    Event description

    The nandin Innovation Centre shines the spotlight on ModularWalls, a startup success story growing and developing in the heart of the Sutherland Shire. Success doesn't come without challenges so if you are thinking about a startup venture (or are in one), come along and learn about Nick Holden's journey:

    Like every inventor before him, he asked himself; is there a better way? And there was.

    In 2003, Nick Holden was refused council approval for a rendered brick front wall; rather than take this as the final answer, he took on this challenge. Nick created a product that emulated the high-end aesthetic of a rendered brick wall, yet satisfied council requirements; and thus, the Modular Wall was born.

    From this single invention followed an international industry disruption; ModularWalls has since experienced rapid growth, with Nick fervently leading the quest for continual innovation and investment in R&D, rarely taking no for an answer. ModularWalls quickly became an Australian manufacturing success story, establishing a national footprint with a suite of new and disruptive residential and commercial products, with emerging exports to NZ, the US and now with a manufacturing plant UK.

    As Founder and Head of Innovation, Nick is dedicated to the improvement and evolution of every facet of the business, leading the market through cutting-edge IT processes, lean manufacturing practices and state-of-the-art, custom-built machinery. Come find out how one inventor disrupted an entire industry, made the world stand up and take notice, and what is next for the Modular revolution.
