Lauren Manufacturing’s sister company, LMI Custom Mixing, LLC, has added a third mixing line to its operations that will help both companies meet long-term customer demands.
LMI is a primary provider of polymer compounds used by Lauren Manufacturing to create custom sealing solutions for leading OEMs, designers and builders.
This partnership allows Lauren to improve speed-to-market, maintain high quality standards and advance its research and development program.
Part of an expansion project focused on facility improvements, LMI has also added 50,000 square feet of warehousing and storage as well as upgraded plant infrastructure.
The company previously doubled its production capacity with an expansion completed in 2007. With the addition of the third mixer line, LMI has increased the annual production capacity of its operations to 60 million pounds of rubber, a 50 percent increase.
“We’re incredibly proud to be able to make this investment in U.S. manufacturing,” said LMI General Manager Jim Nixon. “Our vision is to build upon our reputation for operating one of the most advanced facilities of its kind.”
