Dust Cover

Dust Cover

For years we have supplied a local customer thermoformed dust covers.  These covers have some nasty undercuts that were required in order to fit the clients product and its intended use.  Shepherd struggled with the job at production start up but eventually overcame the unique learning curve that this project mandated.

When we learned that the production was moving to the Czech Republic our immediate thoughts were how do we retain the business.  We should not have worried.  After the customer moved production we continued to ship the dust covers and switched the material to a ROHS friendly clear RPET.  We also worked with the customer to achieve price discounts with this material and a new purchasing pattern.  Shipping to the Czech Republic has been a seamless transition, further solidifying the projects long term potential.
