The leading edge of technology is decorated with all manner of weird, wonderful and possibly useful ideas. We have computer watches, intelligent underpants and smart fridges. Now we even have the computer you wear like a pair of glasses (why it's not called 'Goggle' instead of 'Google Glass' is a mystery)…

1898 was quite a historic year the world over. New York City established its five boroughs, the Spanish American Civil War began, and the draft of the constitution of Australia was approved. It was also the year that L Arthur Transport Services Pty Ltd was established.

Two years ago, Business in Focus spoke to Simon Yudelevich about Guala Closures, the world’s leading manufacturer of screw caps for wine, spirits, soft drinks, olive oils and pharmaceuticals. At the time, the company was launching Viiva: a new bottle closure for full pressure sparkling wines. Since then, the awards have been pouring in and new innovations have been released.

ForPark Australia

Fit For Life »

Is Australia suffering from digital overload? It is not a good sign, after all, when schoolchildren are more likely to get texting thumbs than scraped knees. To be sure, Australia has changed a lot since Forpark was founded in 1979, but the playground and outdoor fitness equipment manufacturer is still performing exceedingly well.

Bee Dee Bags

Branding is in the Bag »

The name Bee Dee Bags is unlikely to ring a bell to even the most dedicated shopaholic. However, every Diva, Lorna Jane, Myer, Noni B and Rodney Clark customer in Australia has walked out of the store carrying one of the millions of bags supplied by this dynamic company. Not too shabby considering that the operation started out as a small family business in the bush.

When John S Larke landed on the shores of Australia in 1895, the land was still six years away from becoming a federation, when six independent British colonies would band together to become states of a new nation. Although the first fleet of settlers had arrived just over a century prior, in 1788, Australia soon became known for its natural beauty and many resources.
