CARY, N.C. (June 23)—Lord Corp. has inked two separate dealsÃone, an alliance with Ageo-Japan based Fukoku Co. Ltd., will expand both company´s global reach, while the other, a joint venture with the Robertson Group, will introduce a new coating system to the marketplace. Lord and Fukoku have agreed to design, manufacture and sell vibration-control products for the highway, rail and rapid transit markets. Lorson Technologies L.L.C., the result of the Lord-Robertson venture, will provide exclusive metal-coating services for Lord´s new MetalJacket technology for rubber-to-metal parts. MetalJacket eliminates the zinc phosphatizing, primer, and post-painting steps usually needed when metal is treated, Lord said.
