Rentapen is in the business of satisfying their customers’ need to reduce costs. It is only with dedication to efficiency, excellence, and customer services by every team member can Rentapen retain their customers and fulfill their mission.
Rentapen’s mission is to provide jobs, training, and opportunities for people who work together to help manufacturers reduce the costs of tooling to make their products. This focus has helped drive Rentapen’s growth and earned its status in the Top 10 along with DUECO.
Rentapen reduces costs for its customers in three ways. First is excellence in 3D weld fixture design and build. Second, is the standardized yet versatile RAPid Tooling Components™. Third, is RAPid Shims™. Rentapen is known as the Shim King. They sell hundreds and thousands of shims each year.
Constantly innovating to better serve their customers, in March Rentapen launched a new service on their website that allows machine designers to order 3D models of parts from Rentapen’s RAPid Tooling Components™ line.
