When people in the Corridor think about us, it is hard to remember Clickstop’s brands.
We have marketed ourselves to the community as a cool place to work, a top work place, a fast growing company, and even that building in the middle of an Urbana cornfield. But obviously, there is a lot more going on behind the scenes at Clickstop than a bunch of awesome people gathering to have fun. The short explanation is that we are a multi-brand merchant. What that means is Clickstop is the parent company to a handful of brands, which we own, operate, and employ the people who make it all happen. We are the home of US Cargo Control, Fasteners Plus, EcoFoil, Space Savers, and Just Plastic Boxes.
The majority of our business is done through US Cargo Control, making up about 85% of the business. Most of our employees work on the US Cargo Control brand and help us drive traffic to our site, take phone calls, manufacture straps and nets for our customers, and pick, pack, and ship out our products. Operated by our talented Bing team: Fasteners Plus, EcoFoil, Space Savers, and Just Plastic Boxes. This small group of seven does all of the marketing, sales, and shipping for these brands.
So, now that you know a bit about what the company Clickstop does, let’s dive into a specific brand, EcoFoil.
We asked the Bing Team to tell us a little bit about the EcoFoil brand. Here is what they had to say.
What is EcoFoil?
EcoFoil is a Radiant Barrier insulation. Where traditional types of insulation slow down heat, our product is stopping 96% of the heat transfer. Foil insulation is an alternative option that uses the benefits of foil to create smarter insulation assemblies.
This is an eco-friendly product that helps you save energy and reduce your carbon footprint by reflecting heat back into its source. This simple property works to keep your home or building cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, which increases the energy efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Radiant barrier is used in combination with traditional mass insulation or building methods like radiant heating systems to maximize overall energy savings for living spaces. It is also used alone in commercial and agricultural applications.
What types of customers does EcoFoil get?
Our customers cover about every type. We have individuals installing our product in their commercial or residential projects. and we have contractors using it at customer’s commercial or residential projects. We also get re-sellers purchasing from us. EcoFoil has also partnered with Tiny r(E)volution in their goal to build a 300 square foot home for $10,000 or less. Check out the project here!
What are some standard uses for EcoFoil?
Our most common applications are in the attic where a lot of homes take in heat in the summer and lose it in the winter. Also a lot of people use them in pole barns. Some of our alternative applications are to make bags to transport oil based paintings, inside boxes to ship candies and fruit, curtains inside of an RV or even to make lunch bags.
What are your goals for EcoFoil?
To continue to educate customers on the benefits of Radiant Barrier and how cost effective it is. We would like to be recognized as the best in the industry for Radiant Barrier with our commitment to service, education, and quality products at great prices.
How does your team work together to get customers the information, education, and products they need?
Our team is committed to educating consumers on the many benefits of Radiant Barrier. There are a variety of uses for our EcoFoil products, and it is important to us that our customers get the right product for their project in the most cost effective manner. We want the process to be simple. There are some inferior products in the industry and that is why we offer a 10 year warranty. We stand behind the quality of the product. We pride ourselves on our knowledge and look forward to making an even bigger impact in educating on Radiant Barrier and it’s benefits to consumers. Everything from how cost effective of an alternative it is, ease of installation to its environmental impact.
What do you see happening in the next five years for the EcoFoil brand?
Radiant Barrier has become more common in the insulation industry as consumers have learned more about the benefits. That awareness only continues to increase. We want to continue to be a leader in this industry and grow the brand along with it.
