No one could have seen it coming. On an early morning in January, a fire ripped through a manufacturing plant in the outskirts of London, destroying the industrial space and along with it 7 converting machines and production lines. A blaze so large it could be seen for miles, it took fifteen fire engines and 97 firefighters to extinguish the flames. A leading manufacturer of canister wipes, the company knew they must respond swiftly and with resolve in order to keep the business going. Their immediate move to an old factory space, coupled with great partnerships to facilitate new warehouse space and custom automation machinery allowed them to barely skip a beat.
ELSNER Deepens Commitment to Designing and Building Machinery for Filtration Industry
ELSNER has announced the purchase of the design and IP rights to SCM Slitter Inc.’s Element Trim Saw. The trim saw is designed to quickly and efficiently trim the ends of industrial liquid filtration elements, such as spiral wound reverse osmosis filters.
The acquisition is a logical ‘next step’ for ELSNER who has been building automated folding, gluing and rolling machinery for the filtration industry for nearly 20 years. With that experience, ELSNER has been looking to take a larger role in the filtration industry as a part of their continued growth and strategic planning.
In the words of Elsner's lead R & D Engineer, YES!
"The ENR 1000 was and IS a great machine for us. But when we first built the fully automatic rewinder machine in 2003, well since then we've learned something," said John Mathy, Elsner Lead R & D Engineer. "In designing the ENR-G3 we've listened to our customers, both external AND internal. We've tried to make it easier for our customers."
Elsner's Jay Roth and Mike Lynch are attending INDEX 17 in Geneva Switzerland this week. Elsner's solutions for innovative converting equipment can be found at Stand 2261 through April 7.
Elsner has been named as one of three finalists in the Competition for the 2017 World of Wipes Innovation Award®. Votes will be collected at the World of Wipes® International Conference June 12-15 in Nashville, Tennessee to select the winner.
It's hard to tell by looking at the modest Hanover headquarters of Elsner Engineering Works Inc., but the company makes machines that ship all over the world, its president Bert Elsner II said.
