Touch ‘n Seal CPDS 1000 Offers Affordable Business Expansion Opportunity
The CPDS 1000 is an inexpensive, low-maintenance, portable constant pressure spray foam dispensing system
ST. LOUIS—June 2, 2010—As the owner of BCL Drywall & Insulation in Richmond, Kentucky, Mary Lou Dargavell is always on the lookout for ways to grow her business. After multiple clients inquired about insulation projects, Dargavell started investigating options for adding that service. However, what she found was way beyond her price point -until she found Touch ‘n Seal’s CPDS 1000 Constant Pressure Foam Dispensing System.
“When we started looking, my husband and I couldn’t see how we could get into the market. All of the options we looked at were $150,000 machines or systems, and we didn’t want to make that kind of investment in something we weren’t sure about,” says Dargavell. “Then we met with the Touch ‘n Seal rep. The CPDS machine was affordable for us; it was something we felt we could afford to take a chance on.”
The CPDS 1000 is an inexpensive, low-maintenance, portable constant pressure spray foam dispensing system. It uses an internal air compressor to deliver higher foam yield at more than twice the speed of foam kids. A unique double-valved disposable canister ensures consistent foam flow and reduced chemical waste, making it ideal for use in residential and commercial sealing and insulating applications.
The system applies polyurethane spray foam to horizontal or vertical surfaces. Hoses up to 150 feet long are available, allowing for jobsite portability and versatility. No chemical calibration is required. With an empty weight of less than 155 pounds and a 24” by 33” footprint, the CPDS 1000 fits in the back of a standard truck and easily navigates through standard doorways and entrances.
After watching the instructional DVDs and learning the basics, Dargavell was ready to put her unit to the test, using the CPDS 1000 to insulate an entire house. The result? “The project turned out even better than we expected,” she says. “The machine was easy transport and easy to use. We were very, very pleased with how it went.”
In fact, not only did the job go well, it also went very quickly. “We had allotted one week to finish the job, but we had it done in two days. That’s highly unusual in this business; typically we’re pushing to get things done on-time,” Dargavell adds.
Dargavell says one of the things she appreciates most about the unit is all of the support that comes with the purchase. Not only does it come with instructional DVDs, but the website has loads of information and how-to’s on everything from using the unit to cleaning the hoses after a job. And the customer support team at Touch ‘n Seal is just a phone call away. “Everything they say about it is true,” says Dargavell. “It’s a great product, and they give you tons of support. The company is very good to work with. We’re really pleased.”
Based on her experience so far, Dargavell sees this as opening the doors to significant new business opportunities for her company. “This is helping us become more versatile, and we feel like it’s going to be a good portion of our business going forward,” she concludes.
