Warwick, NY – In a continuing commitment to satisfy customer requirements in a variety of industries, Mechanical Rubber in Warwick, NY acquired Prestige Rubber Manufacturing Company of Fairfield, NJ in January 2015.

The asset purchase included extrusion dies, mandrels, compounds, expansion joint forms and customer order records. A “one stop shop” for all custom rubber elastomeric needs, Mechanical Rubber will be 100% operational with all of Prestige’s manufacturing capabilities.

Prestige is a leading manufacturer of rubber elastomer expansion joints as well as mandrel-cured wrapped rubber tubing. Products are sold to OEMs, end users and distributors throughout North America and Europe in the commercial, industrial, military, and pharmaceutical markets.

“We at Mechanical Rubber believe that increasing our extrusion portfolio as well as adding rubber expansion joints would expand our capabilities to offer these high quality products to our HVAC, Oil & Gas, material handling and Military/Defense customers as currently provided to our Aerospace customers,” said Cedric Glasper, President and CEO. “We also felt that the legacy established by Precise Products / Prestige Rubber enhances our capabilities and expertise.”

Steve Kelley has joined Mechanical Rubber and will be responsible for National Sales. He brings more than 20 years experience in rubber products sales, as well as six years experience in Aerospace products.
