To accommodate the ramp-up in requests for product testing and validation, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions added 1000 square feet to the Product Testing Laboratory at its HA Traub Technical (HAT) Center. The addition to the facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana will allow for more extensive testing of rotary seals, specialty aerospace sealing, and environmental testing.

The Product Test Laboratory is a part of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Research and Development Center for the Americas, which provides materials testing, materials development, product engineering, and product development for Trelleborg’s sealing product line.

“We are very excited about this expansion, as it affords us the opportunity to leverage new opportunities and support the continued growth of our sealing business,” says Colin Macqueen, Director of Technology for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in the Americas. “Well known for its decades of expertise and R&D innovations in sealing solutions, this investment further demonstrates Trelleborg’s commitment to quality, innovation, and operational excellence over the long term.”
