As part of the acquisition announced in May 2012, Caplugs, a leading manufacturer of premium protection products, is now offering Shercon’s complete masking product line through Caplugs’ traditional sales channels.
Since then, the two companies have integrated to offer one source for all product protection and masking needs. “We acquired Shercon because they are true experts in the masking industry with high-quality manufacturing techniques and products,” said Steve Smith, Caplugs’ senior vice president of marketing and new product development. “Combined, Caplugs and Shercon make one proven leader.”
Current Shercon customers will continue to receive the same masking products they are accustomed to, as Caplugs is keeping the entire Shercon masking line, engineering and sales staffs, as well as Shercon’s expansive manufacturing processes.
Customers can now order Shercon masking products online – as well as by phone – via Caplugs’ website. The site provides useful descriptions of each Caplugs and Shercon masking product, as well as its common applications, the maximum temperature it can withstand, storage conditions and availability.
An integrated team of expert, in-house design engineers will continue to create innovative solutions that meet custom requirements, while offering a comprehensive catalog with more than 12,000 parts. Collectively, Caplugs now has more than 100 sales representatives to provide local attention and personalized service. All representatives have been trained on both the Caplugs and Shercon masking product lines.
“Our customers will not lose the Shercon expertise and responsiveness they’ve come to expect,” said Smith. “We will continue to provide advanced solutions, whether it’s a standard catalog item, or a custom piece, designed specifically to meet their needs.”
While Shercon’s Cypress, Calif., facility has relocated to Caplugs’ location in Rancho Dominguez, Calif., the company’s second manufacturing operation in Hangzhou, China, will remain.
Customer service representatives are available to address any questions or concerns at 1-888-CAPLUGS.
