UP&R manufactures sophisticated polymer parts through its three core processes of molding, extrusion, and die-cutting. We supply a variety of markets spanning five continents including the automotive OE supply chain (as a Tier II/III supplier), the US Military, the consumer electronics market and more.
The following combine to set UP&R apart from its competition:
Continuous operation since 1971.
Multiple facilities with a total of 150,000 square feet of space.
Made in USA
Our domestic production in Northeast Ohio proudly contributes to a tradition of innovation and industry support services that began here over 100 years ago.
Successful development of a global sourcing program that has been active for 20+ years, including strong global logistics capabilities.
From Small to Large Volume
Working from prototype to production quantities is standard at UP&R as most tooling is made in house. Outsourced tools, when required, are made within 30 miles of our Ohio factories.
We are your one-stop shop for polymer parts, including secondary operations and logistics services.
We maintain 13 microwave and liquid cure extruders , 20+ injection and transfer molding presses, extensive die-cutting and converting machines, various injection and air splicing presses, and climate-controlled compound storage. UP&R is a member of The Cypress Companies of Akron, OH.
UP&R responsibly sources raw materials and actively recycles rubber when possible.
UP&R has acquired several competitors and actively seeks new consolidation opportunities; makes consistent, disciplined capital expenditures; expanded its US factories; and targets continuous improvement via Six Sigma, Kaizen, and the practice of 5S.
