LUMO Partners with Coastal Pet Products
Coastal Pet Products will served as a distribution partner for LUMO's Ridgeback Grooming Tool, which will be released at SuperZoo and showcased at LUMO's booth, #4521 as well as the Coastal Pet Products booth, #4035.
"Having been a groomer for over 30 years, I had long struggled with having to switch out tools during the often lengthy groom process,” said Liz Morrisey, co-founder of LUMO. “Which is why I felt motivated to create a tool which would eliminate the need to switch tools for de-tangling and de-shedding, thus halving the time spent on one pet. The benefits span from groomers physical health to the bottom line. We are so proud of the Ridgeback, and can not wait to debut it at Super Zoo.”
LUMO came to market with the Ridgeback Grooming tool in large part due to the backing and support of influential individuals and companies in the pet products space, such as Coastal Pet Products. Cardinal Pet also assisted with the tool’s soft launch at the 2019 Global Pet Expo.
The patented LUMO Ridgeback Grooming Tool, with its stainless steel rounded and graduated comb tips, is able to successfully de-tangle hair, while the smaller, more closely aligned pins de-shed all shed hair. Since the tool is not a blade but individual soft rounded pins, there is no threat of scratching or cutting the pets’ skin or coat during the groom process. Durability tested in all grooming salon conditions, the Ridgeback is safe to use in water without rusting, and can withstand a drop undamaged from 6’.
"With my design background and overwhelming desire to solve problems, as soon as Liz presented me with this challenge, I was consumed with perfecting this solution,” said Brian Murrihy, CEO and co-founder of LUMO. “What we have produced is an incredibly high quality, durable, effective tool which will eliminate the need for more than one grooming tool. The Ridgeback will allow for professional pet groomers to see more clients on average, and will make the pet-owners at-home groom experience a pleasurable and effective one for both the pet and the human!”
"As long time industry innovators and pet lovers ourselves, the Coastal Pet team is excited to be partnering with Lumo and leveraging our long standing retail relationships to bring this product to market,” said Kim Stout, president of Coastal Pet Products.
The Ridgeback will be available in select retailers in late Q3/early Q4.
