HICKORY, N.C. (June 3, 2019) – Today, Hickory, N.C.-based Shurtape Technologies, an industry-leading producer of pressure-sensitive tapes, celebrates a decade since the acquisition of the Duck®, Painter’s Mate® and Easy Liner® brands from Henkel, forming its Avon, Ohio-based Consumer & Craftsman Group, ShurTech Brands.
The brands, which encompass a range of do-it-yourself, home and office products, were added to Shurtape Technologies’ industrial and professional product portfolio, primarily sold under the Shurtape® and FrogTape® brands. Since the acquisition, the Company has also added the T-Rex® brand of Ferociously Strong Tapes® to its extensive product offering, which includes masking and paper, foil and film, electrical, packaging, double-coated, cloth and duct, and other specialty tape products, in addition to packaging dispensers and equipment for automated and manual packaging applications.
“It is hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since Shurtape Technologies and ShurTech Brands came together,” said Jim Shuford, Vice Chairman, Shurtape Technologies. “Together we’ve grown our business, added new brands and launched innovative new products. We’ve also expanded our footprint to include new production and distribution locations locally, nationally and internationally. Ten years is a significant milestone worth celebrating, as well as a perfect opportunity to not only reflect on our accomplishments, but also look ahead to what’s in store for our future.”
