Middlesbrough engineer hoping to win challenge

08 May 2014

A family firm will be singing in the rain if their invention captures the imagination of the public

We were featured on GazetteLive recently.

"The idea of a Middlesbrough engineer who currently works in the desert, Clothesmac is a self-contained washing line featuring a waterproof hood allowing air-dried laundry even in England’s inclement weather.

Paul Adams is currently an F1 project manager working in 55 degrees of heat in Abu Dhabi with his wife Pauline.

He came up with the idea of Clothesmac as the answer to an age-old problem of drying your washing outside, even in the wet.

His daughter Amanda, 19, has spent her gap year bringing the invention to market with the help of her partner Chris Clark, 18.

The couple impressed judges in the Evening Gazette’s If We Can, You Can challenge, run by the Entrepreneurs’ Forum, with a pitch that secured their place in the final.

Amanda is hoping that Gazette readers will vote online to see her crowned If We Can, You Can entrepreneur of the year, securing a prize worth at least £17,000 in investment, mentoring and professional advice from Forum partners Rivers Capital, Yorkshire Bank, Onyx, Ward Hadaway and PwC.

“Pitching to the panel was a great experience which has already helped us move forward, providing us with contacts we never could have secured without it,” said Amanda.

“Our Clothesmac products are currently made in Dubai but dad wants it all to be based in the UK."
