To address the problem of constant labor shortage in construction, especially painting, PaintJet CEO Nick Hegeman figured using robots would do the trick.

Rather than building a new robot, PaintJet adapted equipment that was already safe to use for challenging jobs like painting a warehouse exterior.

It built modular robotics that can be attached to a lift which also has cameras to scan building surfaces at 50-sq.ft boxes at a time.

The PaintJet system is attached to a basket in the lift which then paints box-by-box through remote control operators on the ground.

Paintjet does not sell or rent out its technology, providing the entire painting service itself.

The technology is designed to use any commercial paint, but the company makes and sells its own line as well.

PaintJet's robots reduce paint consumption by 25% while maintaining efficiency in applying it. Consumers save money and humans don't touch the toxic paint.

The company plans to include other construction tasks like pressure washing, sanding, and caulking in the future.
