Eritrean co-founder of Quadsaw launches square drilling machine

T. Michael Sebhatu – from the foothills of Eritrea to a launch in London – this is the story of Quadsaw, the tool that drills square holes.

Michael was born and raised in Eritrea (East Africa) from a family of irrigation farmers, and was exposed to all kinds of engineering at an early age.

Looking into the sky one day while working with his father, Michael asked: “how does that thing fly, it doesn’t have wings like birds?” When his father replied: “son, if you wanted to know that, you have to study,” Michael knew his career ahead lay in engineering.
