CINCINNATI, Ohio, May 3, 2011 - RelaDyne, Inc., the equipment reliability focused company launched in November 2010, announced it has strategically aligned with Des-Case Corporation, the leading manufacturer of contamination control products for industrial lubricants, to market desiccant breather filters and other contamination control products and services. The Des-Case products and services will complement RelaDyne's current distribution offering of lubricants, fuels, chemicals and lubrication related products and services to its industrial customer base. This alignment will also help to broaden RelaDyne's range of solutions in their Services Division - Field Reliability Management (FRM).
Des-Case was founded on innovation to solve lubrication problems, and it continues to design enhancements to the current product line as well as provide customers with unique products and services for their particular company or industry.

"These services range from lubrication best practices training to hands-on implementation of lubrication process and procedure programs designed to reduce equipment downtime, increase efficiency, and improve the profitability of customers."
The strategic alliance between RelaDyne and Des-Case includes a co-branded label for desiccant breather filters, filtration products and reliability services, benefiting both companies and industrial customers that want to drive reliability into their businesses.
"RelaDyne's FRM division is committed to developing and implementing comprehensive lubrication solutions for our customers; and our alliance with Des-Case brings an expanded array of industry leading contamination control products to our Distribution and FRM offerings and leverages the unique talents and capabilities of both of our companies," states Jay Hurt.
The agreement comes as a natural step forward for both RelaDyne and Des-Case as they continue to strive for exceptional performance to give customers the best lubrication and contamination control solutions in the industry.
