With passion and interest in mechanical engineering, Simon Wachira, head of engineering at Gearbox, built the Hybrid CNC (Computer Numerical Control): a CNC that is both a pro-cut (plasma CNC) and pro-curve (router CNC) for Gearbox.

He worked with his company, Proteq Automation Limited, that is on the forefront of offering the latest industrial automation technology, industrial machine manufacture and product development among others.

This CNC cut costs to a third as compared to purchasing a CNC for each and fitted effortlessly on a relatively smaller space.

Simon believes in borrowing technology to make things that meet a customers desire.
