Igneous Bath founder and craftsman, perfects the use of concrete with his proprietary material blend and process. Igneous Bath’s vessels are wrapped with the blanketing warmth of internal heated cables. The sculpted concrete is devotedly shaped and polished by hand, ultimately composing a transcendent bathing experience. This level of detail is achieved whether you order a stock design (Airah and Banskah) or a custom creation limited only by your imagination.
Picture an elegantly sculpted concrete form radiating warmth, maintaining heat, completing your perfect space, while you transcend . . . that is Igneous Bath.
"Concrete is amazing. It holds onto its true nature and will not allow its character to be erased, only enhanced. Stubbornly I erase every mark or flaw that looks man made to me. This wonderful fight brings out the best qualities of the concrete."
Igneous is the pursuit of leading creative design in heated luxury concrete freestanding soaking tubs. Our fiery passion and rock solid techniques create the highest quality pieces for a luxurious relaxation experience. We hand sculpt functional art pieces in a world of monotony. Hand formed custom molds produce the highest quality tubs which are then individually sculpted to become a unique functional art piece. Using flowing lines like Van Gogh in an art deco craftsmanship fashion, our artists create the perfect design and function for truly luxurious spaces.
The luxury of Igneous tubs is founded on superior durability, allowing for a legacy within homes throughout generations, not in a landfill. Concrete is an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based synthetic products and nonrenewable natural materials such as quarried stone or old growth forests. Using less cement than equivalent concrete products, significant quantities of recycled materials (pozzolans) and made right the first time, Igneous is sustainable.

James Buskowitz has been leading the Buskowitz Group Infrastructure Development, Renewable Energy and Financing & Investment arm since its inception and has founded several successful businesses such as Energy Renewables Asia, Inc., Buskowitz Development Inc. and Buskowitz Finance Inc. Within only one year, James was able to establish a strong renewable energy portfolio and acquire over 20% market share within the Renewable Energy sector in the Philippines, more specifically in the Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Rooftops.James' view in developing a large renewable asset and infrastructure base is not only for its own development interests but to contribute to the low carbon future initiative while servicing the growing energy demand challenges facing the Philippines and the South East Asia region.
James specializes on Project & Corporate Finance, Mergers & Acquisition and Investment management; and is also heavily involved in all property aspects including land acquisition, construction, planning and design and asset management.
The Buskowitz Group
The Buskowitz Group started as part of an endeavor to cut the electric costs in the family-owned and run hotel, Monaco Suites de Boracay. Having been educated in Germany and being familiar with the efficiency of solar power, Founder and CEO, James Buskowitz decided to go solar for his family resort.
The difficulty in finding a company that promised and delivered excellent quality and service led to the realization that there was significant potential in the Philippines’ solar energy sector. In 2012, Buskowitz founded ERA Energy Renewables Asia, an engineering, procurement, and construction company for solar panel installations and solar systems.
Shortly after, Buskowitz Finance was founded to answer the development and financial needs of clients. The Buskowitz Group was the first in the country to offer solar leases and solar loans, making it easier and faster for companies and individuals to go choose renewable energy solutions.
As the companies grew in both size and market share, the Buskowitz Group centered all endeavors on the goal of providing renewable energy solutions through solar photovoltaic installations, choosing to focus on solar panel rooftop installations and solar leases or loans.
In 2017, through its subsidiaries, Buskowitz aims to be a leader in integrated sustainable energy and sustainable solutions.
The Gym Group was founded by John Treharne, a former England squash player, in 2008. Perhaps that’s why we’re so focused on proper health and fitness benefits, and less on the luxuries that a small percentage of traditional health club members want.
John has a long and successful history in the gym business. He opened his first health club chain, Dragons Health Clubs, in 1991, building the business to a total of 22 clubs. He floated the company in 1997, and in 2000 he and his investors sold it on. He then spent time lending his expertise to premium gym chain Esporta, before concentrating on the launch of The Gym Group.
The Gym Group
Helping the UK to achieve a healthy balance, to be more precise. We think everybody deserves the support to reach their goals whatever they are, and without paying a premium or being tied into a contract.
That’s why we offer no pressure membership that you can stop and start whenever you want. Instead of being tied to a year’s contract, and opening hours that just don’t suit lots of us, like shift workers and students, you can have exactly the way you want it.
For a start we’re open 24/7, almost every day of the year. And we won’t make you sign a contract that ties you in. All we’ll do is give you the exact amount of encouragement and support you need, and make sure you’ve got the very latest kit to do it on (we were one of the first fitness centres in the UK to introduce Myride® indoor cycling and 24/7 video-link pilates, yoga, dance and aerobics classes within our separate studio rooms, don’t you know).
As well as helping the Great British public, we do our bit to make the world healthier and greener too. You’ll find everything we do to run The Gym as sustainably as possible laid out in black and white in our Green Policy.

About Aspen Avionics
Aspen Avionics, based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was founded by aviation enthusiasts in 2004. Aspen Avionics specializes in bringing the most advanced technology and capability into General Aviation cockpits—and budgets. Our products increase situational awareness and reduce pilot workload, making it even easier and safer to fly in both VFR and IFR conditions. The way we look at it, getting the latest avionics technology shouldn’t always mean spending a lot of money—on equipment or installation. At Aspen Avionics, we design products to be affordable, easy to install, and easy to own.
Aspen’s flagship product line is the Evolution Flight Display system, the most innovative—and affordable—glass cockpit system ever for certified general aviation (GA) aircraft. The Evolution system enables aircraft owners to upgrade their primary flight instrument “six pack” to glass cockpit technology all at once, or in stages. Easy and inexpensive software upgrades add new features and capabilities, while future-proofing the system and protecting owners’ investments.
Aspen’s first product, certified in November 2005, is the AT300 Hazard Awareness Display, a combined terrain awareness display and vertical speed indicator. It is designed to directly replace a mechanical vertical speed indicator, and is certified under TSO C8d (Vertical Speed Indicator) and TSO C113 (Multipurpose Electronic Display).
The company raised its first round of venture capital in December 2005, and closed a Series B round in June 2007, to facilitate its continued strong growth. The Company’s investors include Granite Ventures, vSpring Capital, Wasatch Venture Fund, Fort Washington Capital Partners, and Sun Mountain Capital.
Led by industry veteran John Uczekaj, Aspen Avionics’ team of top talent—with deep roots in aviation product development and certification—will continue to grow the company’s business through pioneering solutions for the general aviation market.

GROB Aircraft SE
GROB, headquartered in Tussenhausen-Mattsies Germany, with its research, development, manufacturing and assembly facilities starts into a new future with the backing of H3 Aerospace as strategic partner. The new corporation operates under the name GROB AIRCRAFT SE, and is a 100% subsidiary of H3 Aerospace GmbH & Co KG.
GROB AIRCRAFT is one of the world’s largest and most experienced composite aircraft manufacturers since 1971. Within its 47 years of history Grob delivered more than 3,500 aircraft that have flown over seven million hours on five continents. Its product range evolved from pioneering gliders of the 70s, the record-breaking high altitude aircraft of the 80s and 90s, and to today’s leading edge designed and state-of-the-art business jets, as well as to training and special mission aircraft. At its inception, GROB successfully produced 200 CIRRUS gliders under license and then soon after developed and manufactured its own ASTIR glider series in both a single seat and dual seat configuration. Already early showing its pioneering spirit, the company also introduced the TWIN III SL self-launching glider.
In the 80s, the GROB received German an American (FAA) type certification for the G 109, the world’s first genuine series production composite motor glider. Taking its expertise in composite technology to a new level in the late 80´s, GROB showed its maturity as an aircraft designer and manufacturer when the company developed, tested and manufactured the G 520Egrett / Strato 1 high-altitude aircraft, gaining five world records. The Strato 2C pushed the limits even further. It was designed for altitudes as high as 78,800 feet (24 000 meters) and an endurance of 48 hours.
