Mandy and I emigrated to Ontario, Canada from England in 1988 with our two young daughters.
I am an electrician by trade and have always had an interest in inventing. Mandy is not only my best friend and soul mate but she is also our bookkeeper as I am self employed.
We spent our first 19 years in Canada living in the Greater Toronto area but moved north to live in the lakeside town of Wasaga Beach 11 years ago, a  more relaxed area that has the longest fresh water beach in the world.
We are both very excited to launch the Pull Cord Buddy and truly hope it will be the answer for the many who experience difficulty starting their machine.
We are also proud to say that the key parts of the Pull Cord Buddy kit, namely the pulley, stirrup, crossbar tube and pull cord, are all manufactured locally.
