Morse Rubber Completes Metso Acquisition

Monday, December 19, 2005
Morse Rubber LLC completed a purchase of assets, which include various product ranges and the Keokuk, Iowa manufacturing facility, from Metso Minerals Industries. The acquired products include Morse Marine Bearings, marine bumpers and engineered components. The manufacturing facility comprises 120,000 square ft. under roof with capabilities that include rubber to metal bonding; large scale molding; extruding; machining of rubber, composites and metals as well as metal welding and fabrication. Morse Marine Bearings are rubber lined and water lubricated. They require no seals, and no oil or grease for lubrication. The use of water as a lubricant provides efficient low friction operation and a stable lubricant film due to the incompressibility of water. A full standard range of Imperial and Metric sizes is available. Special sizes are available upon request. Morse Marine Bearings are precision molded and machined for consistently accurate dimensions and concentricity.
