Fenner Precision Polymers, a Michelin Group company and a leader in reinforced polymer technology, has begun operations in its new fabric treatment line in Manheim. In the state-of-the-art facility, technical fabrics and textiles are treated with specialised coatings and procured by clients from sectors such as aerospace, infrastructure, and energy.

The company hosted state, county, and local officials for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour of the new $4 million line. On touring the treatment line, visiting officials saw how technical fabrics of varying widths receive multiple passes of specialty resins, the drying method, and the process for precisely measuring the thickness of applied coatings in order to meet clients’ custom specifications. Visitors also learned about the company’s commitment to sustainability and how its operation’s environmental controls support clean, safe, and healthy air standards.

“Fenner Precision Polymers is a shining example of what it will take to rebuild our local, state, and national economies,” said Pennsylvania Senator Ryan P Aument. “At every level of the organisation team members collaborate to bring about the type of innovation that puts Pennsylvania on the map and our citizens back to work. I could not be more proud of their efforts and the engineered solutions they create together here in Manheim.”

“We see this as just one part of a much larger growth story for our company,” said Jack Krecek, divisional managing director, Fenner Precision Polymers. “It’s an investment in our company as well as the surrounding community. In fact, we anticipate filling several new positions to support this operation, and that benefits everyone.”
