About our chief inventor Ran TAL
Sep. 7, 1936 – Sep. 17, 2019.

Born in Israel Sept. 1936 to parents Lea & David (Rosenthal) who luckily moved to Palestine before WWII. Their entire families were executed during the Holocaust.
Ran is Guy’s father and maglula’s in-house chief inventor and designer of most manual assembly line tooling.

Ran is an autodidact, jack-of-all-trades types of person with a wide range of interests, like philosophy, art, science, technology, health matters, and poem writing.
Ran is also interested in many practical occupations where he likes to dive in without prior knowledge. Ran often invents something new without knowing what is impossible in that field.


Here are few of Ran’s past occupations, and the list is still open 🙂


1952-1965: Agriculture, cotton, and corn growing in Kibutz Ramat-David, Israel.


1965-1967: In Africa (with young Guy) teaching modern agriculture to rural communities.


1969-1976: Inventing a method of pond fish reproduction in a lab at Kibutz Ma’agan Michael, Israel.


1976-1978 in Rockford Illinois as guest of the Jewish community.


1978: Developing a new technique of producing decorative rug wall-hangings in the US.


1980: Establishing a (above) fish reproduction Lab. In Venezuela.


1987-1990: Establishing a custom-made rugs factory in Sydney Australia (designer Rugs).


1990-2001: Developing tools and accessories for the handicap.


Since 2001 With son Guy, inventing maglula’s loaders.


Ran considers his main advantage over others lies in the series of stages he developed with which he tackles technical problems; or in practice, what steps to take to manipulate his own brain to produce the ideal solution.

Ran believes that now with his vast experience and over 16000 x 5 stars testimonials online (2019), it’s time to choose a more serious career than inventing loaders before he gets old 🙂


May he rest in peace. We truly loved and deeply miss the man.
