Paul Crossen, managing director of 40-year-old engineering firm Crossen Engineering, says the diversification of his product portfolio during the Covid-19 pandemic has been something of a learning curve for him and his team.

"It's a different animal, creating your own products and marketing them," he says.

"Developing our own products has always been an aspiration but the pandemic has probably pushed us into it quicker."
