Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies is launching a new Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers (ARPM) committee. This new working group will focus on the evolving technical needs of seals and gaskets manufacturers throughout the world, said Joseph Walker, global director, Advanced Materials Development for Freudenberg-NOK. As one of the largest seals and gaskets companies to join the ARPM – a trade association dedicated to the advancement of rubber products manufacturing – Freudenberg-NOK will take a lead role in establishing committee membership and setting an itinerary to leverage individual corporate expertise to benefit the industry in its entirety.
“Freudenberg-NOK’s decision to join ARPM and facilitate the creation of the rubber seals and gasket committee represents a watershed moment for the association”, said Troy Nix, ARPM executive director. “Their leadership on the committee will be a critical component of moving the association’s initiative. It’s a great moment for ARPM and the industry, and we are proud that they want to be a part of what our community is accomplishing.” Freudenberg-NOK will officially join ARPM and launch the committee in January. It will be open to all seals and gaskets manufacturers working across diverse industrial sectors.
