Story of Blacksheep

Black sheep are rare and walk their own path

The expression “black sheep of the family” means a person does not follow convention or challenges the status quo. So most of the time people can be deemed as white sheep. This herd mentality is necessary for the human society to function. However, sometimes we need to shake things up a bit, and it is the black sheep that shows others that it is time for change. A black sheep is often initially rejected as bad or different. However, in human history most changes have originally been catalysed by a black sheep who has turned out to be correct.

Hence the power of the black sheep is the power to change for the better. Blacksheep company is challenging traditional technological developments and bringing cutting-edge and innovative solutions in the mechanical, electronics and software industry. Blacksheep is here with the intention of pioneering the growth of Vietnamese designed, developed and manufactured cutting-edge products with world-leading performance and quality to be sold in global markets. And, we are doing it in Vietnam, as we are one of the rare engineering teams in Vietnam operating to international standards.

Story of Mark, the founder of Blacksheep Power

Mark Founded Blacksheep in 2018. With Blacksheep, Mark is passionate to develop and manufacture world leading products in Vietnam, and show young Vietnamese people how to aim high.

Mark studied Engineering at Cranfield in the UK and worked in the Aerospace and F1 industries at the start of his career. Mark also lived in the USA developing mail handling equipment and later The Netherlands and developed the first DVD players for Philips. After moving jobs every two years, Mark wanted to find a home that could keep him interested for longer and ended up in Technology consulting in the Cambridge area in the UK. Here Mark stumbled into scientific and medical device development. This was in 1997, and after having been acquired by a Swiss multinational and then working in M&A, in 2001 he started what has become a group of companies called Blacktrace Holdings Ltd with HQ in the UK near to Cambridge.

Blacktrace has been the leader and first to market in a range of scientific fields connected to microfluidics, and as a result Mark has been on the editorial board of the highest impact academic journal in the field. Mark has always worked on world leading product developments.
