Engino was founded in 2004 by Costas Sisamos in Cyprus. With degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Education, Costas worked for 10 years in Primary schools teaching Design & Technology. With a vision to inspire his students to become better problem solvers and future innovators, Costas started designing a new system of modular connectors that would enable students to build fast and easy fully functional technological models.
The award of research capital by European Union supported the first 3 years of development, and the first ENGINO® sets were launched in 2007 attracting the interest of international toy buyers and education specialists. The patented ability of the system to snap-fit on multiple locations while maintaining simple manufacturing methods was a feature that unleashed great potential. Since the launch, the system has received several local and international awards, while the company's R&D team continues to develop new innovations taking ENGINO® to the 3rd generation of construction toys.
Now, with a product range of more than 50 different sets, ranging from simple structures and mechanisms to solar energy sets and wireless robotics, ENGINO® is one of the fastest-growing companies in the field. This success is reflected in the recent expansion to a new fully automated factory in Cyprus, setting new standards for production in Europe by introducing vertical integration from conception to manufacturing and retail
