Richmond, VA, United States, 2010/02/19 - An American success, the Painter’s Pyramid is making its global debut at the International Hardware Fair in Cologne, Germany.
The Painter’s Pyramid is a durable and versatile tool that securely elevates projects off the work surface saving time and effort while improving results. By elevating projects the Painter’s Pyramid allows for one-time project completion and eliminates contact with wet surfaces. The rounded non-stick points minimize contact and leaves projects blemish-free. With approximately 5 million sold the Painter’s Pyramid has been helping home owners, woodworkers and crafters across America “Paint Without the Wait” since its 2007 launch.
Based upon the Painter’s Pyramid’s success in the United States and securing intellectual property protection abroad K & M of VA, Inc, the parent company of the Painter’s Pyramid, is excited to launch the Painter’s Pyramid in the global market. The Painter’s Pyramid is currently available through over 10,000 US retailers including Lowe’s, Home Depot, ACE Hardware and Sherwin Williams. Past awards include the 2008 National Hardware Show Retailer’s Choice Award, Do It Best’s Member’s Choice Award and seals of approval from both the Handyman Club of America and the Creative Home Arts Club.
The biannual International Hardware Fair is the optimal venue for the Painter’s Pyramid global launch. As the world’s largest trade fair for the hardware sector the 4-day Fair drew over 70,000 visitors from 132 countries in 2008. This year over 3,000 exhibitors from over 60 countries are expected to draw a larger and more diverse crowd. The Fair opens on Feb. 28 and runs through March 3 at the Koelnmesse Fair Grounds in Cologne. The Painter’s Pyramid will be featured in Hall 04.2 at Booth B015b at the show.
K & M’s newest home improvement and woodworking product the Finishing Turntable will also be on display at the show. The Finishing Turntable expands on the ingenious idea of the Painter’s Pyramid by securely elevating and effortlessly rotating projects. With 12 adjustable Painter’s Pyramid mounted on rails to a Lazy Susan style turntable the Finishing Turntable provides the same one-time project completion and blemish-free results while easily rotating projects for touch-free access to all sides.
In conjunction with its global launch packaging for the Painter’s Pyramid is now available in German, French, Spanish and Italian in addition to English. Pyramids are available in yellow, blue, red and pink in packs of 10 or 36. The Finishing Turntable is available in yellow and red.
