Short description of advertisement: 
A French SME has invented and designed a hand trolley system that clips onto a hoverboard to facilitate the transport of goods on foot. Its handles modulate the forward speed and makes it possible to brake if necessary.

The French company has entirely designed and patented a vertical welded metal system equipped with hand-operated brakes. Once clipped onto a hoverboard running with electricity, the new system is useful for transporting goods safely in front of you while walking (Picture 1). It is possible to attach goods using a fixing strap.

The French company is looking for an industrial partner to manufacture the whole new system. The vertical welded metal system can be made of steel (simple) or aluminium (lightweight). It is composed of 13 parts (Picture 2):
-part 1: handlebar
-part 2: gussets
-part 3: U tube
-part 4: folded sheet
-part 5: top cladding
-part 6: strap fixing plate
-part 7: long tubes
-part 8: rectangular tubes
-part 9: intermediate cladding
-part 10: shovel
-part 11: weld nut
-part 12: crimp nut
-part 13: crimp nut

In addition, the partner should attach two hand brakes on the handlebars as well as two non-slip rubber grips.

To begin with, the French company would like the partner to make a prototype. After validation of the prototype, a first order of 100 units is planned. Then, the quantities produced can go up to 10.000 units per year.

An industrial partner specialising in mechanics, mechanical welding and painting is needed to produce the new system. The French company is looking for a long-term partner based in Eastern Europe under a manufacturing agreement.
