The journey of a brand that has turned out to become a global company with teams spread across the globe, services clients from South Africa to the United Kingdom.
This is what the journey for ultracoolbru has been since the name was originally registered as a domain many years ago by the founder, Edward Whitehead.
The brand that would later become a company was originally created in 2015 by founder, Edward Whitehead.
It was created as a joke, to be uniquely identify on social media. It was never the intension to form a company, but it became a back-up plan and it was eventually registered as a company.
ultra bike was formed and an e-commerce store selling bicycle products was launched.
As the title suggests, it remained aligned with the ultracoolbru branding.
Although the company is still in existence, it is not operational and the e-commerce store was decommissioned due to lack of interest and high shipping costs during the peak of the global pandemic.
Created a supplementary concept and store to ultra bike, Build-a-Bike was eventually also decommissioned due to the high costs of shipping products around the globe during the pandemic.
In December 2020, Kirsten-Leanne Whitehead was tragically taken from this world and her father and founder of ultracoolbru has dedicated an application concept totally in her memory.
Kirsten, is an on-demand services app, offering a range of home, office and event cleaning services and is currently still in the development phase.
After a long standing contract and travelling to various destinations across the globe as a "digital nomad", our founder had to look at backup plan to ensure he met any relevant legal requirements when entering a country. Of all the possible solutions, starting a company was the best and ultracoolbru (Pty) Ltd was founded 11 February, 2021.
