ELMET Establishes North American Headquarters

ELMET
February 1, 2012

Austrian Liquid Silicone Rubber Molding Technology Supplier Will Focus on Training Programs and Knowledge Transfer  

ELMET started its North American business operations on January 1, 2012 with the opening of a 6,000 sq. ft. light industrial suite located in Lansing, Michigan. The close proximity to three of the world’s largest silicone rubber suppliers will result in closer collaboration and knowledge transfer.

ELMET will use the new facility as a technology center in which customers can attend training courses on ELMET liquid silicone rubber (LSR) cold runner tooling technology, ELMET LSR dosing systems, and LSR processing. In addition to a large focus on training program offerings, critical standard spare parts will be stocked for shipment within 24 hours of ordering. In the future, ELMET North America plans to offer prototyping and basic repair and refurbishing services.

The high quality precision tooling upon which ELMET’s global reputation was built, will still be designed, manufactured, and tested in Austria by their highly skilled designers, toolmakers, and process technicians.
