Profile: Mantis DeliveryPeople & Pets
Style In Form has been outsourcing our local deliveries to Mantis since early 2016 and we could not be more impressed with their level of service and professionalism. We thought it might be fun to get to know owner, Nat Bovey and his nephew Marcus a little better.
Nat chose the name Mantis for his delivery company because of his fascination (obsession?) with the praying mantis. As an avid martial artist – he studies Brazilian jui-jitsu and Muay Thai kickboxing – the mantis’ precision and speed are something Nat aspires to. “Their forelegs can strike and retract in half the time it takes a human being to blink!”
When he is not out doing deliveries or diligently working towards his black belt, Nat enjoys spending time with his family, hanging out with Mantis’ awesome co-founder Frank and catching up on episodes of Coronation Street.
Marcus is a cool dude in a loose mood. He also practises Brazilian jiu-jitsu (shout out to Apex Martial Arts), but mainly enjoys hanging out with his precocious little sister, Malaya, working out and listening to music.
