DiversiTech acquires Rapid Positioning Clips Ltd

DiversiTech Corp, a leading manufacturer and supplier of HVACR parts and accessories, has acquired Rapid Positioning Clips Ltd (RPC), a UK-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, completed on March 22, provides HVACR distributors and contractors with another useful product line they can use to grow their businesses and simplify their work.

DiversiTech ceo, Jim Prescott, said: “We’re excited about the opportunity to take on RPC’s product lines and make them immediately more available to contractors and distributors by capitalising on our global distribution and logistical expertise. The acquisition of RPC is just another example of how we continue to grow our offering of high-quality products to better service the needs of our customers.”

DiversiTech was the obvious choice to acquire RPC. Its global reach and operational excellence will ensure RPC’s legacy will continue as more wholesalers gain access to RPC’s line of high-quality products.

The acquisition also solidifies the long-lasting customer relationship between RPC and Pump House, DiversiTech’s premier 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 currently 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 maximises strength while minimising 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 vapour barrier seal, which eliminates the problem of sweating on metal fittings. It is ideal for the installation of VRV systems, allowing the vapour 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.

DiversiTech’s acquisition of RPC is the company’s seventh acquisition in the past 18 months.  t continues the company’s aggressive strategy to bring its customers world-class products and service and to make each of its customer ever more profitable.  DiversiTech currently offers more than 17,000 product items in over 200 product categories.

Distributors and contractors wanting more information can contact their local DiversiTech manufacturer representative or visit www.diversitech.com. More information about RPC is available at http://www.rapidclips.com.
