About

I’m Darren, the founder of the S.O.S ID Band, a unique concept I know will be a beneficial and life-saving concept! Are you going abroad soon? Make sure to pack your band, it could save your life. 

Introducing myself

I come from a small town in the Breckland area of Norfolk, and I have lived here all of my life, attending the local schools and working In the local area. I’ve worked as an electrical engineer for 10 years and in traffic management for 17 years, within both roles, working closely with others within a team developing skills, whilst challenging myself when new issues and solutions arise. Furthermore, this is what I am excited and looking forward to about the next chapter in life, relishing the challenge that comes with running my own business.

Now, time for a couple of S.O.S ID Band merchandise beach pics (from yours truly):

My journey so far

Over the past three and a half years I have worked day and nights, weekends, spending time away from my family, working through the COVID-19 pandemic as well as being a Son, A Dad, a Partner, caring for family members, as well as looking after our family home to accomplish my dream.

It’s not been easy, but life does test you to bring out the best in yourself, it’s been a challenge I will admit, researching my idea to see if anything else is like it, registering as a business, finding a website designer who I can trust, finding suppliers who can meet my needs and demands on designs, talking to program designers as I wanted a particular sign in method which unfortunately was put on hold, finding an office space suitable for my needs, and registering for an EORI licence to ship my product into Europe – the list goes on.

Many things have come up along the way but I’m sure it’s worth it long term, and with every business there is going to be ups and downs but the reward for people to be safe is the main priority!

Why have I started this company?

Having looked into the market for available I.D bands I noticed that everything seems to be very minimal when it comes to information, just a band with little information Name /Address/ and a phone number, written in one language; I also looked into apps on mobile phones, unfortunately phones get damaged or stolen, or especially if anything untoward that may have happened to someone, when abroad in Europe or further afield, the language barrier has always been an issue let alone reading our chosen language. So this made me think what options we have especially if anything major has happened to said individual, therefore I came up with the idea of the S.O.S I.D BAND, a simple yet effective idea that will be translated by the user to which their chosen language is.

Why my product?

Medical ID bands hold minimal information written in one language and cannot be changed, Apps on smart phones are useful, but phones have batteries that go flat, get smashed, get stolen, along with other personal items such as wallets, but I see nothing that offers what I do, a profile that can be translated anywhere across the globe, this in itself is one of the main reasons I think my product will stand out in the market, I would like to think that my product can or would be able to help someone whilst away on holiday or wherever they choose to wear the S.O.S I.D BAND.

Social media

I hope to have in the near future mobile Apps on Android and the iOS platform, I have an active Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, SnapChat, and an Instagram page to where I will update on a regular basis regarding news, updates, and questions should you need to ask (including the contact form on this website) – I feel these will all prove vital going forward, especially for peace of mind for you all!

What I hope to achieve

I would like to make my product to reach all four corners of the world by gaining a good reputation with an exceptional product, this will enable me to create work within my local community and have the potential to open new chapters whist achieving my full potential. To give back a little to the people that have helped me through my journey, I once read that “our lives are an individual story, we create new stories new chapters all of the time”, something I hope will also be beneficial to the SOS IS BAND user. I would also like to create a legacy for my children, that they can continue long after my story has ended. On a personal note, thank you all for your custom and support, and be safe. 

And lastly, Pack your band, it could save your life
