Precision Polymer Engineering, a manufacturer of elastomer O-rings and components, will open a new manufacturing site in Brenham, Texas later this year.
The groundbreaking ceremony held on April 2 initiated the build of a 30,000 ft2 facility which will be up and running by October 2014. The factory will specialize in the manufacture of custom O-rings and other critical elastomer sealing components. As well as compression molding of components for the oil and gas, food and drink, pharmaceutical, and engine manufacturing industries, the capabilities will include cleanroom facilities which will enable manufacture to the exacting standards needed for semiconductor applications. The factory will have its own tool making, extrusion, and inspection facilities.
“At PPE we strive to develop the most advanced materials for the most difficult applications. But on top of that, we operate our manufacturing so that we can be extraordinarily responsive to customers’ needs,” says Paul Gillyon, managing director of PPE. “We believe we have the fastest lead times and our customers tell us that our on-time delivery record is outstanding. We will reproduce all of these attributes in our Texas operation. We know that’s what our oil and gas customers need when the pressure is on their projects and we are 100% confident we can provide the necessary support to contribute to their success.”
The company is based in Blackburn, U.K.
