Paul Walsh – our engineering consultant – has invented the following products:
360 Painting Products
Paul had the idea for the 360 Paint Roller one day while out of a walk. On his route, a painter was just starting on a 250 metre section of railing. Paul asked how long it was going to take to paint it, ‘weeks’ was the answer!
By the time he was back from his walk, he had the basic product idea. That evening he did the initial design and by the morning his first 3D Printed prototype was ready.
Through our existing network contacts, we quickly had a product model ready and a manufacturing partner. We developed the brand in-house, including the logo design. We launched it at the 2016 Las Vegas Hardware Show. The range is now available in retailers in Ireland, UK, Canada and Scandinavia. Recently we signed a global sales partnership agreement with a major paint brand
