ALbee Pro Kiosk

An experiment in intra-preneurship

ALbee Professional is a packaged gas product from Air Liquide, the world's largest industrial gas company.

With the goal of bringing this product direct to consumer, I led a team to design and launch a self-serve vending machine for welding professionals, artists, and crafts(wo)men.

This project was my first exploration into intrapreneurship and the possibility of developing a startup within a large organization. Over the span of two years, I led the development from cardboard concept to Home Depot storefronts. 

Two patents were awarded for the design: Electronic container vending system and RFID tag cylinder inventory control method.
