CAMBRIDGE, Ohio (July 26) — Rubber seal maker Edgetech IG Inc. said it will open its first European factory in the Coventry, England, area.
The Cambridge-based firm will locate the facility about 90 miles north of London. Edgetech said it will produce its Super Spacer polymer and sponge rubber architectural seals at the plant and service clients in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe.
The factory will employ 20, Edgetech said.
Super Spacers' energy conservation qualities have been recognized by the British Fenestrations Rating Council and the UK Energy Saving Trust, as well as the German Intelligent Architecture Association.
The Chicago office of The British Midlands Development Corp. worked closely with Edgetech, providing it with the business information it needed to decide on its European location.
