Closed Cell Sponge Seals and Transitional Parts

Metro is one of the only companies that can mold smooth one-piece durable sponge using our exclusive microcell technology,

We are also experts at those complex extrusion transition corners and ends. These transition components are used on autos, boats, buses, motorhomes, fire engines, special cabs, buildings, and anything exposed to the weather.

Your company will save time and money during assembly, and the customer will appreciate the precise seals. Extrusions can only bend so far without collapse, distortion, and stress. Let us show you the advantages of getting away from universal seals. The exact fit saves time and money.

Difficult Design Problems Solved

Our story dates to 1918 when John Hajicek started the first rubber manufacturing plant west of the Mississippi River. Hutchinson Rubber Company, as it was known then, has undergone many changes and missions, from manufacturing tire inner tubes for the first cars. Today it remains a family-run company that focuses on making parts that solve problems for companies that no else can.

Metro Moulded Parts, Inc. has supplied custom rubber and plastic products to industry using our state-of-the-art equipment and over 200 years combined experience working with polymers.

From coating metal parts with sponge rubber, to making custom-molded products from custom-machined dies, you can rely on Metro for the experience, know-how and advanced methods to provide you with the results you want and need.

A Metro resale program will provide higher profits with less hassle.
