For the seen and the unforeseen. For the predictable and the unpredictable. Where there’s Wilbur, there’s a way.

 

Solutions for the future, inspired by the past.

Wilbur Wright and his brother Orville were two self-taught engineers who along with their sister Katharine, dared to look beyond the horizon and dream of something bigger. Through countless setbacks it was only their persistence, determination and experience after each demoralising failure that helped them launch the first powered airplane flight in 1903.

Inspired by the Wright family, Wilbur is relentless in finding innovative solutions that conquer everyday disruption – solutions for the future, inspired by the past. It’s in this tradition that we continue the fight for ease, simplicity and connection – one small step at a time.

Because for Wilbur… innovation never rests.

 

The right solutions at the right time.

We’ve codified the workflow of how any type of disruption is managed, and embedded it into our offerings.

  • Plan: Predict and plan ahead to minimise the risk and inevitable impacts when disruption occurs.
  • Capture: Capture information quickly and accurately, helping everyone to deliver the right solution faster.
  • Administrate: Control the process from start to finish to deliver greater transparency, efficiency and better customer experiences.
  • Manage: Manage with confidence using best-in-class solutions to get your customers back to normal faster.

 

Innovation never rests… and neither do we.

We’re proud of our team of fearlessly determined and driven people, whose tireless pursuit of better solutions has made us what we are today.
