Chicago, US -- Rubber seal manufacturer Edgetech IG Inc., will locate its first European manufacturing facility in the Midlands, UK.
The plant, which will be located just 90 miles north of London, will manufacture 'Super Spacer' polymer, sponge rubber architectural seals, and service the company's clients across the UK and throughout Europe.
Super Spacers' energy conservation qualities have been recognised by the British Fenestrations Rating Council and the UK Energy Saving Trust, as well as the German Intelligent Architecture Association.
The Chicago office of The British Midlands Development Corp. worked closely with Edgetech, providing it with the business information it needed to decide on its European location.
"The British Midlands Development Corp. helped us understand and work through the options for UK government incentives for locating our plant in the Coventry, England area," said Mike Hovan, president of Edgetech IG Inc., in a 20 July statement.
"Their assistance was critical to our ultimate decision to locate our plant in the UK versus other countries in Europe," he added.
According to the company, the experienced work force in The Midlands, allowed it hire 20 new employees with the talent and performance that it was looking for. ss
