Gavin owns Nevermachine, a television production and post production company which he started back in January 2010.

In 2010, Idols SA employed the skills and services of Nevermachine, which is headed by Gavin Wratten to handle the production of the entire show.

Gavin also co-owns the company ‘Sic Entertainment’ with Idols South Africa presenter ProVerb.
