Owen Maclaren, a former test pilot and aeronautical engineer, was
inspired by the birth of his first grandchild to invent the umbrella-fold
buggy. His portable, lightweight yet sturdy invention liberated parents
from the bulky, cumbersome pram, revolutionising baby transport and
becoming an iconic design. The company he created continues to lead the
industry in innovation, quality and design, offering high performance,
stylish wheeled goods, accessories, toys and organic, holistic personal
care products for mother and baby. M
