CONTECH began in the early 1960s as an equipment manufacturer and producer of vinyl decals and graphic markings for an emerging industry. The company s early developments of thermal die-cutting techniques helped stimulate the growth of a market that didn t exist. CONTECH s industrial sheeter systems are able to handle the ever-growing number of new materials and products. The latest computer-aided design software is used to design equipment that often combines complex hydraulic, pneumatic, electronic and mechanical systems operated by microprocessor controls. The company s emphasis on engineering assures the most efficient equipment design, even on its smallest, least complex sheeter systems. CONTECH is located in Goddard, Kan.
