The main challenge faced by Mid Mountain’s customers is how to realize enhanced process performance and achieve a higher return on their investment. Mid-Mountain Materials, Inc. is dedicated to continuously develop and improve its processes and thermal insulation products to help the customers overcome these difficulties
Vertical Integration at Mid Mountain
Vertical integration is the ability to carry out multiple stages of production, which is often outsourced to different companies. Several of Mid Mountain’s thermal insulation products benefit from the company’s vertical integration, for instance, the THERMOPAK® Tadpole Gasket.
The components of a tadpole gasket include a cover material and core material, and both of these can be manufactured by Mid-Mountain. Based on the application, Mid-Mountain’s THERMOPAK® Tadpole Gaskets can have a range of core and cover materials, for example, a core can consist of a silicone coated fabric cover and a fiberglass rope.
Mid Mountain believes that its vertical integration offers its customers with an additional level of customer service. The company supplies thermal insulation products that have a high level of quality. Mid Mountain has four different manufacturing divisions – textiles formation, coated fabrics, fabricated components, and refractory moldables. Usually, the products from each division can be used to develop a single product, like those mentioned above.
The diverse product line allows Mid Mountain to meet the requirements of its clients who have a variety of thermal insulation applications.
Industries that benefit from Mid Mountain’s vertical integration include automotive, aerospace, insulation, welding, and power generation. By using its own products as the raw material, Mid-Mountain is at a great advantage over its competitors, as vertical integration not only saves time but also offers substantial cost benefits to customers.
Vertical Integration Case Study
In partnership with the U.S Department of Energy, Batelle Engineers NW, and GeoSafe, Mid-Mountain Materials, Inc. developed a Geodesic Dome Tent that was used for containing emissions and retaining heat during in situ-vitrification of the ground to eliminate any hazardous waste. Mid-Mountain’s ARMATEX® Coated Fabrics were used to produce this tent, which, in turn, was assembled by the company’s fabrication team.
Another excellent example of vertical integration at Mid-Mountain is the THERMOPAK® External Cathode Bar Seals. These thermal resistant materials are comprised of four different Mid-Mountain products – the THERMOSEAL® Moldable, a HYTEX® Kevlar cord, and two ARMATEX® Coated Fabrics.
