The combined company, which will continue to operate under the Elemica name, will continue to provide “supply chain efficiencies and cost savings for global manufacturers.”
Elemica primarily provides supply chain integration and execution to the chemical industry. RubberNetwork, founded in 2000, provides sourcing and supply chain integration for the global tire and rubber industry.
RubberNetwork clients include Continental, Cooper, Goodyear, Hankook, Kumho, Michelin, Pirelli, Sumitomo, Toyo and Yokohama.
"The products of both Elemica and RubberNetwork are similar but not overlapping, we provide outstanding supply chain services to our blue chip clients, and we complement each other in the industries in which we operate," said Mike McGuigan, president and CEO of Elemica. "This merger creates exceptional opportunities for our current clients and new manufacturing customers globally to drive greater efficiencies in their businesses.” (Tire Review/Akron)
