Over a decade ago a new sheet metal technology emerged; allowing intricate models to be created and built. Wist Plastic & Metal Technology (now WiST Group), a specialist sheet metal manufacturer, launched the world’s first ‘metal-etched’ toy. With easy-to-follow instructions and simple, snap-together assembly, incredibly detailed models could be constructed in minutes.
WiST’s continued investment in the technology cemented its popularity and in 2016, now rebranded Piececool, innovated a Multi-Colour Electroplating process to ensure that to this day, Piececool continues to be a market leader and grow the brand on the global stage.
At about the same time, a vision to create a high quality, configurable construction block was being realised.
