There has been a great shift in manufacturing since 1960 – the year Kent Elastomer Products first began to operate under the name Kent Latex Products. Since that time, many American plants have closed or moved operations offshore. Not KEP.  We have stayed, thrived, and adapted to changing times because we’ve never settled on status quo. Over the years, KEP built and retained our strong, family-oriented culture. Our people have that great American spirit and are the driving factor for our success as a company. Over 60 years we have grown through acquisition, added new innovative product lines and capabilities which have allowed us to grow alongside our customers. Our customers tell us that there are many great benefits of partnering with KEP.  Some of those benefits are the high quality products and unique solutions we provide.

One such innovation was a cost-effective way to seal tube ends on packaging to keep the product from leaking. This solution was for a client who sold sold liquid bag-in-box and pouch packaging made with tubes that required capping.

KEP offered a solution that simplified the process, reduced parts, and even lowered costs. See our Crimped Tubing Case Study – which is just one of countless stories that explain our 60-year success.
