AVON, OH – ShurTech Brands, provider of consumer brands such as Duck® duct tape and FrogTape® painter’s tape, is formally and legally changing its name to Shurtape Technologies LLC. The change will be officially effective Dec. 31, 2020; branding changes will begin in June and continue through year-end. There will be no changes in ownership or management.
ShurTech has been part of the Shurtape Technologies Group of companies since 2010 but has kept its identity separate. Moving forward, the company will be known as Shurtape Technologies’ Consumer & Craftsman Group (C&C) and will continue to market do it yourself, express it yourself, and home and office products under the Duck, T-Rex®, FrogTape, Painter’s Mate® and Shurtape® brands.
“My father, Jack Kahl, founded our company on the spirit of imagination and innovation, and that will never change,” said John Kahl, Chief Executive Officer of Shurtape Technologies’ Consumer & Craftsman Group (formerly ShurTech Brands). “However, as we continue to expand our product line, as well as grow globally, we wanted to bring the strength of the resources of ShurTech and Shurtape together. Our focus, as it always has been, will be to develop products that make people’s lives easier and help them do their jobs better.”
“Serving our customers with quality products and great service will also remain our top priority,” continued Kahl. “This change simply brings together the Shurtape Technologies Group of companies as a single, substantial and diversified corporation.”
