Maclaren’s heritage formed an important part of our work. We researched the history of the brand and of Owen Maclaren himself, which was integral to our project to launch the Spitfire buggy – a buggy we helped to design. Owen Maclaren invented the world’s first ever umbrella-fold buggy in 1965, he honed his engineering skills through his work on Spitfires in the war.
We also formed a strategic alliance on behalf of Maclaren with the Imperial War Museum at Duxford where we arranged for a fleet of Spitfire buggies to be available for the public to use. BBC Breakfast filmed at the museum and ‘saluted’ Owen Maclaren for his ‘service to the RAF and mums and dads across the world’.
excellent job you have done for us.
