BILLINGS, Mont., Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, SleekEZ®, a leading Montana-based pet grooming brand with a loyal international client base, has confirmed that its best-selling pet grooming product is now fully protected by Utility Patent No. 9,474,250 which has been officially issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Also known as Patents for Invention, companies can only be awarded this level of protection with proof of superior original innovation. After inventing the best de-shedding product on the market, the company has enjoyed numerous dramatic daily sales spikes of in excess of 2,000%.
Founded with the needs of pet and livestock owners and animal caretakers firmly in mind, SleekEZ and its team of highly skilled professionals have set their sights on significant global expansion on the back of the new patent. Already, word has spread and the company has just signed a contract with a major distributor in Europe. This is in addition to an impressive wholesale distribution agreement in the United States. Online, the SleekEZ Original De-shedding Grooming Tool is consistently a best seller in the prime categories of Pet Supplies, Dogs, Grooming, Brushes, and Cats on the giant international Amazon platform. It has also nurtured a dedicated following on Social Media with almost 93,000 followers on the SleekEZ Facebook page.
"I'm so proud we've achieved the impossible with SleekEZ. When everybody said it couldn't be done, seasoned Denver-based Attorney, Edward Crabtree, helped to make this amazing day a reality," expressed Jennifer Tipton, Inventor and Founder, SleekEZ. "The fact is that our product was already a success with consumers before we started the patent process. Today, we have confirmation that SleekEZ is the best product of its kind anywhere in the world and we now have the capacity to go global."
Inspired by a powerful quote from her mother, "Do what you love and you will never work," the SleekEZ brand was lovingly built from the ground up by Jennifer Tipton, a veteran advanced equine dentistry industry professional licensed in 3 states. This has also given her a keen sense of animal behavior which has helped to propel the popularity of the SleekEZ brand. A former Journalist at The Los Angeles Times, she graduated with a Degree in Journalism from the University of Montana School of Journalism.
A standout product aside from the patent, the USA-made SleekEZ has already become a winner with passionate pet owners and well cared for pets who would normally reject grooming. This is due to a unique patented design with variable pitch wave patterns. The comb and metal teeth were custom built for maximum comfort, effectiveness, and ease of use. SleekEZ never pulls on healthy hair within dense and longer coats. Interestingly, the multipurpose SleekEZ also works brilliantly on carpets, upholstery, and automobiles.
Since 2011, SleekEZ has officially been giving pet and livestock owners and animal caretakers the best grooming experience in the world - now the only product of its kind on the market that holds a U.S. Utility Patent. Our Founder has dedicated many years to advancing the needs of owners and animals alike in the United States and abroad at the highest levels at up to 50% of the cost of non-patent holding competitors. SleekEZ is proud to be a Member of the non-profit organization the American Pet Products Association (APPA).
