Innovation is in our DNA. The origins of Day & Zimmermann date back to 1901 and a mere seven years after our founding, the company was working on one of the most significant human engineering achievements of the twentieth century—the construction building of the Gatun Lock system of the Panama Canal. By the 1960s, Day & Zimmermann was assisting with the design of the Mercury and Gemini capsules that would put the first American astronauts in space. These history-altering projects had ties right here in Philadelphia.

While our past achievements built our strong foundation, we’ve not only sustained over time but have thrived and have new and exciting developments on the horizon. Today we are entering a new era of transforming the way our customers and staff, build, streamline and secure their future.

Yoh, our staffing division is helping to place workers in cutting-edge fields like software development, life sciences, healthcare and IT. Our engineering, construction and maintenance division is using new technologies, processes and systems to create efficiencies for power and industrial plants. We even recently acquired a new cybersecurity capability. Like in the earlier days working on the Panama Canal, we’re looking at a series of history-changing projects that in summation will push us and our country forward.

ROBRADY DESIGN – “Any Sufficiently Advanced Technology is Indistinguishable from Magic”

ROBRADY - Vectrix Superbike
ROBRADY - Vectrix Superbike


“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

Sir Arthur C. Clarke, Scientist, Author, Futurist


Rob Brady, CEO / founder, ROBRADY desing

In Florida’s Suncoast region, ROBRADY design has been producing things out of thin air for over two decades. Via their continually refined process of research, design, engineering, prototyping, testing, and manufacturing – what they coax into reality is at once exciting, innovative, and disruptive. Yet, it is always something more.

“We humanize technology.”

Rob Brady, CEO /founder, ROBRADY design

After graduating from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles and beginning his professional career with the Cigarette Racing Team in Miami, Rob Brady foundedROBRADY design, a multidisciplinary design and development studio, in 1990. From his work in marine design, he quickly expanded his focus and team into diverse market sectors: transportation, consumer/electronics, industrial, medical, and graphic/interactive, collaborating with clients to identify the greatest areas of opportunity for producing innovative designs that drive profitable results.Yet, no matter what project the studio undertakes, all the work shares one common trait: it exists at the nexus of organic and OMG.

Walking through the ROBRADYcomplex in the sultry Sarasota heat, it’s easy to be captivated by the studio’s industrial chic interior and displays of sleek, futuristic projects that look like something from Syd Mead’s garage. It’s easier still to be impressed by the on-siteCNC machines, 3D printers, welders, and more. Thesetools allow the studio to transform sketches into CAD drawings and physical prototypes faster than ever before—in some cases, a matter of hours. Yet, the studio’s physical assets only tell part of the story. The studio’s personnel roster is a deep bench of expertise and experience,not just in design, engineering, and manufacturing, butalso in material science, management, marketing, and regulatory guidelines. ROBRADY’sacumen allows it to navigate the regulatory environment of agencies such as the Department of Transportation, the American Medical Association, the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Communication Commission, and the FDA.

Yet, afinished product does not mean a job completed.ROBRADY’s standing in the design field is in large part to its perspective that invention and innovation are not enough. There must also beintention. In other words, how will the design be implemented for maximum impact and benefit?Beyond understanding the needs and concerns of all stakeholders, ROBRADYknows how a product will be introduced to market. The studio mantra of research to reality very often includes a third step, retail. To better support and realize their clients’ visions, the studio formed ROBRADY capital to provide support and management for particularly promising ventures.

ROBRADY - New-Holland rustler

ROBRADY’s capacity to rapid prototype elements of the FORTIS exoskeleton dramatically reduced the development timetable. In some instances, testing could be performed on physical prototypes within hours of their design, saving significant time and expense and contributing in large part to the success of the project. The studio garnered multiple awards for the work on FORTIS, including “Best of the Best” from internationally recognized Red Dot Design.

Customer loyalty and admiration aside, the studio has become a familiar and critically acclaimed presence on the global stage. It has amassed an impressive and constantly growing list of accolades from organizations including: Red Dot Design, the International Design ExcellenceAward (IDEA), Good Design, Universal Design, The Medical Design Excellence Award, SPARK, and Designpreis Deutschland. Each attest to ROBRADY design’s commitment not only to being a leader in the field of design, but to delivering on its vision to humanize technology and having a positive effect on our world.

ROBRADY’s collaboration with Ziivaa, LLC is a clear example of the studio’s commitment to their client. From design work on the revolutionary belt to development of the brand name, packaging, international regulatory certifications, a suite of intellectual property and launch of the company, ROBRADY design was there for Ziivaa, LLC at every stage.

As we approach our 15th year of operation, we can take pride in reaching an important milestone by serving as a valuable resource for innovators and entrepreneurs.  Our ever-growing list of graduates is a testament to our ability to nurture successful high-tech entrepreneurial ventures in West Central Florida. 

Tanya Elmore, President & CEO of TEC Garage

Tanya Elmore, President & CEO

When we launched the Innovation Center in 2003, the concept of an incubator as a vital part of regional economic development was not yet top-of-mind for most people.  It surely wasn’t as trendy as it is today to coach, mentor and support startups.  We were pioneers in understanding how important it is to assist and nurture entrepreneurs. 


In 2014, we took the foundation of the Innovation Center and established TEC Garage in downtown St. Petersburg.  TEC Garage is an innovation and entrepreneurship center that assists emerging and entrepreneurial companies in the technology and manufacturing sectors by accelerating their success.  TEC Garage provides a unique mind-to-market model for working with entrepreneurs from concept through exit strategy, providing dedicated coaching, mentoring services, shared equipment, conference and office space, educational workshops and access to funders.  Clients are able to access services either onsite or virtually.

Much of our success can be attributed to an outstanding staff with experience in launching and growing tech companies, as well as a group of professionals who volunteer their time to serve as mentors to our clients.  Today we continue to improve our program by incorporating the best features and practices of the most successful programs throughout the country. By continuing to focus on the individual entrepreneur, we can address specific needs with specific skill sets, helping to move the young startup more quickly to revenue and success.

We are fortunate to count numerous well-respected individuals from funding and venture capital organizations, defense program offices, law offices, accounting firms and many more for community support.   Together they make a significant contribution in helping us foster innovation and growth in the high-tech economy in the Tampa Bay marketplace.

Terry Loebel, an unemployed autoworker, founded Valpak® in 1968, using a $500 loan to start mailing coupons from his home to households in Clearwater, Florida. In 1972, Valpak established its first franchise in Orlando, Florida and by 1982, expanded business into Canada. A group of investors purchased Valpak from Terry Loebel in 1985. In September 1991, Cox Target Media, Inc. purchased Valpak and by 1997, Valpak® was mailing out 11 billion coupons a year. 

In January 2017, Platinum Equity acquired Valpak from Cox Target Media, Inc. Today, Valpak has more than 730 employees and mails to nearly 40 million households each month. Annually, Valpak distributes almost 20 billion coupons in approximately 500 million envelopes and millions more through its mobile app and websites.

The Valpak® Manufacturing Center (VMC) is the largest, most-efficient short-run printing facility in the world. This $220-million, state-of-the-art, largely robotic printing facility is just over the Howard Frankland Bridge in Pinellas County. The facility was built in conjunction with the United States Postal Service, and in partnership with supplying companies from all over the world. It boasts more than one mile of conveyor belts and more than 25 robots (17 of which are automated guided vehicles that navigate utilizing wiring buried in the floor of the VMC). Part of the facility even runs in the dark since robots don’t need light to operate. Companies from around the world tour the facility as an example of a highly efficient print operation and an international engineering marvel.

valpak VMC

Some key stats regarding the VMC:

  • 96% increase in productivity over Valpak’s previous facility

Blake-Fuller- GO PUCK -Profile-Car

The Start of it All…

In 1999, Blake Fuller was trying to set a new record at the annual “Race to the Clouds”—The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. At 18 years old, not only did Blake walk away with the “Rookie of the Year” award, but his interest was piqued to make his car lighter–specifically the heavy 45 lbs. battery in his car.

After many iterations, Blake produced a battery nearly four times lighter than the 45 lbs predecessor and shortly thereafter, founded Braille Battery to focus on motor sports batteries based in Sarasota, FL. 

With a rich history dominating motor sports from NASCAR to Formula 1, Braille Battery would go on to be recognized as inventing the Automotive Lithium starting battery and developing the IndyCar Spec Battery as well as other specialty batteries for the defense, medical and aerospace markets. With international patents pending on over 20 core technologies, Blake has not only brought superior performing products to market, but also has simplified the manufacturing process through exclusive designs. In 2014, Braille Battery was acquired by a group specializing in the material science Graphene.

Around the 2011 timeframe with rise in apps and action cameras, Blake could see the writing on the wall that technological society was headed to the “muscle car era of mobile devices” in which devices would continue to improve performance while exhausting their slowly evolving batteries even faster. To help deal with the forthcoming “battery-fuel crisis”, Blake and team developed the GO PUCK solution to provide handsfree rapid-charging of devices multiple times.

Fast forward to 2015, GO PUCK and ROBRADY Design established a partnership to bring GO PUCK’s technology road map to market with next generation industrial designs and production techniques. Combining innovative strengths, they have secured technology and customer relationships with GoPro, Otter Box, Qualcomm, Arrow Electronics and many others.
