Hangerlok USA finds a home in the facilities piping market
Litchfield International, Litchfield CT, has been serving the construction and engineering communities since 1984.
Litchfield’s proprietary product line, Hangerlok®, is used in the piping market within the US for numerous applications. Those applications include: engineered piping systems, heating systems, flexible piping, potable water systems, industrial piping, and many market applications. 99% of the Hangerlok applications are within the plastic piping market. That market is estimated to be $13 Billion in 2018.
Litchfield International transformed its business model as a national distributor of European construction products to become a domestic manufacturer of similar products in 2010. By becoming a USA based manufacturer, the company was able to develop new products that outperformed its imported product line. That transformation allowed the company to follow its mission of proudly making the Hangerlok product line in the USA. As of December 2018, 100% of all products made by Litchfield International are produced in Litchfield CT with its partner, Technical Industries Inc.
“As the exclusive manufacturing partner for all of Litchfield’s Hangerlok products, I am proud to have the opportunity to produce the product line in our plant in Torrington, CT.
Having worked with Litchfield for over sixteen years, I can testify that their standards are exacting. It is rewarding to me, my partner and our entire organization to be intricately involved in their mission to manufacture their products in the United States.
We look forward to our continuing relationship as Litchfield continues to grow in the piping market.”
