About Us

Who We Are

In January 1990, ShapeMaster was formed because we saw a need to provide buyers, engineers, inventors, and designers with the ability to order small or large quantities of solutions in plastics and other materials for the manufacturing of their products; regardless of their size, they receive the same high level quality of service.

Our centrally located Ogden, Illinois facility has since expanded three times to accommodate the latest technology, including new thermoformers, allowing us to enhance our production abilities to better serve our customers. From vacuum forming, drape forming, and pressure forming to CNC machining and custom fabrication, we take pride in our ability to take your project from conceptual design to production including 2D or 3D drawings, materials research,custom tooling, prototyping, replication of existing parts, and custom package design – all within our facility to maximize your return on investment.

Our People

Our Midwestern-based work force is comprised of people who maintain the production expertise, technical knowledge, competence, training, and creativity needed to effectively and efficiently serve our customers’ needs. We combine a passion to innovate with a passion to provide superior customer service, enabling us to deliver positive results which lead not only to the success of our customers but also to the success of our company.

The Way We Do Business

Our standard of excellence is based on the philosophy "Swear to your own hurt, and change not." This refers to keeping our word when we commit to something, including pricing, quality standards, precision, delivery times, etc. Our team does whatever it takes to get the job done to keep our promise and exceed customer expectations, regardless of the effort, even if at our own expense. We know that word inevitably gets around with regard to how you treat customers. Words like flexibility, honesty, integrity, and dependability are associated with ShapeMaster’s customer relations and we work hard to continue this tradition. We’ve built our business and our reputation by exploring and understanding customers’ needs, discovering ways to meet those needs, and delivering exactly what our customers need when they need it.

  • Hi ShapeMaster Crew, Thank you for the letter—I just waited for the weekend to write you back….The risers were installed by my local Suzuki dealer(I did not take on myself to install this important part)—please, pass to Ken my thanks and respect! Today, I am even finding myself with “difficulties” to explain how comfortable I am feeling, just because I AM NATURALLY FEELING EXCELLENT—means, if I would get my bike first with these risers—I just would say “excellent,” everything comfortable! But I had time to drive without Ken’s risers, so I can compare. Just two days ago I realized I am not speaking about back pain—can you imagine?! I naturally felt so good with these risers that I even forgot about the previous pain—this is saying a lot! I think it is our (risers) happiness to have a person who is a rider himself, analyzing the performance, and making goods(because plus to everything he is also a skillful guy), which are improving our riding—I am speaking about Ken. Again, my respect and thanks! Do not forget—I am waiting for other developments…Thank you very much again, excellent idea and very well done!

  • "As a new and inexperienced inventor, I was completely clueless as to how to get started with my idea. You and your staff have been extremely helpful with the development and designing of my product, and I am more than thankful for that."

  • They are PERFECT. They actually make low speed easier to steer and much more comfortable in position with the stock drag bars. Beautiful job on them. The bike had pull backs on when I got it - and I put the stock bars back on. Left you very favorable feedback - thanks.

  • Our 3d printing service keeps a Grand Canyon vacation destination moving!  Say…just wanted to let you guys know that we finally got the time to install one of the parts you guys fabricated for us and it went in beautifully and works like it should.  I hope that the nylon wears well and that we get good service out of the component.  I will keep you posted. Anyway…so far-so good and I am sure that I will be sending more work your way. I have shared this project with a lot of people and everyone is very interested in your services. Thanks, Mike

  • “Woohoo...it arrived today Ken. Thanks...looks great…can`t wait to get it onto my M50! Great design...and I like the silver grill. Thanks!"

  • Hello there. Just wanted to drop a line and thank you for making the bar risers for the Boulevard M50. I recently got a sweet deal on a nice 2009 M50 and saw on motorcycleforums.net that you make risers for the bikes. I ordered a set from your Ebay store and installed them last week. Took about an hour and it went smooth. Very detailed instructions. I heated up the stock studs and they came right out and I Loc-tited the new ones in just for safety’s sake. Being a shorter guy (5’5”) the extra height now with the risers makes for a more comfortable riding position. Just wanted to let you know you have another satisfied customer! Regards, Mark

  • I appreciate your outstanding customer service. The risers arrived on Thursday; I installed them Saturday on my wife`s 2009 M50. She loves them and she was comfortable riding the bike all weekend. Now she doesn`t get a sore back or tired arms after riding a few hours. The directions were good, which I especially appreciated, and after heeding them had no problems making the upgrade. The tip: reusing the torch to heat the bolts to loosen the lock tite on the bolts was especially useful. Thanks alot. Excellent customer service!! Thank you for promptly taking care of me. Have a wonderful day.

  • Dear Ken, I wanted to drop you a note and thank you for your participation in the development and manufacturing of our”BAG-R-BOX Saddlebag Insert Trays” product. I found working with you very pleasant, informative and worthwhile. I also appreciate the professional manner by which you and your staff conduct business. The product has turned out just as I had envisioned it, when we first began discussing my idea. We’re very pleased with the outcome. The manufacturing process went smoothly and I have found not defects in material or workmanship amongst my inventory. The four-position mold that you are maintaining for me will make re-manufacturing in quantity a breeze. I look forward to working with you again soon.
