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.

Testimonials

  • I got the bank and it is GREAT; Super Detail; Thanks-A-Lot!!!  

    Jim
  • 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!

  • "Hi ShapeMaster Crew, I have fitted the risers to my M-90 and even though it was only 1”inch it has made a huge difference to the comfort of the riding position. The shape and color are a good match, the overall manufactured product is great. As others have had to do I also moved the clutch control in about 3/8”inch. I am very pleased with the modification and the simple fitting process"

  • Thank you for your help with our dispenser shroud project. Our inquiry was dealt with very effectively through the entire process. The product was delivered on time and matches exactly to what we have had manufactured in the past, for a fraction of the price! Thank you to everyone at ShapeMaster for a job well done!

  • "As an instructor at the Lake Land College Center for Business & Industry, I was tasked to design a manufacturing cell for our Manufacturing Skills Training Lab. We found ShapeMaster by recommendation of another area supplier. Ken Cooley and his team at ShapeMaster were very helpful in providing me with high quality finished pieces as well as reviewing the design of the pieces to insure good fit and operation. They went out of their way to ensure I was satisfied with the results."  

    Randy Strohl, Technical Training Specialist
  • 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

  • Simply stated, because of Shape Master, we now have a beautiful building which is as close to its original restoration as we could determine. You made five different molds and then created replacement parts from these which when we put them up became absolutely impossible to see as different from the originals. The ceiling was so severely damaged that we were concerned that it could never be repaired. The actual labor to repair the damage once we received the new panels from you was about 32 hours. This was well worth the cost and the result speaks for itself. There is simply no other way that we could find to accomplish this without you and the talent at your company. The building prior to this project had a suspended ceiling just under 8 feet high and the upper window sections could not be seen from the inside an don the outside they were simply covered in plywood and painted. You have no idea how much your company helped us. I’m at class now doing insurance updates but what you did for us is absolutely unbelievable. Somebody has to stop in Boscobel and see the results some day.
