All About Us
The Qlic journey has been a long one, first developed by PD Components in 2014 Qlic was developed to be a wall mounted permanent tablet stand. After a conversation with a colleague regarding the use of tablet devices in schools, Qlic evolved into a desk mounted version.
As an avid bunch of tablet users we noticed a few issues with other stands on the market……
- Once you began to use your device the stand would move across the table and in some cases collapse all together.
- The stands available did not seem to be very hard wearing, how can a bit of plastic hold your tablet securely?
- If the battery was low we could not find a stand or docking station that would support the tablet while it was being charged. The docks were either too small to fully support the tablet, or the cables simply were not long enough to reach the place the tablet was rested.
- As an office of multi tablet users we also noticed that most stands were brand specific, we could not find a stand to fit our iPad and our Samsung.
Charging facilities were added to the design in 2016 after a fruitless internet search to find a stand that would support all our tablets and enable us to charge them while in use.
Qlic is our first consumer ready product and with countless retailers and distributors already lined up we are confident it will Qlic with you too!

Managing Director of PD Components and Qlic’s creator, along with Paula Corden (General Manager) saw a gap in the market and took full advantage of his design experience and contacts in the far east to produce what you see now.

Listening to customers needs and wants Gerry also came up with the basic version of Qlic aimed at the education sector.
