Hanton Innovation was established by Chris Hanton in July 2010. Chris graduated with a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Bath in the summer of 2011.
Monty Hanton is a Labrador Collie cross. He took time out of his busy engineering schedule to pose for a portrait, which drawn by artist and illustrator Lauren van Niekerk and is now the logo for Hanton Innovation.
As for Hanton's Innovations here on Shapeways, its currently a Wednesday afternoon and over my lunch break I came across this site. I set up a shop, uploaded a few CAD models I had knocking around on my hard drive and am just going to see what happens! Maybe design and upload something new every lunchtime? Now there would be a challenge :p
