC creates a swivel seat.

Drilled and glued dowel holds PVC arm steady and allows for rotation.

Glued PVC T creates a stable, non-rotating arm. In order to secure seat hinge, a wood stabilizer and glue covered screws were used. Non-skid rubber lining was added to PVC hinges to minimize caster leg wobble.
