Bon Tool Co. acquires Plank-Ti assets

Bon Tool Co. has completed its acquisition of the operating assets of Plank-T, Inc. of Waynesboro, Virginia.

Plank-Ti bandingThis acquisition includes the tooling and equipment required to manufacture the popular Plank-Ti banding product, which is used to protect and salvage 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-inch and 12-inch.

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, Pennsylvania and Henderson, Nevada distribution centers.

Bon has been manufacturing construction tools for professionals since 1958.
