Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has relocated seal manufacturing from existing premises to a newly constructed building in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire in England. This consolidates current production of high-technology components into a best-in-class facility.
With 141 employees, the manufacturing site is one of over 30 that Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has worldwide. It incorporates production of the company’s advanced perfluoroelastomer Isolast® and high-end FKM Resifluor™, along with fabrication of giant O-Rings and seals by the unique FlexiMold™ process, innovative rubber to metal technologies and leading-edge custom moldings. Within its 53,820 sqare miles /5,000 square meters, it also houses a newly equipped materials test laboratory and the UK research and development center.

To meet the needs of aerospace, an industry that accounts for a large proportion of Tewkesbury’s production, special packaging and handling of components is combined with strict quality control procedures. For clients in hygienic sectors or for those who demand super-clean components, such as semiconductor, there is a Class 100 cleanroom.
The construction and move into Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Tewkesbury took place progressively over the last year, with the new production site becoming fully occupied and functional in February 2008. And in keeping with Supply Chain Quality requirements, the complete relocation activity has been shared with and scrutinized by many major external customers.
