ATLANTA, Ga. – DiversiTech Corp. has purchased Rapid Positioning Clips Ltd., a U.K.-based maker of high-quality clipping products that quickly and easily fit with a variety of channels to seal pipework, electrical wires and cables. The acquisition provides HVACR distributors and contractors with another useful product line they can use to grow their businesses and simplify their work.
The acquisition also solidifies the long-lasting customer relationship between RPC and Pump House, DiversiTech’s supplier of ancillary HVACR products to the European market. Pump House, a customer to RPC for several years, sells more than 1,500 products to national and independent distributors, wholesalers and OEMs. DiversiTech acquired Pump House in 2016.
RPC offers three products, each available in multiple sizes: the Rapid Positioning Clip, the Studding Clip and the InsulClip. These products are manufactured as a single piece and do not require mechanical tools or aids for tightening. These durable, easy-to-use products can be installed in a matter of seconds, saving contractors time and money.
RPC’s signature product, its Rapid Positioning Clip, is made from a composite polyamide alloy, which maximizes strength while minimizing its weight. The Rapid Positioning Clip can be securely installed within a matter of seconds.
The Studding Clip, made of the same composite polyamide alloy, overcomes problems associated with using cable ties for piping, electrical, optical and network cabling. The product can be used to secure both pipe work and its insulation without any breaks. The solid connection can be adjusted up and down by simply rotating the clip, which uses the stud thread as if it were a nut.
InsulClip, RPC’s latest product introduction, provides an uninterrupted vapor barrier seal, which eliminates the problem of sweating on metal fittings. It is ideal for the installation of VRV systems, allowing the vapor barrier seal to run the length of the pipework without cutting off the insulation material.
Customers can continue to order product and conduct business with RPC as they currently do during the integration period, which is expected to be completed soon.
