Xccent Medical And Industrial Relocates Headquarters To Sanilac County, Michigan

Midwest Rubber Company, a manufacturer of rubber and plastic products acquired Xccent Medical and Industrial Division, a Minnesota-based manufacturer of rubber and flexible products for the medical and industrial industry, and will transfer its M&I’s operation to Midwest Rubber’s headquarters in Sanilac County, Michigan.

According to company officials, “The acquisition will allow Xccent to continue to focus on their core business of fitness and playground equipment. This move complements Midwest Rubber’s portfolio of business by expanding its reach in the medical and industrial sector."

“This planned acquisition will further establish Midwest Rubber Company as a premier leader in the rubber and flexible products industry, and one of America’s few remaining latex dip molders. It will also bring ten new jobs to Michigan,” says Kenneth Jehle, president of Midwest Rubber Company.

“This is great news for our customers, as Midwest Rubber offers additional process capabilities outside of vinyl and latex dip molding such as rotational molding and urethane foam molding, and unique engineering and problem-solving expertise,” says John Mathiesen, President of Xccent, Inc. “We have carefully selected the best suitor, Midwest Rubber, to carry on the legacy and reputation we have built over 40 years.”
