“This alliance is a win-win for everyone,” stated Jon Barber, director at Spraying Systems Co. “Adding Cloud-Sellers’ products allows us to meet more of our customers’ needs. The alliance means we’ll have a high-quality product for just about every imaginable tank cleaning operation.”
Cloud-Sellers also benefits from increased distribution. “We’re extremely pleased to now have hundreds of highly trained sales engineers around the world selling and servicing our products,” said Mike Kemp, product and marketing manager at Cloud-Sellers. “Spraying Systems Co. is very unique. They have local sales offices in more than 90 countries staffed by specialists in spray technology. They have a high level of expertise when it comes to tank-cleaning applications.”
The two companies share similar business practices and philosophies. Both are privately held and have a long history of innovation, evidenced by hundreds of patents and consistently being first to market with new products. The Cloud-Sellers products will be manufactured by Cloud Co. and branded as part of Spraying Systems Co.’s TankJet line.
“The Cloud-Sellers products will continue to be sold under the Cloud-Sellers name to our existing customer base. In addition, the current Cloud-Sellers sales force will also be able to sell Spraying Systems Co.’s line of tank cleaning products,” said Kemp.
The alliance was effective January 1, 2011.
