The article reports that Ames Rubber Corp. is making efforts to emphasize its expertise in polymer technologies and problem solving. The company, which relies heavily on its unique rubber formulations, does a lot more now than it could just 10 years ago when its traditional markets were rubber rollers, business machine and automotive parts. The firm also diversified into the production of aerospace, bio-pharmaceutical, military, fuel cell, water treatment and other products.
