Our purpose is to create innovative, collaborative and engaging modern working and learning spaces by adding functionality to surfaces.
While working in the construction industry, a customer asked Ronan our founder to cover an entire meeting room with whiteboards. Ronan quickly realised that this solution wouldn’t fit their needs and looked terrible with all the joints and unused surface area. Ronan had a better idea. What if you could write on the entire wall seamlessly?. The idea for Smarter Surfaces was born.
Over the next few years, Ronan worked on developing a new whiteboard coating technology. This eventually led to the creation and launch of Smart Wall Paint, our first whiteboard paint, in 2012. Word spread quickly and the product took off, with businesses, schools and universities using and enjoying the benefits of whiteboard paint all around the world. Entire offices, meeting rooms, hallways, tables, desks and doors were being transformed into collaborative working spaces.
Smarter Surfaces is now the global leader and producer of truly innovative commercial wallcoverings, films, paints and plasters.
