Our process

Our converting processes

 

We are aware that each of our customers has unique and personal production processes. Therefore, a standard product "universal" would oppose our business philosophy: to respond precisely to the slightest requirement of our customers by offering them a product perfectly adapted to their process.

 

Therefore, we can reduce your converting costs, enhance yield and improve your process efficiency.  We will get you what you need from slit rolls of tape, custom die cuts, special labels, or sheeted Nomex.

 

At ADDEV Materials Converting, we have been serving converting needs for over 25 years, and aim to provide the same convenient, quality service that has made us a leader in the converting industry.

 

 

We can provide design and manufacturing services to power generation, building, automotive, medical device and other markets as well.

Virtually any type of material supplied in a roll format can be converted within our facility. Regardless of your need - slitting, sheeting, spooling, die cutting, printing, light assembly, product development or supply chain enhancement - we are poised to respond to the demands of a broad spectrum of markets with the right material, the best converting and the perfect solution.

We also offer contract manufacturing on our main process.
