Technical Support Services: A key ingredient of MetPro’s success is its industry leading research and development (R&D) unit. Headquartered in Tralee, Ireland, and supported by our Group experts in the South Africa office, and application engineers in Germany. The R&D unit includes a team of highly qualified and innovative engineers, chemists and scientists.
The development of our best in class technology is possible because of the advanced technical knowledge, proven track record, and innovative approach of our Group Chemists, scientists, and engineers collaborating to manufacture not only custom designed products but tailored solutions to the entire packaging and shipping processes of our customers. Our commitment is to invest in the evolution of existing products and the development of new ones as we understand the ever changing needs of our customers.
Our Commitment to R&D
Since the Company was founded, MetPro has sustained its commitment to Research and Development. Our highly qualified teams are on-hand to develop anti-corrosion preventative products tailored to specific customers’ needs anywhere in the world, and our Business Support Engineers are available to advise on packaging techniques and the correct application of products to ensure our customers are satisfied.
Our diverse range of testing materials and environments means that we can effectively and immediately recreate the actual and most extreme shipping and storage conditions, and the protection solution tested in advance of actual transportation. Our testing can be tailored to your specific requirements and we can even use the customers’ own metals or parts beings shipped. Corrosion testing is provided free of charge to customers and ensures seamless redesign of packaging systems with minimal impact on our customer’s production schedules.
Rapid and Innovative Redesign. Utilizing our state of the art laboratory twin screw extruder and our film line, MetPro’s innovative process from chemical manufacture to full scale manufacturing can handle all of the customers needs. From the development of chemical formulations in the laboratory, extrusion of formulations into a Masterbatch, extruding film, and corrosion testing to produce unique Vapour Corrosion Inhibitor Masterbatches, to the final step which is producing the modified product for the customer, MetPro can expedite the entire 5 stage process, all under one roof.
