The rise of METOMICS

Over a decade ago a new sheet metal technology emerged; allowing intricate models to be created and built.Β Wist Plastic & Metal TechnologyΒ (nowΒ WiST Group), a specialist sheet metal manufacturer, launched the world’s first β€˜metal-etched’ toy. With easy to follow instructions and simple, snap-together assembly, incredibly detailed models could be constructed in minutes.

WiST’sΒ continued investment in the technology cemented its popularity and in 2016, now rebranded Piececool, innovated a Multi-Colour Electroplating process to ensure that to this day, Piececool continues to be a market leader and grow the brand on the global stage.

At about the same time, a vision to create a high quality, configurable construction block was being realised.



The concept; to devise a simple means of creating any 3-Dimensional form, providing designers, modelmakers, artists, sculptors, engineers and creatives of all ages, a modular unit by which β€˜anything’ could be constructed. As an innovator and manufacturer of metal products,Β WiSTΒ would spend 3 years developing the technology to produce the precision engineered β€˜modular units’.

WiSTΒ is proud to presentΒ METOMICS, the world’s first metal construction block.
