The Hanvey Story

 - Innovations and Vision of a Groomer's Son and Engineer -

Hanvey Engineering & Design, LLC originally began in 1995 under the name Hanvey Specialty Engineering. Company founder Curtis Hanvey Jr. had a passion to provide the pet grooming industry with innovative, time saving, and stress reducing products that would revolutionize the groomer's workday. As the son of a groomer, Curtis saw firsthand the day-to-day struggles that real world groomers faced on a daily basis. He was especially motivated by the reality that a groomer typically spent about half of their grooming time just handling and positioning difficult dogs. Time spent handling a dog is time not spent grooming a dog and TIME IS MONEY.

We are here to end groomer burn out! – Curtis Hanvey Jr.  

Curtis' passion to create cutting edge solutions to these every day grooming problems coupled with his "outside the box" vision led him to create his first product in 1990. The LIPSystem was born to overcome the failures of the standard grooming arm and provide additional safety for both the groomer and the dog. The vision and product line has steadily grown ever since to include such innovations as the Bathing Beauty and HairVac.
