U.S.-based Hankscraft joins forces with China-based Runxin to offer a broader range of residential and commercial products.
Reedsburg, WI - Hankscraft H2O Products and Runxin USA, Inc. announce a new partnership to provide North American water treatment dealers with Runxin's complete line of products. Included in the offering are valves and systems that utilize Runxin's patented ceramic disc technology that increases longevity and eliminates the need to replace rubber seals and gaskets that are prone to leaks.
The partnership will operate under the name Hankscraft Runxin, LLC. It will be based at Hankscraft's corporate office in Reedsburg, WI, with Hankscraft as the majority and controlling owner. This partnership formalizes the long-standing, exclusive relationship between the two companies and capitalizes on the strong reputation of Runxin's complete product line of ceramic disc and hermetic valves. Together with Hankscraft's point-of-entry and point-of-use water treatment products, dealers will now have access to a full line of water treatment products for residential, light commercial, and heavy commercial applications. Future product announcements are expected to come from the combined engineering and R&D efforts of both companies.
"The partnership is a terrific cultural fit and both companies have similar expertise in engineering and manufacturing. By formalizing our existing relationship, water treatment professionals can take even greater advantage of Runxin's valves, which require virtually no maintenance and are nearly indestructible.", Mark Blume, Hankscraft's President commented. "We believe this partnership will accelerate our growth by allowing us to offer our customers a significantly wider product selection."
"This partnership means both companies will have an expanded market, giving Runxin additional growth opportunities. We are very happy and proud to see our relationship with Hankscraft evolve to this new level of cooperation," stated Wu Xiaorong, Runxin's General Manager.
