Established in 1973 David Newman set out to create the only company in the country dedicated to manufacturing FDA compliant gaskets, “O”-rings and custom molded parts. He started with production of 1.5” and 2” clamp gaskets. In 1976 the first national distributor came aboard. Soon Newman had a national and international distributor network along with several OEM accounts.
Production expanded over the next few years to include the most popular, as well as hard-to-find gaskets, with expansion into other markets following. A new horizontal injection molder was added to the existing lineup of company equipment, and gave Newman nearly limitless production capabilities of quality, sanitary components.
Newman have a full line of the latest molding and lab equipment in-house to help in both production and quality control – equipment that gives us the kind of advanced expertise and technology that we pass on to you.
The equipment includes a 160-ton Vertical Injection press for EPDM and Viton™ gaskets and other parts. Newman also have a 60-ton Liquid Silicone Injection press for the production of flashless silicone gaskets and “O”-rings for the pharmaceutical industry.
Beyond the new equipment, Newman have upgraded and redesigned all of our compression, injection and Teflon® fluoropolymer tooling. The deflashing process is handled by a cryogenic deflashing unit or is finished by hand when necessary. In addition, every batch of polymer and every lot of gaskets is tested for physical properties and optically inspected to meet tolerances. Newman’s complete line of equipment and upgrades means we are even more precise and efficient in filling your orders.
Today, Newman continues to serve every element of the sanitary processing industries. Along with rubber-based compounds, Newman produces Teflon® fluoropolymer and Silicone components. State-of-the-art equipment in the form of a Liquid Silicone Injection Molder and Vertical Injection equipment are in place. A 22,500 sq. ft. production building expansion was completed and now all production, shipping and storage is under one roof for maximum efficiency.
