Precision Polymer Engineering (PPE) announced the official opening of its new manufacturing facility in Brenham, Texas on 12 February 12 2015.

The new site, which began production in November 2014, manufactures high performance compression molded components for the oil and gas industry as well as critical components for semiconductor and heavy equipment applications.

Strategically placed near Houston, the hub of the American oil & gas industry and the Californian semiconductor manufacturing base, the new 30,000sq ft site complements PPE’s existing manufacturing facility in the UK and will include its own tool making, extrusion and inspection departments in line with PPE’s flexible operating model.

“We have made significant investment in the new Houston facility, both in capital equipment and experienced personnel which will further assist us in delivering our value proposition to our core oil and gas, semiconductor and heavy equipment markets,” says Paul Gillyon, PPE managing director. “We are all very excited about this new resource, which includes a state-of-the-art cleanroom, and the opportunities it will bring to PPE and our customers.”

Sealing solutions play a significant part in the success of many companies across a wide range of industries. Whether its oil and gas exploration, semiconductor manufacturing or heavy duty equipment such as marine diesel engines, each industry requires different types of high performance seals in order to conform to increasingly stringent regulations. However, due to the expense and complexity involved in the manufacture of high performance elastomer materials, most components are manufactured to order where the process of acquiring appropriate, high performance seals can be challenging and extensive. It is therefore important that any provider of sealing solutions can deliver materials of the highest quality in the shortest possible timeframes.
