Meet The Inventor: The Pencil & Crayon Armor

Meet Eric J. Mullins,

The Inventor of Crayon & Pencil Armor ®.

Eric's journey as a journeyman carpenter and tradesman provided him with invaluable insights into the challenges faced by his peers. Armed with this firsthand knowledge and driven by a desire to improve the industry, he set out to develop solutions that would address these common struggles. The Pencil & Crayon Armor, revolutionized the way carpenters and tradespeople approached their work. No longer did they have to contend with constantly replacing broken or lost pencils and crayons. With Eric's invention, these essential tools were protected from damage and conveniently accessible whenever needed.

The Pencil & Crayon Armor not only extended the lifespan of carpenter pencils and lumber crayons but also brought efficiency to the job site. Carpenters could focus on their tasks without the frustration of searching for misplaced or damaged tools. Eric's design became a staple in tool bags across the industry, earning him recognition and respect among his peers.

Recognizing the potential of his inventions, Eric took the bold step of applying for patents to protect his designs. With a clear vision of their utility and value, he approached C.H. Hanson, a renowned manufacturer in the field, to collaborate on bringing his products to market. Through perseverance and determination, Eric successfully negotiated a partnership that would see his innovations become prominent features in C.H. Hanson's product lineup.

Eric's story serves as a testament to the power of innovation and determination. By refusing to accept the status quo, he transformed a common problem into an opportunity for improvement, ultimately enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of his fellow tradespeople.
