WEINHEIM, Germany (April 23, 2008) — Freudenberg Seals and Vibration Control Technology is investing more than $1.5 million at its Weinheim material development plant and adding a batch-off unit to each of its two largest mixing lines.
The Weinheim facility produces compounds for seals manufactured throughout Europe. The firm said the factory has been running at full capacity and needed to expand to offset demand.
More than 9,000 metric tons of compound will be produced at the plant this year.
The first batch-off installation is on line and the second is expected to follow during the summer months.
