Edge Rubber Expands Facility in Chambersburg, PA to Meet Growing Demand
Edge Rubber is excited to announce the doubled capacity for coarse crumb rubber of its facility in Chambersburg, PA! Edge Rubber has added a new cracker mill production line, giving the plant double capacity for ambient materials. The plant’s total capacity is now 72 million pounds per year of ambient crumb (in mesh sizes 8 through 30).
This new cracker mill line was installed to meet the growing demand of several of Edge Rubber’s long-standing customers, to support new business, and to improve the cost of production through scale.
“We’ve been so encouraged by the reception from our community and our industry the past few months, and we’re very excited to see this new line up and running,” says Sam Kauffman, Edge Rubber’s new CEO, who has been with the company for many years.
Edge Rubber reopened last November after a significant investment from DC-based Anzu Partners, who have worked closely with Edge Rubber’s dedicated management team to reestablish itself in the rubber industry.
