A Madera County business is trying to make it onto the hit show "Shark Tank."

Piece by piece, employees at Nemat Inc. in Madera County are assembling a way to help people watch TV with ease.

"Enable the people to place their TV in any location of the room to eliminate neck strain," said Nemat Inc. President Mike Nemat.

Nemat showed Action News how the ComfortVu works. The Madera County facility manufactures the electronic mounting system. It's sold through various stores and online, but Nemat wants to bring it to a bigger audience.

"We feel this is a great product. It has many applications, and people just don't know about it," said Nemat. "So we want to go on 'Shark Tank' and try to market the product with one of the sharks."

Nemat needs the community to vote for him online so he can make it on the show, and others are supporting him as well.

"To see someone from Madera get on that show and represent not only Madera County but the Central Valley, is just a feather in our cap here," said Madera County Economic Development Commission Executive Director Bobby Kahn.

Kahn says in the past few years, more businesses have moved to or started in Madera County, and each business is a positive sign.

"The more you can keep in your local economy, the better off and the more your economy grows," said Kahn.

Kahn and others hope this unique product, made in the USA, and manufactured in Madera County will make its way to a national platform.

And they hope their pitch to "Shark Tank" will be a success so they can bring more jobs to the North Valley.

March 15 is the last day to vote for ComfortVu. To help them land a spot on "Shark Tank," visit www.sharktankzone.com/content/comfortvu.
