ST. LOUIS—Recycled rubber products manufacturer Ultimate RB has expanded its capacity for specialty rolled rubber production by 40 percent at the firm's Delphos, Ohio, plant.
A division of St.-Louis-based Accella Performance Materials Inc., Ultimate said it has installed a larger manufacturing process and a state-of-the-art cutting machine at the factory as part of the expansion. A modernized addition to the facility was built to accommodate new equipment.
The new capacity is expected to reduce lead times on specialty rolled rubber products, the firm said.
"We are very pleased to implement this investment to better meet the needs of our customers by expanding our capacity for specialty rubber flooring and underlayment production," according to Hal Stuhl, vice president of Ultimate.
