In Singapore, land is scarce: most of Singaporeans don’t have a space, a garage to create, to make. When Mr. Low, Director of Home-Fix, a Singaporean retail company, found out the potential of the maker movement, he decided to play a part to foster that latter.
That’s how 5 years back, he kickstarted XPC as a small department of Home-Fix. His objective? To create different experiences for their customers in their DIY spaces.
According to Mr. Low, in a more and more collaborative economy, there’s no need any more to buy equipment, material or tools to make. Sharing is the key.
Thanks to XPC, makers, tinkerers, inventors and hackers from Singapore can enrich their skill sets through a variety of technology and manual workshops and access a co-working space and cutting-edge machines.
If you step in XPC, you’ll see all sorts of makers specialized in furniture refurbishment, musical instruments creation, DIY kits development or surfboard making.
