I’m happy to announce that we’re looking at automatic liquid filling machines due to the fact that our paint business has really taken off. I can remember just starting out and we’d sit around hand filling buckets with paint and then we would load up the car and take them to the speciality paint store in town. We’d sell a few here and there and considered that a success. It’s actually not hard to make paint, and I’m pretty good at it, and we make the best enamel paint you’ve ever seen. It makes rooms glow it’s so good.
Then one of those house shows on television happened to showcase our product. To this day I’ve never understood how they got their hands on our product, but in any case the phone started ringing off the hook. We had so much demand for our product that we had to decide how big we were going to go. We also needed to decide what equipment we needed to fill the paint containers. It was obvious we weren’t going to be able to sit around and hand fill them. I wasn’t going to be able to sit around and hand mix it anymore!
We managed to secure a small warehouse and set about getting the equipment we needed thanks to a small loan from my wife’s parents. We looked online for used stuff but couldn’t find anything reliable until we stumbled over a company that offered a host of machines. Even better, they asked us all sorts of questions about our product and the size of the containers and were able to customize the device especially for us! It’s amazing how well it works and we’re actually saving money because we can measure precisely how much paint goes into the can almost down to the drop!
