In 2009 EMKA Beschlagteile GmbH & Co. KG took over the rubber manufacturer Happich in Birmingham. This step enables EMKA to manufacture not only PU-foamed products but also to extrude rubber profiles. Thus the three main construction characteristics of enclosure manufacturing - locks, hinges and gaskets - are now completely produced in-house.
In 2010 EMKA Beschlagteile GmbH & Co. KG took over Sealing Systems La Rioja which considerably expanded the product line of “extruded gaskets”.
The Spanish company Sealing System La Rioja, which is based in Arnedo/Spain, is an established manufacturer of rubber profiles for the automotive industry. With more than 100 employees. Sealing Systems La Rioja has achieved a good reputation among its customers, which come from the automotive and utility vehicle industry as well as other industrial sectors.
Through this takeover EMKA is able to manufacture carrier profiles, hollow section gaskets as well as lip seals (also with varied shore hardness) by use of multiple die-heads. As a result it is possible to use carrier profiles made of braided, stamped steel or PPE.
Furthermore complete frames or endless products, e.g. rings, made of extruded profiles are manufactured in the new EMKA-factory.
Due to the existence of our own testing equipment and laboratories we are able to fulfil customer requirements regarding special quality characteristics for various industrial fields (chemistry, railway, refrigerating engineering / air conditioning / HVAC, etc.).
Due to the takeover of another factory abroad EMKA Beschlagteile GmbH & Co. KG continues to expand its manufacturing range and thus keeps on growing.
“By means of steady growth and innovation we make sure that jobs at home and abroad can be safeguarded. We want to make these modern manufacturing plants one of the topics in intensified discussions with our customers”, is the statement of Mr. Runge, the owner and Managing Director (CEO) of EMKA Beschlagteile GmbH & Co. KG.
