Since 1972 Perlane Sales has been a leading design and engineering source for some of the world's most reputable brands.
PERLANE IS FOUNDED
Chet Perry and his wife, Paulie Lane started Perlane Sales as a manufacturer's rep organization. They represented the RIVNUT® by the BF Goodrich company.
2 years later, Jim Seidell, Chris Seidell and Ken DeCrane purchased Perlane and became partners.
A CHANGE OF HANDS
In 1987 the Perlane assets were sold to Mr. Herb Seidell and Mr. Ken DeCrane (RIVNUT® marketing Manager from BF Goodrich) was hired to manage the operations.
In 1989 Perlane also introduced ITW Nexus to their product lines that they offered.
Perlane becomes a distributor for SouthCo and starts carrying enclosure hardware.
Component Solutions Group purchased the majority shares of Perlane Sales and welcomes them to a new family of companies.
NORTH AMERICAN ENGINEERING
Perlane breaks into the northeast marketing and the Aerospace & Defense industry due to a joint venture with North American Engineering.
Perlane Sales expands into the Michigan Rivet nut market with a joint venture with G.J. Sunberg.
BLUE GRASS MANUFACTURING
In 2019 we added Blue Grass Manufacturing to our family. They have been excelling at precision machined components along with custom assembly and sorting services since 1962.
From 1988-2005 Perlane is rapidly expanding! With the addition of specialty fasteners from ITW, SouthCo, Sherex and Industrial Rivet, they enter into new marketplaces.
In 2022 our family of companies was acquired by the BUFAB Group out of Sweden. This only strengthened our product offerings, resources, and capabilities.
