Supporting the Healthcare and Medical Industry with Advanced Polymer Engineered Components
Trelleborg is committed to supporting the healthcare and medical industry with advanced polymer engineered components.
Already a leading developer and manufacturer of sealing solutions for the healthcare and medical applications, Trelleborg has recently made significant investments in advanced technology to expand its offerings to its customers.
During 2011, Trelleborg acquired a Swiss-based company with expertise in Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) technology and in particular automation of the process to enable manufacture of precision LSR components in high volume.
With the strategic aim of fulfilling one of Trelleborg’s core promises, global reach local presence, investment has also been made in globalizing the technology; to bring the process to a competence center in the U.S. and making it available in Asia through a manufacturing facility in China. The life sciences industry is seen as a priority growth area for Trelleborg.

This is because we, as a Group, truly believe that Trelleborg can make a difference to our customers’ performance in this highly demanding industry.
