The Agent's Story
It all started in 1984 when Litchfield International brought clic, the first thermoplastic auto-locking support and hanger to the USA. At the time, this was a revolutionary invention and a departure from the norm of steel hangers.
Becoming the first and only plastic item in the hardware category brought significant challenges in mindset and questions of plastics in construction.
Litchfield developed accessories and related products to make the device more Americanized and useful to those in the field. Beginning in the electrical business, Litchfield added a network of agencies to develop the market.
Morphing into the plumbing and mechanical industry, the company developed a second network of agents and family of distributors. Momentum built.
Being number 1 made the device the top target. Companies both large and small based in USA and Europe created similar items some with additional products and some without. So the marketing competition began.
Litchfield offered distributors, engineers, contractors the best market support. Years of sampling and advertising obtained the most prestigious projects and specifications.
It happened in 2011 when Litchfield received numerous shipments of malfunctioning product. After months of pulling product from the markets, Litchfield’s sales manager decided to replace items in order to retain its customers. Hangerlok was born in several sizes. At the same time, he understood that Litchfield’s time was limited with clic. The full product range development began with leading mold builders, solidworks engineers, graphic and web designers, banks, and equipment finance companies, and injection molders.
