The article reports that Peter Snucins, president of Polycorp Ltd., negotiated with the Ministry of Water Resources for a grant to develop rubber impellers for a series of water pumps in China. Aside from solving the water flow problem, the country also planned to add 450 miles of subways because the government was looking for noise and insulation solution. Polycorp is also engaged with a marketing group to determine the potential of its rubber mill and protective linings in the Chinese market.
