Inventions that changed industries


Inventions that changed industries

Where would we be without inventions? Bill Gates, Tim Berners-Lee, James Dyson and Steve Jobs. These are just a few of the names of some of the greatest inventors. On this day in 1997, Steve Jobs was appointed CEO of Apple. It was a change that the company needed, as they were slowly falling in market share. Steve Jobs proceeded to revamp the company and its products, which led to the release of the iPhone in 2007.


One of the greatest inventions:

The Apple brand and in particular the iPhone are one of the most talked about products in the entire world. Since the first release, we have seen various new iPhones announced, with the iPhone 13 being announced only just this week. In 2020, data showed that over 2.2 billion iPhones have been sold since 2007. The iPhone paved the way for the phone industry by pushing out feature phones and replacing them with smartphones.  It also allowed for new companies to come up with their own versions of a smartphone. But, the likes of Samsung, Huawei and Google have all got their own smartphones, which are constantly being innovated to try and gain an advantage over each other.


Inventions that have benefitted EWFM:


Swivel Joints: These are some of our best selling products. They are designed to relieve stress and torsion on hose or pipe work preventing damage. Throughout the years we have seen various new series introduced and different versions such as the compact swivel joint.

Drum Filling Heads: Part of our range of filling and emptying equipment; the drum filling head is perfect for casks, IBC’s and barrels. It has an automatic sensor built in to prevent containers from overfilling. This innovative idea allows for workers to do other tasks without worrying about waiting by the container.

Access Systems: Our range of access systems includes folding stairs, folding platforms and gantry stands. All of which are designed to ensure employees are working in a safe environment. We have seen vast changes and modifications to these to make them even safer.


We wouldn’t be where we are in the world right now if it wasn’t for the innovative minds of individuals. At EWFM, we are constantly trying to innovate to ensure that we continue to provide a quality product and service to our customers.
