While most suppliers are preparing for the future, we are creating it. Our research and development activities are the force behind the patented technologies and innovative products that we bring to process industries worldwide. Our global research and development center, located in Three Rivers, Michigan, features 18 test machines and 43 test positions and includes a tribology laboratory, two isolation rooms, and a learning center with theater-seating for 50. In addition to internal product development activities, our research center allows customers to simulate their own operating conditions and applications to identify and quantify opportunities for improvement.
