Atlanta, GA USA – February 01, 2001 – E/M, a subsidiary of The Morgan Crucible Company plc, has built a new 32,000 square foot, state-of-the-art, processing facility in Evesham, Worcestershire, England. This new facility boasts VOC (volatile organic compounds) reducing air pollution control technology, making it the first coating facility in the United Kingdom with such technology. This technology will allow E/M to apply a wide array of engineered coatings, regardless of the VOC emissions.
The new E/M facility serves many industries including petroleum, automotive, food processing, chemical processing, and aerospace. It houses equipment with a multitude of coating capabilities, including electro-deposition coating, tribological and protective coatings, coatings for aircraft fasteners, automated bulk coating, and high build fluoropolymer coating of parts up to 18’ in length. E/M also has plans for future technology expansion in Evesham.
E/M relocated to their new facility in January 2001 from a smaller facility, also in Evesham. Along with this move, E/M will be relocating its product manufacturing to the new Evesham plant from a facility in Strensham. In addition to the new Evesham facility, E/M also has a second coating facility in the U.K. in Sheffield.
E/M engineered coatings are specified for components that are in a broad range of applications including aerospace, military, automotive, fasteners, electronics, medical, railway, chemical processing and valves and pumps. E/M is best known for its innovations in solid film lubricants, which provide lubrication, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, usage in high temperature and vacuum conditions, increased durability, torque/tension improvement, impact resistance and EMI and RFI shielding,
E/M’s world headquarters are located in Atlanta, GA, USA. The Atlanta location manufactures and applies coatings. E/M applies a wide variety of coatings at facilities in Minneapolis, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Hartford, Los Angeles (2), Philadelphia, San Francisco and the UK.
