A growing group

Our target is for significant growth, both organically and strategically, to add value for our stakeholders and improve efficiencies and scale for our clients.

Our acquisition of Intelligent Product Solutions, the New York based ideation, design and engineering company, has already contributed significantly to both our strategic capabilities and revenue.

Additionally, we have partnered with Mooni®, a Swedish light and sound brand establishing Forward’s presence in the US retail sector. Their products combine illumination and sound, allowing people to transform ordinary spaces into beautiful experiences.

Our strategic objective is for continued growth. However, our ambition will not compromise our pursuit of excellence in design or manufacturing. Any future acquisitions or partnerships must fulfil our high standards by adding to an improvement in the quality of our product range and significant revenue growth.
