This, combined with Trelleborg’s significant customer-facing teams and global footprint, will enable us to explore new and exciting ways to deliver value to our customers.”
“Sil-Pro has brought value to its customers through vertical integration,” says Kristian Brok, President of Global Operations Elastomers for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions. “Sil-Pro has a staff of design and development engineers, along with tooling, machining, and automation teams, as well as ISO Class 7 cleanrooms. This is a significant addition to our global footprint and a capability that gives us the ability to take our customers’ projects from conception to full scale manufacturing.”

The acquisition of Sil-Pro will enable us to expand our capabilities, and product and services offerings, to better service our customers and help them achieve their goals.”
