"I had the opportunity to develop several concepts with Ignitec over the past 12 months. Ben provided a base (at the Ignitec offices) for us to really get creative and produce together some really next generation designs for Creo Medical. The Ignitec team have all been a pleasure to work alongside over the past 12 months and I wish them all the very best. I look forward to our paths crossing again soon for further collaborations!"
