PALMER, MA. December, 2015. Sanderson MacLeod recently confirmed the installation of an additional laser production line in order to significantly increase capacity of the company’s patented Z-Tip product and will be ready for production by December 31st, 2015.
The investment, according to Sanderson MacLeod’s President Mark N. Borsari is needed to keep up with the overwhelming market demand for their proprietary Z-Tip product and ensure duplicity in their manufacturing capabilities. “We are very excited,” said Borsari. “From the very beginning, we knew the need for brushes with a perfectly smooth, consistent and inseparable protective tip was huge. The growing Z-Tip demand, combined with new advancements in technology, made our decision to further invest a very easy one.”
The announcement of additional production capabilities is just the latest development in the meteoric rise of the Z-Tip product line.
“Several years ago, our clients needed a better, safer, and more economically priced protective brush tip,” Sanderson MacLeod’s Director of Operations Ted Snyder recalled. “We developed the Z Tip manufacturing method utilizing material joining engineering. After extensive testing, we engineered a way to melt a pre-constructed core wire section into a consistent, smooth and inseparable protective tip. It’s a patented process, and has exceeded even our own high expectations.”
To date, the Z-Tip has received numerous awards, including the William A. Cordes Innovation Excellence Award from the American Brush Manufacturers Association (ABMA). According to David C. Parr, Executive Director of the ABMA, “We were delighted to present the 2011 ABMA William A. Cordes Innovation Excellence Award to Sanderson MacLeod. The award recognizes outstanding industry innovation and has become quite sought after and prestigious. It serves as a constant reminder that all new and exciting endeavors have beginnings that connect with real people.”
Sanderson MacLeod reports that appointments are already being scheduled for Z-Tip prototype development in their new Brush Innovation Center for clients serving the Medical, Cosmetic, Gun Care, Manufacturing, and General Cleaning markets.
