Engino.net Ltd was founded in 2004 by Costas Sisamos in Cyprus. With degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Education, Costas worked for 10 years in Primary schools teaching Design & Technology. With a vision to inspire his students to become better problem solvers and future innovators, Costas started designing a new system of modular connectors that would enable students to build fast and easy fully functional technological models.
The award of research capital by European Union supported the first 3 years of development and the first ENGINO sets were launched in 2007 attracting the interest of international toy buyers and educational specialists. The patented ability of the system to snap fit on multiple locations while maintaining simple manufacturing methods was a feature that unleashed great potential. Since the launch, the system has received several local and international awards, while the company’s R&D team continues to develop new innovations taking ENGINO to the 3rd generation of construction toys. Now, with a product range of more than 60 different sets, ranging from simple structures and mechanisms to solar energy sets and wireless robotics, ENGINO® is one of the fastest growing companies in the field. This success is reflected in the recent expansion to a new fully automated factory in Cyprus, setting new standards for production in Europe by introducing vertical integration from conception to manufacturing and retail.
