Stay up-to-date with all the happenings at Core International.
Core International, LLC (“Core”) dramatically increased its engineered rubber products production capacity and capability in the first quarter of 2014 with manufacturing joint ventures (“JVs”) in Mexico City, Mexico, and Odessa, Texas, in addition to its existing manufacturing interest in Vajra Rubber Products (P) Limited, located in Kerala, India.
Core partnered with Aztec Polymer Products SA de CV in Mexico City, and Pheasant Rubber Company, Inc. in Odessa, Texas. Core’s parent company, Core Polymer Moulders Holdings, LLC, is the majority partner in both joint ventures.
With the addition of these manufacturing JVs and Core’s ongoing partnership in India, the Core International Group’s four operating companies working in sync with each other are positioned to provide a unique solution to customers with global operations and corresponding supply chain requirements by offering design, manufacturing and supply chain solutions for highly engineered rubber molded products regionally. This ultimately saves direct cost, trims lead times, and decreases working capital requirements for customers.
While each of the three manufacturing locations have standard equipment and processes to produce consistent products indistinguishable by end users they also each have unique capabilities.
All of the companies distribute the Core Oil Field Replacement Rubber Product line of Annular Blow Out Preventer Elements, Pipe Wipers, Stripper Rubbers and a variety of other consumable rubber products for oil & gas drilling and service companies.
Finally, Core International LLC provides design, finite element analysis, logistical support, and distribution services for the entire group and its global customer base. The Houston based headquarters staff is able to coordinate regional and global project management, single-point order routing through the entire group, and logistics management.
"We are excited about offering regional and global solutions to our customer base. They requested a solution to their ever lengthening supply lines and that is what we are providing. We have engineered molded rubber products production and support capabilities in South Asia, Latin America, and the Permian Basin - all of which is supported by Engineering, Project Management, Customer Service, Logistics and Procurement professionals in Houston. We can help you meet your goals to centralize purchasing or decentralize purchasing to make you more competitive in your industry," said Core CEO, Cody W. Johnson, JD.
