John Patrick

John studied and graduated in architecture at Liverpool University where he gained an interest and understanding in the value of design. Following three years travelling the world he returned to the UK to go into business, initially as a small company printing circuit boards for the electronics industry that progressed to sub-contract electronics manufacture for the UK market, with over 60 repeat and high profile clients and fifty staff.

In 2013, John identified the potential of an air sampling pump that is used in areas where asbestos contamination is a risk, particularly on building demolition and development. C-Tech has redesigned the product to improve its ease of use and reliability, and is preparing a worldwide launch under its new brand name, Airbox.

John’s experience of driving good design to improve products and company profitability, combines with his long standing interest in architecture to inform reForm’s business direction and success.
