Rogers Corp., a developer and manufacturer of specialty materials for transportation/automotive, consumer, imaging, communications and computer applications, has launched its wholly owned subsidiary, Rogers Technologies Suzhou Co. Ltd (RSZ), in Suzhou, China. Rogers Technologies is expected to add manufacturing capability for the ENDUR product line currently produced by the Rogers Elastomer Components Division, whose facility is located in Connecticut, U.S.

"The ever-growing demand from our customers for low-cost components is the primary reason for adding manufacturing capacity in China for some of our ENDUR products," commented David Smith, VP of Rogers Elastomer Components Division. "Another advantage is that we will now be in close proximity to many of our customers' manufacturing facilities."

Earlier on, Rogers signed a lease for a 25,400 square feet which will produce ENDUR rollers and other components serving the imaging and computer markets. The company plans to begin producing qualification samples by the end of this month, and commence full production in January 2003.

And in conjunction with the second leasing for another 20,000 sq. ft facility adjacent to the first building, RSZ is scheduled to commence manufacturing Nitrophyl floats in March 2003. Nitrophyl specialty floats serve the automotive, liquid propane, marine and small engine markets as well as other uses in general liquid level sensing and monitoring equipment. Nitrophyl floats will also continue to be produced by Rogers Elastomer Components Division in South Windham, Connecticut.
