* Phil & Ted Green
ABC Adventure Buggy Company NZ Ltd
As designers, Phil & Ted Green are responsible for developing products that have spawned two successful businesses (Phil & Teds most excellent Buggy Company, and the Adventure Buggy Company) and initiated features which were possibly world firsts in design. From even the first proto-types developed in 1993, suspension was employed on a buggy (including the front swivel wheel) - providing a smooth, low impact motion. It is likely that this was the most sophisticated jogger buggy in use at that time.
The experience learnt from this initial "technical" design led to the pursuit of ergonomic simplicity. From this point Phil & Ted deliberately keep to the maxim "keep it simple", whilst creating their versatile products. Phil & Ted Green designed and produced the first (in the world) 3-wheeled buggies: swivel wheel (and locking swivel wheels), lay back positions for newborns, toddler seat attachments for siblings, extendable handles.
Ted trained and qualified as an Orthotist, whom specialize in corrective surgical appliances. Applying his knowledge in posture and anatomy, Ted has designed the baby slings for the various models produced over the past 15 years. Collaborating with his son Phil in every facet of improvement, their buggy designs have progressively refined to become what is now generally considered the ultimate buggy - The 'Everest'.
Phil Green has a broad business experience, designing and manufacturing his own unique products since 1985 (then only 19 years old). Prior to 1993, Phil designed portable, motorised spraying machines. Primarily used by garden centres and bowling clubs, the design culminated in a specialist line-marking machine. This unique time-saving device made its successful debut marking the lines for the first Rugby World Cup in 1987: at Eden Park, Auckland and Athletic Park, Wellington.
