Founder / Chief Designer

Dave Cook

aka: The Dave Sea


I worked with my father in the janitorial business “Teds Janitorial Service” back in the late 70’s and all through the 1980’s as a teenager and my first real invention was when I designed and built a machine that distributed the wax stripper chemical onto the floor evenly and at a high volume without missing a spot. I will say that it worked really well and we used it a lot. I guess I have always been inventing.

I have always looked for ways to make things easier “necessity is the mother of invention, laziness is the father”. My other favorite quote is “If you want to find the quickest, easiest, fastest way to do something, get a lazy person to do it”. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not interested in lazy, I’m just interested in being resourceful enough to find and use all the motivation and all the tools that are available to find the solution to a particular problem, as I see it.

I’ve been in the sign industry since 1992 and the company I worked for we had to do a lot of innovating out of necessity so it really fueled my creative fire as I progressed and the sign company grew I noticed I was creating more products from scratch to accomplish certain task so there was a reason the guys I worked with nicknamed me McGyver (from the popular 1990’s TV show McGyver). Now every little problem I see I try to come up with a solution for and I always had an artistic flare so this is why we have such a diverse line of products.

Currently I hold a United States Patent, #D684,875, for “Ruler Design”, issued June 25th, 2013. This is a design patent for the way it is designed and the way it looks.   

I have 10 inventions/products, 4 books in my “braincrate” that I will be “launching” over the course of the next few years. My goal is to be creative and develop new innovations where I see opportunity to offer high quality affordable products to the masses.
