Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 27, 2010
Metallized Carbon Corporation, a global leader in the manufacture of oil-free, self-lubricating, carbon-graphite materials for severe service lubrication, announces that it has recently opened a new manufacturing facility in Singapore. The new facility will expand the company’s presence into Asia, provide support for its customers in the Pacific Rim, reduce lead times, and offer competitive pricing.
Metcar Asia Pte. Ltd will machine parts to customer specifications, using highly engineered carbon materials shipped from the company’s USA division. The Singapore facility will use the latest machine tool technology to make Metcar mechanical components, such as bearings and seal rings, ideally suited for use in pumps, mixers, and meters, where the parts must run submerged in liquids such as water, gasoline, solvents, strong chemicals, liquefied gases, and heat transfer fluids.
These components can also be manufactured for running dry in high temperature applications, where they are well suited for high temperature bearing assemblies for continuous dryers used in manufacturing building products, as well as bearings for Hi Temp dampers, louvers and ovens.
Metcar Asia will provide materials approved for use by many global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), including manufacturers of industrial pumps and mechanical seals for the process and power, oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, building products, and mining industries.
“Our new facility will allow Metcar to offer quicker delivery times and competitive pricing to our customers in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, as well as the rest of Asia,” said Matthew Brennan, Chief Operating Officer of Metcar. “We offer superior highly engineered materials, manufactured to customer’s exacting specifications at a competitive price and reduced lead time.”
Metcar also sells the materials in machinable blank form, which customers can machine to their own specifications.
Metcar Asia Pte. Ltd is located at 7 Kallang Place #04-11, Singapore 339153. The company’s chief executive officer, Ishizawa Satoshi, can be reached by telephone at 65-6299-5790, by fax at 65-6299-5791, or via email at Ishizawa(at)metcar(dot)com(dot)sg or sales(at)metcar(dot)com(dot)sg.
