Minneapolis-based interior designer, Susie Ries, knows how a simple coat of paint can truly transform a space in any home or office. But after years of seeing portions of bathroom walls left unpainted because people could not reach to paint behind the toilets — she knew there had to be a better way. She had an idea for a tool that would let people easily color the wall behind those toilets, as well as other tough-to-reach places, like hard-to-move furniture, appliances, flat screen TVs, radiators and more. Armed with a prototype she created herself, Susie needed a partner who could design, manufacture and help her market this product …and ultimately transform the painting process forever.
JVIS made hard-to-reach, easy-to-accomplish.
The Paint Behind product quickly made an impact in the home improvement industry. From professional painters and interior designers to homeowners looking for ways to simplify their occasional painting project — the excitement about Paint Behind was instant. Susie Ries brought her idea to the experts at JVIS, and they designed, engineered, manufactured and marketed an industry-changing product.
