Alan Pegram, managing director of Global Display, will present the company's Eco mannequin on Dragon's Den this weekend, seeking investment for the product, which they hope will revolutionise the world of mannequins. Pegram will be facing the tough dragons seeking investment for the patented solution, which could replace fibreglass as a manufacturing process.
'This started out as a bucket list aspiration but after we went through the application process we started to realise just what a great opportunity this was to gain full recognition for the hard work we have done in developing an eco-friendly mannequin and to showcase the importance of the VM industry in retail. It felt right to share this with the world with the opportunity to turn it into a profitable business,' says Pegram.
The episode will air this Sunday 8 October on BBC Two at 8pm.
