Partnership to operate under the name Hankscraft Runxin LLC

Runxin USA partners with Hankscraft H20 Products

Hankscraft H2O Products and Runxin USA Inc. announced 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, Wis., with Hankscraft as the majority and controlling owner. This partnership formalizes the long-standing relationship between the two companies and capitalizes on the 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 research and development efforts of both companies.

“Coming off a year of over 20% growth, Hankscraft believes this partnership will further this acceleration by being able to offer our customers a significantly wider product line,” said Mark Blume, Hankscraft president. “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.”

“This partnership means both companies will have a wider 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,” said Wu Xiaorong, Runxin general manager.
