Somewhere in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States, there is an amazing and unique theme Park. The amazing thing is that the place is not dedicated to fun, but to work. Serious work. Inventionland is the name of the place and represents the corporate headquarters of Davison Design & Development company.

Inventionland is the creation of a visionary manager, George Davison, who believed so strong in the power of the working environment that he made a $5 million investment in a factory with 5,700 m2.

For example the giant robot Inventron 54 is an electrifying place dedicated to consumer electronics, the Motor Speedway is the place where automotive products are developed, within the Creation Cavern prototypes for hunting, fishing, hiking goods, survival tools are developed. Daily meetings take place at the Inventalot Castle, while brainstorming on the deck. The Inventalot Castle was decorated with George Davison’s family coat of arms and it is also dedicated to novelty and holiday gift.
Three waterfalls, life-like trees, butterflies and birds add an extra therapy to this unconventional and inspirational working place.
With such a creative office thre is no wonder that many people want to visit the fantasy world of Davison’s inventors. Inventionland is a place of inspiration on all plans.
