In 1994 Marvin Whiteman, former owner of Whiteman Industries was approached to design a part for a table top paper punch machine. Marvin and his team had a history and passion for building tough high performance products. They had designed and built race cars and motorcycles. Marvin and his team felt they could design a better, more flexible and efficient family of paper punches. So together they started Performance Design, Inc. and built their first table top punch with interchangeable dies called the Versa Punch.
Soon thereafter they realized customers wanted more flexibility to add modules to decrease the time it took them to punch and stack documents, and modules to address the binding of documents with plastic coil, double loop wire or comb.
So the concept modular table top punches and binding solutions was born. They designed and manufactured paper punches and finishing equipment that could be configured in a variety of ways to solve a wide range of document punching and binding challenges. The new modular designed products were branded Rhin-O-Tuff.
Today Rhin-O-Tuff offers a full range of paper punching and document binding systems. The Rhin-O-Tuff brand of equipment is known for high quality and unsurpassed durability by thousands of commercial and corporate users.
Whether the need is to increase productivity in a copy center, bindery, digital printing environment, or to add the convenience of doing binding “in-house” for a corporate office, Rhin-O-Tuff has the binding, document finishing, or document handling solution to handle all your demands.
