Bon Tool Co., Gibsonia, Pa., has acquired the operating assets of Plank-Ti, Inc. of Waynesboro, Va., manufacturer of Plank-Ti banding for scaffold planks.
Bon has offered the Plank-Ti product line for more than 20 years, and will continue to offer the Plank-Ti for 10” and 12”.
The simple metal banding product, which was developed by a construction engineer, has proven valuable to contractors who install scaffolding. Using damaged, split planks on scaffold is dangerous yet costly to replace. Simply drive the teeth of Plank-Ti into the wood plank, clamp around the ends and nail into place. Plank-Ti can be applied to both ends to a plank to protect new planks or salvage old planks at a faction of the cost of purchasing new ones.
Bon brings over 60 years of experience in tool design, manufacturing and marketing to Plank-Ti’s customer base. Bon is adequately stocked and will immediately begin to serve previous Plank-Ti accounts from its Gibsonia and Henderson, Nv., distribution centers.
