Nutshell Corporation PR Release on Sponsorship
31st October 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Techvana – The New Zealand Computer Museum is proud to announce that Nutshell Corporation has become its fourth corporate sponsor.
Nutshell is the latest company to get in behind the formation of the Techvana computing museum in Auckland. Nutshell delivers a unique range of top quality made-in-New Zealand holsters and cases for mobiles to customers world-wide.
Since its creation in 1997 by tech journalist Ian Miller (think Bit ‘n’Bytes, Computerworld and the Auckland Sunday Star Times) to explore fledgling Internet eCommerce opportunities, and focus on proving high quality locally produced product to safeguard an emerging handheld industry, Nutshell has generated over four million dollars in export revenue through direct sales to an international consumer customer base. The company’s range of high quality locally made leather holsters and cases now support over 600 handheld devices, from the earliest PDAs to today’s most advanced Smart technologies. Today Nutshell is one of a handful of vendors supplying wireless accessories to Amazon.com and is the only one in Australasia. “What began as an experiment in harnessing the World Wide Web has become a global brand that specialises in providing secure carry solutions for a constantly developing market,” says Mr Miller.
In recent years Nutshell has focussed on developing high quality product using innovative techniques and incorporating unique local content.
” New Zealand is unique in the world as a source of a natural antistatic material. Nutshell is well placed to deliver products that harness the positive sides of the possum to meet demand for increasingly sophisticated protection for the global handheld community,” says Miller.
“It is important to save the history of a technology,” says Nutshell MD Ian Miller. “I applaud the efforts of Techvana and its founders to create a museum of computer history.”
