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.

  • I just installed my risers on my new-to-me 2006 M50.  I can now turn my bar all the way and still hold on to it!  Thank you so much for making these and almost as important, thanks so much for the detailed directions and photos. They sure made a difference in the installation!  If only all products were as well made and the directions as detailed.  Appreciate it! KRSalmon   You can find these riser blocks and more in our eBay store! http://stores.ebay.com/shapemaster?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

  • "I couldn`t have gotten luckier when I stumbled onto ShapeMaster while searching for someone who could bring my idea to fruition. As a pediatrician by trade, and an independent inventor, I feared that getting reliable help would be a struggle. Some prototypers and manufacturers I approached neither took me seriously, nor treated me professionally. I waited on emails, call backs, feedback, etc. That wasn`t the case with ShapeMaster. When I received my first reply from ShapeMaster`s Ken Cooley and it simply said, "We can help," I knew that I had struck gold. Since that exchange, my experience has been ideal. The staff of each department has been prompt, courteous, and professional...which is monumentally appreciated! And in terms of production, the injection molded piece that ShapeMaster made for me, and the final product that they assembled is exactly what I imagined. Along the way I received feedback, samples, quotes, and even the final product when promised and as quoted - no surprises! ShapeMaster is a well run organization with the utmost integrity, pride in their quality work, and worthy of anyone`s trust. "

  • 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!

  • I`d like to thank you and your team at ShapeMaster for the PETG hemispheres you made for us. Our requirements were uncompromising-6.9 inches in diameter and perfectly spherical. ShapeMaster met those requirements with very high quality and in good time. We were impressed.

  • Hey ShapeMaster Crew-Installed the risers yesterday, and went for a long ride today - they`re great, thank you!  

  • Hi ShapeMaster Crew! It’s right! I received the risers last Thursday but until yesterday I couldn't install them, but now it’s done! So sorry not to respond to you quickly. Well…in a few words it’s simply awesome. I tried the motorcycle this morning and I couldn't describe how much better it is now with the spacers. It gives you the only correct position to enjoy the driving of this motorcycle and it would be wonderful if every Suzuki M800 in the world could have a pair of these spacers. I only can say THANK YOU for your work and everything. You've spared me a lot of back pain and given me a lot of miles of enjoyment with my motorcycle. It maybe sounds corny but it’s only the truth. Thank you, thank you very much. P.S. be sure that I will talk with everyone of my biker friends about Shapemaster and the really professional people who work here.

  • 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

  • ShapeMaster Crew, Just got them on and went out for a test ride. They really make a difference! Install was fairly easy, but I was paranoid about cross-threading the bolts. With the left-over thread lock from the factory, it was hard to judge whether the bolts were going in correctly, but I got them in OK! I also added my own threadlock as per your suggestion. You made some excellent suggestions on your instructions. Covering the tank and forks is a no-brainer, but loosening the controls was a must! Also, I rolled the bars up a little bit per your suggestion, and that made the mod even better! The risers look great, and the seating position is much improved. All in all, great product that I will recommend to anyone with an M90/50 and any other model you make these for. As far as, riding in Vegas, we`re pretty much year-round. Summer gets hot, but other than that, it`s pretty mild. We`re in the mid-60`s for the next week, so you can bet I`ll be out there. Thanks again for the follow-up, and have a great New Year!
