🏋hello to Scott and Genevieve. Two awesome local innovators.🏋

They own Northern Ultralight (tag) and create ultralight backpacking equipment, right here in the Koots. 

They’ve backpacked a combined distance of over 20,000 kilometers over the course of just three years. A big source of inspiration for starting their company. 🎒

And a big source of inspiration for us too…

Scott has been using the state-of-the-art equipment available at MIDAS Lab (like our laser cutter) to prepare raw materials for production, and increase the efficiency and precision of their manufacturing process.

🌿 “As a small manufacturing business, we often have to think outside the box to find solutions to the unique challenges we are faced with. Our first solution may not be perfect, but we are consistently striving to improve over time. To me, this is what innovation is all about: embracing an evolutionary mindset.” 🌿

Thanks Scott.
