Batavia engaged Whistle to develop their flagship mini circular saw – the “Maxxsaw”. Whistle ‘s role was to develop the product from concept sketch right through to production-ready CAD suitable for manufacturing handover. A key focus for the mini-saw design was to improve user ergonomics and safety around the cutting disc.
The Maxxsaw is also the first in a new line of products for Batavia to display their new design DNA developed by Whistle. To support future brand development and expansion, Whistle also delivered a detailed Product Design Guide that clearly defined the new design direction and will assist designers and manufacturers for future Batavia product developments.
