The PaintMiser Necessity is the mother
The PaintMiser’s humble beginnings
were that of cardboard paddles cut out by David Graff to help save
on expensive faux finishing materials being used by his award winning
Geoff Gibbons joined Dave’s company after a stint working in
paint management on set in the film industry where paints and containers
moved around at a break-neck pace.
After working with Dave, Geoff was convinced there were possibilities
for the cardboard paddle. Taking the basic idea, Geoff added a number
of extra functions for more complete container cleaning, fashioned
a prototype, and took up the challenge of how to get it to market.
With no experience in the tool or invention world, Geoff turned to
friend Hermann Fruhm who was experiencing major success with his own
invention “The Mega-Pro” multi-bit screwdriver. Fortunately
for Geoff and David, something about the paint tool caught Hermann’s
imagination. Hermann came on board, dubbed the tool “The PaintMiser”
and led the three toward the marketplace. Energized by Hermann's passion,
and his connections in the world of hand tools and inventions, the
team, along with the talents of brilliant industrial designer Alex
Feldman and his design team at Form3, has poured 6 years into developing
and engineering the tool we see today…
- “The Ultimate Paint-Saving Clean-Up Tool”.
PaintMiser is a multi-function tool meticulously engineered
to clean and claim all aspects of residual paint from gallon
and quart containers.
