Smarter Surfaces is an Irish based company which manufactures a range of award-winning paints and wallpapers including whiteboard paint and magnetic paint.
Managing director Ronan Clarke developed the idea for the business while working in the construction industry in 2009. He had a request from a client to build a white board room. Discovering that there was no inexpensive or easy way to make one, he looked for a solution, and came up with the idea of creating a paint to turn a wall into a whiteboard.
Smart Wall Paint has received several awards including an EOPA Product of the Year 2014, an Export Industry Award 2014, the 2013 David Manley Business Category Award and the 2013 PwC Docklands Innovation Award.
It is a simple product with a powerful effect. Using this paint means walls can be written on, projected on, and are magnetic. It can literally transform a school or workplace, into a majorly productive space, and this is why the company’s innovative products are now used in offices, schools, and universities across the world. Indeed Smarter Surfaces paint is sold in more than 35 countries.
The paint is manufactured in Ireland but currently more than 98 per cent of the company’s products are exported and directors are now seeking to expand further in the home market.
Smarter Surfaces is seeking a franshisee in the Galway region to bring its award winning product to schools and businesses in the local market. It is an ideal opportunity for a motivated and pro-active individual who wants to work for his/her self. This is a full-time role and potentially ideal for somebody who has previous sales experience. However a background in sales is not a pre-requisite, but one must show a commitment to what is an amazing product, and the benefit it can bring to any organisation.
Indeed the company will provide the chosen individual with intensive sales and marketing training and there will be ample support available from the head office which is based in Dublin.
