23 May 2018
Rogers Corporation, incorporated on July 29, 1927, designs, develops, manufactures and sells engineered materials and components for mission critical applications. The Company's segments are Advanced Connectivity Solutions (ACS), Elastomeric Material Solutions (EMS), Power Electronics Solutions (PES) and Other.
Advanced Connectivity Solutions
The ACS segment designs, develops, manufactures and sells circuit materials and solutions for applications in wireless communications infrastructure (power amplifiers, antennas, small cells and distributed antenna systems), automotive (active safety, advanced driver assistance systems, telematics and thermal management), connected devices, (mobile Internet devices and Internet of Things), wired infrastructure (computing, servers and storage), consumer electronics and aerospace/defense. These products are sold principally to printed circuit board fabricators that convert its laminates to custom printed circuits. The Company sells circuit materials under various trade names, including RO3000, RO4000, RT/duroid, AD Series and CLTE Series. Its ACS segment has manufacturing and administrative facilities in Chandler, Arizona; Rogers, Connecticut; Bear, Delaware; Evergem, Belgium, and Suzhou, China.
Elastomeric Material Solutions
The EMS segment designs, develops, manufactures and sells elastomeric material solutions for critical cushioning, sealing, impact protection and vibration management applications, including general industrial, portable electronics (mobile Internet devices), consumer goods (protective sports equipment), automotive, mass transportation, construction and printing applications. Its EMS products are sold globally to converters, fabricators, distributors and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for use in general industrial applications, portable electronics, including mobile Internet devices, consumer goods, mass transportation, construction, printing applications and other markets.
The Company sells elastomeric materials under various trade names, including DeWAL, ARLON, PORON, XRD, BISCO and eSORBA. The Company also owns Rogers Inoac Corporation (RIC), a joint venture established in Japan to design, develop, manufacture and sell PORON products for the Japanese market and Rogers INOAC Suzhou Corporation (RIS), a joint venture established in China to design, develop, manufacture and sell PORON products primarily for RIC customers in various Asian countries. Its EMS segment has manufacturing and administrative facilities in Woodstock, Connecticut; Rogers, Connecticut; Bear, Delaware; Carol Stream, Illinois; Narragansett, Rhode Island; Santa Fe Springs, California; Suzhou, China, and Ansan, Korea.
Power Electronics Solutions
The PES segment designs, develops, manufactures and sells ceramic substrate materials for power module applications (variable frequency drives, vehicle electrification and renewable energy), laminated bus bars for power inverter and interconnect applications (mass transit, hybrid-electric and electric vehicles, renewable energy and variable frequency drives), and micro-channel coolers (laser cutting equipment). The Company sells ceramic substrate materials and micro channel coolers under the curamik trade name, and its bus bars under the ROLINX trade name. Its curamik ceramic substrates are used in the design of intelligent power management devices, such as insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) modules, which enable a range of products, including industrial motor drives, wind and solar converters and electric and hybrid electric vehicle drive systems. The PES segment has manufacturing and administrative facilities in Ghent, Belgium; Eschenbach, Germany; Budapest, Hungary, and Suzhou, China.
The Company's other businesses consist of elastomeric components for applications in ground transportation, office equipment, consumer and other markets; elastomeric floats for level sensing in fuel tanks, motors, and storage tanks; and inverters for portable communications and automotive markets. Its trade names for elastomer components include NITROPHYL and ENDUR.
