Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

“Carl has been working with Jemco Plastic Products Corp. assisting with our expansion into the United States and he has been instrumental in Jemco achieving this goal. Carl works with many high quality rotational molders to make them even better. He achieves this by bringing his 40 + years of experience of working with and directing one of North America’s premier rotational molding companies. By implementing systems and strategies with a hands on approach, his clients experience a major reduction in scrap parts, improved efficiencies, higher levels of quality control and an overall healthier bottom line. Carl is very well connected with in the rotational molding community, and has many contacts for everything from tooling to hardware and resins. I have found Carl’s level of integrity and professionalism beyond reproach. Jemco considers Carl to be an invaluable resource and plans to continue to work with Carl as we grow not only domestically but internationally as well!”

Carl came in and worked closely with our operators and supervisors, as well as our management team. We look forward to the decrease in our scrap and improved efficiencies. We are definitely bringing Carl in again to continue to work with us and check on our progress. It has been a great investment for us!

Sterling Technologies, Inc.

Carl came very highly recommended from many long tenured rotation molding personnel and he was able to come into our new company and help us with some process issues we were having during our molding cycles and help us to reduce scrap and produce high quality product with some minor adjustments and also added some real value to our process flow. With his many years of experience and knowledge it was very evident why he was recommended to us at Tri-Ven and we are very happy he was able to come to our assistance on such short notice. We will definetly be looking at working with Carl again in the very near future.

Tri-Ven – Operations Manager

I have known, and worked with Carl for thirty years. Carl’s depth of knowledge and experience has proven to pay dividends to a number of Jerico Plastic customers in just the past year. I would not hesitate to recommend Carl to any molder to address any molding issue.

President, Jerico Plastic Industries

A little over a year ago, I decided to do my own rotational molding that I had been outsourcing. I didn’t know anything about rotational molding, but someone got me in touch with Claerbout Consulting. Carl came in and showed me how to get started and taught me some of the tricks of the trade he’s learned over his career. With his help, we have started producing high quality products and I have now even had our company highlighted on the cover and inside the Rotoworld Magazine. I still work with Carl and I would highly recommend his services for anyone needing help with their rotational molding needs.

Carl and I have worked together for over two years on the Pine Hills Country Club Board of Directors. During this time Carl has been an excellent resource and mentor in helping develop our management team, improve employee productivity and employee engagement. His insights have been critical in the areas of management recruitment and the assessment and coaching of both star employees and problem employees.

Carl is someone I worked with when I was the General Manager of the Lakeshore Chinooks and he is part of the Ownership Group. Carl’s business insight and vision were always welcome and helpful. In addition, Carl is someone who leads by example with his integrity, work ethic and general willingness to help. He is a real asset to the organization and someone that makes a positive impact in all his business endeavors.
