On Friday, October 21, CRANE ChemPharma Flow Solutions celebrated the 75th anniversary of its Resistoflex brand. Distributors, end users and employees gathered at the company’s Marion, NC site to participate in the celebration that consisted of a dinner reception, a presentation by company executives, and an award ceremony, where Bill Hayes, Vice President of Marketing for CRANE ChemPharma, received an award as the longest-employed Resistoflex employee. The event also featured tours of the 320,000 sq/ft facility that walked visitors through the manufacturing areas of the various Resistoflex-branded products (including the PTFE Fittings, ISO Liner and Elbow manufacturing cells). Known for the invention of both the PTFE lined hose technology in 1953 for the aerospace and chemical industries, and the world’s first pipe and fittings lined with TEFLON PTFE in 1956, Resistoflex is the largest plastic-lined piping products supplier in the world. Headquartered in Marion, NC, the Resistoflex brand has manufacturing and sales locations in North America, Europe and Asia.
