Jaeger-Unitek Launches New Extrusion Line

Jaeger-Unitek Sealing Solutions, a leading thermoplastic and rubber profile extrusion producer, announced the launch of its new million-dollar, four-component extrusion line in its La Porte, Ind. facility.

The company said the new extrusion line is capable of producing complex, tight-tolerance extruded profiles which can utilize up to four different polymers. Company officials cited continued growth in its industrial, automotive and recreational vehicle markets which led to the expanded production area and investment to serve a growing application and customer base.

“Our customers continue to expand in their respective market areas, requiring high performance, engineered thermoplastic materials with outstanding properties in very harsh environments.  We find our RV customers demanding material and process technologies which deliver parts consolidation, ease of assembly and durability when exposed to extreme temperature cycling and UV light. Our greatest strength is our people and how we apply unique materials knowledge to help our customers improve performance and reduce total costs”, said Kevin Casey, president of Jaeger-Unitek.
