HiCi (Home Improvement and Construction Innovation) was created to develop and manufacture innovative new products for the construction and DIY industry. TrigJig is the flagship product range created by HiCi. The tools are the brainchild of HiCi founder Dan Soanes-Brown who built and developed a solution to a problem experienced by tradespeople and DIY enthusiasts when the try to fit coving or skirting board to corners that are not precisely 90 degrees. Dan developed the tools in his spare time whilst studying for a PhD after buying an old Victorian terrace and rediscovering the non-right-angle obstacles to the renovation. After assessing the potential in the products Dan left his PhD and set up HiCi Ltd in early 2015. He secured investment from family and business assist support from Falmouth University to create a proof of concept, and with this continued to develop, refine and improve the functionality of the TrigJig tools.
