“We are very excited about having Hosco, IDS and Classic Precision join CFT,” says Shelley Bausch, president of Carlisle Fluid Technologies. “Not only does this help us bring a broader, complementary product offering to our existing finishing customers, but it also allows us to expand into growing new markets that are a critical part of our vision.”

These acquisitions represent the first of many steps in this exciting journey for us and our customers.”
