PASADENA, Calif. - Entrepreneurs who continually push the envelope by improving and developing new product and services are the lifeblood of any industry. The New Product Innovation panel, taking during the 2018 Cabinets & Closets Conference & Expo, March 27-29 at the Pasadena Convention Center, will offer attendees a first-hand look at the process.

The Q&A with entrepreneurs Jack Z. DeLorean, AttiClosets, DeLorean and Lee Goldsticker, Lazy Lee will focus on how to expand business opportunities and develop ideas for new products as well as a discussion of design and manufacturing challenges, filing patents and much more.  

DeLorean says he developed AttiClosets in response to the growing demand for home storage. "It's perhaps the only new system that actually increases storage by up to 20 cubic feet, with no increase in a home’s square footage," he says. "Every one of the five homebuilders to which we have shown the product indicated they would like to offer it as an option, some were quite enthusiastic."
 
Goldsticker created a 360-degree rotating organizer. "The unique, patent-pending ROTAS bearing system enables our storage units to rotate smoothly, quietly and safely with a load-bearing capacity of over 8,000 pounds," he says. "Our patent-pending Lazy Lee H-on-a-circle designs need no central pivot point, and when fastened to the floor, Lazy Lee units need no stabilizing pin."
