Reelcraft Industries Introduces Reeltek New, Lighter Yet Stronger Hybrid Reel

Combines composite components with industrial steel.

COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. - Reelcraft Industries, one of the world's largest manufacturers of reels for industrial, automotive, petroleum and agricultural applications, has unveiled a new hybrid reel, "ReelTek." The hybrid design includes a base and arm made from industrial-grade steel, a spool constructed of lightweight, engineered composite components and an industrial-grade swivel making it perfect for light industrial applications.

"There's no product on the market right now like ReelTek," said Rex Larkin, marketing manager for Reelcraft. "With its exceptional strength and overall lighter weight, ReelTek is a perfect product for a variety of applications and markets that, until now, had only lower-quality options."

Larkin noted that ReelTek would be an excellent, cost-effective choice for both light industrial, commercial and homeowner applications. The new product's strength and lighter weight would be an excellent choice for use in maintenance shops, assembly lines, machine shops, garden shops, garages, woodworking shops.

Easy maintenance is another plus for ReelTek. The unit's composite-material spool permanently contains an industrial grade drive spring that protects it from the environment, providing for safe and simple maintenance. Steel parts are individually powder-coated making them as corrosion-resistant as the composite materials.

The latch mechanism of ReelTek is mounted on the arm, rather than on the base, making quick-change adjustments easier and assuring the hose will always retract onto the reel, even when fully extended.

Headquartered in Columbia City, Ind., Reelcraft Industries is one of the world's leading manufacturers of high quality industrial and specialty reels. Founded in 1971, the company
produces more than 2,500 models of reels under the Reelcraft and Nordic brand names. Reelcraft's worldwide customer base is diverse, including representatives of the automotive,
marine, chemical, rental, welding, L.P. gas, food processing, petroleum, aviation, agricultural and electrical markets.
