When it comes to developing a new seal or working to improve the performance of an existing one, Cooper Standard ISG (Industrial and Specialty Group) offers a unique combination of expertise to attain maximum durability and optimum performance that saves time and money.
Cooper Standard ISG often partners manufacturers to create start-to-finish sealing solutions that perform in the most demanding applications. Its FEA capabilities give Cooper Standard ISG an edge when designing seals based on compression, leak zones and other unique application requirements.
For example, long-term partner Sam Pardue – current Indow Window founder and CEO – contacted Cooper Standard ISG to discuss a solution for leaky windows in his classic 1906 Portland Craftsman house. Cooper Standard ISG helped create the now acclaimed Indow inserts, a big hit among thousands of homeowners around the country because of their airtight, highly efficient solutions, with no changes to their current window systems or architecture.
“Innovation can best happen when you have a partner that helps you bring your idea to fruition,” said Sam Pardue, CEO, Indow. “There is no doubt in my mind that Cooper Standard ISG has been an indispensable part of the Indow growth and success story. Without their expertise, we would not be where we are today.”
