Rogers Changes Business Segment Names


Reading time ( words)

Rogers Corporation today announced that its business segment formerly known as High Performance Foams is changing its name to Elastomeric Material Solutions (EMS) and its Printed Circuit Materials business segment will now be named Advanced Connectivity Solutions (ACS).

These changes have been made to better reflect a broader range of products and capabilities available to meet customer needs. The new names also take into account the January 2015 addition of Arlon, LLC, which brought new products and capabilities to each business segment, expanding their portfolios of engineered material solutions for Rogers’ growth markets.

Elastomeric Material Solutions

“Our new business name is the result of productive input and dialogue with customers and employees from around the world,” said John Quinn, Vice President, Elastomeric Material Solutions. “Elastomeric Material Solutions more clearly reflects who we have become through years of innovation and development, and where we expect to be in the future. More than just foams, we are a technology-based material solution provider.”

Elastomeric materials are, by definition, any resilient material composed of chainlike molecules, or polymers, that recover their original shape after being stretched.

EMS produces a variety of elastomeric products such as PORON® foams, BISCO® silicones, XRD® extreme impact protection materials, and the recently acquired ARLON® silicones. These solutions, along with a variety of other offerings, are designed into products and applications in segments where high reliability and performance are critical: industrial equipment, portable electronic devices, planes, trains, automobiles, protective gear, footwear, medical products and more.

Advanced Connectivity Solutions

The ACS name signals a strategic shift in how Rogers approaches its printed circuit materials segment by expanding its potential areas of business beyond existing material sets into new areas of RF/microwave and digital connectivity.

“Looking at our product innovation and technical support strengths in the microwave and digital communication industries, you can see how our business unit name could start to box us in from reaching our full potential,” said Jeff Grudzien, Vice President, Advanced Connectivity Solutions. “Although the name ‘Printed Circuit Materials’ served us very well to get us to this point, it was time to change the name to one that helps us pave the way for future growth and expansion.”

ACS offers flexible circuit materials and high performance PCB laminates to customers around the globe. With the addition of Arlon, ACS expanded its portfolio to include thermally conductive substrates for heat dissipation in mobile internet devices and consumer appliances. Its products are used in a wide range of additional markets, including portable communications, automotive radar systems, communications infrastructure and aerospace and defense.

It’s always great to see two very good companies form a mutually beneficial alliance. I was lucky enough to watch this particular strategic partnership come to fruition this year between RBP Chemical and Schlötter. I wanted to talk to both companies, so I sat down with Matthias Hampel, global executive representative-PCB and electronics at Schlötter, and Ernest Litynski, president of RBP Chemical Technology, to get the inside story.
