LMI Custom Mixing was recently featured as a nimble, customer-focused, and forward-thinking company in an article by Rubber & Plastics News. The article discussed the effects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic on the custom mixing industry. Andrew Schunk outlined the challenges that custom rubber mixing companies have witnessed over the past 13 months, including “...volatile raw materials market, lengthy supplier lead times, and stingy labor climate…”

Schunk indicated that while large custom mixers weathered the storm through large budgets, diversified product lines, and bulk material discounts, smaller mixers had to be creative in their business approach. Fast turnaround times have helped numerous smaller mixers during the uncertainty of 2020, but LMI’s agility coupled with its personalized service, and ingenuity had a significant impact in the company’s success over the past year.

Technical capability is important in the custom mixing market, however, according to Schunk, “Value is paramount.” Value is created through innovation, service, and the capability to drive performance. Customers expect their mixing partners to deliver products of the utmost quality at the best possible prices. LMI Custom Mixing has built a reputation that focuses on providing state-of-the-art custom mixing capabilities in a value-centered company culture. They mix custom rubber compounds with intermeshing mixing lines to provide optimum dispersion for a variety of dense rubber compounds and sponge rubber compounds that meet identified market needs.

“We have always taken pride in reacting adeptly to customer needs,” said Jim Nixon, LMI General Manager. “2020 changed the industry, but our employees’ attention to detail and personal touch remained the same. Thank you to Rubber & Plastics News for recognizing our efforts.”
