Commercial activities started by way of working with existing manufacturers to help
improve, expand and develop new and existing ranges.
With many of those activities in specialist sporting equipment including kayaks,
paddles, clothing and safety equipment, Clyde’s Polo Kit (our original identity)
went on to retail many of these lines with some in-house manufacturing using composite
This included buying an existing Canoe/Kayaking Paddle Manufacturing Business, which
was then developed, re-branded and subsequently sold on, some years later.
As a commercial venture Clyde’s Polo Kit was chiefly interested in Specialty Sporting
Equipment, but despite this, many clients in the Academic Research Industry sought
our help in various projects.
With increasing numbers of clients from this newer area of interest, it was felt
more appropriate to start afresh with a new identity to allow creative scope for
new directions, which still require innovation and creativity, two things which we
hold very dear to our own hearts.
As a result, Specialty Development was created.
The two sides of this entity are very much alive with the sporting side of things
currently concentrating on the distribution of CPS Blades throughout the UK, while
the Scientific Research side has now taken on a new association with Rogue Resolution
who now distribute our products, specifically within the Neuroscience sector, while
all other areas are covered directly by Specialty Developments.
We hope these developments are not at all confusing, but welcome direct communication
at any stage of your enquiry.
