Rob "Sugar Bob" Hausslein and his co-owner added roasted nuts to his product line-up, which includes their award-winning smoked maple syrup. Included in the acquisition of the nut-roasting division was a Chinese heat sealing and coding machine.
Sadly, they found that their coding type set was not complete. They were missing a "2" and were faced with using an upside-down "5" or "S" as a substitute.
Not surprisingly, they found making an inferior mark in conflict with their brand.
Katy at Sugar Bob's Finest Kind was tasked with the difficult task of finding the specific coding type they needed while having little helpful information to go on.
The package coding and sealing machine had no markings whatsoever and the original manufacturer could not be determined. Katy took to Google and quickly found Durable Technologies online.

Sugar Bob and Katy were surprised and pleased to discover that Durable Technologies was able to provide compatible brass type that would work with their machine.
"I thought it would lead down a rabbit hole but it led us straight into the heart of can-do made-in-USA old school industrial America with Durable Technologies and we ended up with type that was custom made, affordable, fit our machine like a glove, and coded with crisp definition that exudes pride of workmanship and translates that pride I’m sure all the way to our own customers," said Rob "Sugar Bob".
