Elastomeric Component Manufacturer


The Crisis

A full service custom elastomeric component manufacturer using a comprehensive range of thermoset materials specializing in high volume production demands. The company had been experiencing substantial increases in union wages and benefits over the years, which it was unable to pass through to customers. The consequence of these higher costs contributed to the business losing several millions of dollars per year.
