Today the Isoten line includes vacuum tension rolls, vacuum chill rolls and vacuum belts.
The Webex acquisition includes all Isoten entities, including brand rights, product and parts inventory as well as all proprietary designs and technical documentation. Tim Oliver, product applications manager for the Isoten line at CCR, will join Webex as the full-time Isoten customer service manager; CCR president Lee Fennema will also be actively involved in supporting customer transitions during the acquisition period.
