Cutting and Seals Manager

Providing seals expertise since 1998.

Taking rubber technology to the next level.

In a world where material innovation equals success, we have made rubber technology our future.

The progress made by technical developments in other engineering disciplines creates new and exciting challenges for us every day. Depending on the industry our customers are in, they want seals and components to be increasingly smaller (or larger!), lighter, to cope with harsher chemicals and temperatures, to work in conjunction with other materials and technologies. In essence, they demand more. And in response, we step up – and it’s what we thrive on.
