ALLENDALE, Mich. (Feb. 13)—Nicholas Plastics Inc. has signed an agreement with Derby Cellular Products Inc. to add EPDM sealing systems to its line of plastic and thermoplastic vulcanizate vehicle seals. Derby, a privately held company, supplies primary, secondary, door glass and underhood EPDM seals to the automotive, heavy truck, agricultural and appliance markets. Nicholas said it expects the pact to increase its sales by as much as 15 percent this year. "While TPEs and TPVs gain wider acceptance among automotive (original equipment manufacturers), there is a continuing need for EPDM seals in primary door seals and underhood applications," said Terry Nicholas, president and CEO of Nicholas.
