Arlon EMD, a division of Elite Materials Company (EMC), and an American manufacturer of specialty laminates is assuming the role of Master Distributor for EMC materials in N. America. Arlon has a 45-year history of manufacturing specialty materials for the Aerospace, Industrial and Military (AIM) markets.

This Master Distributor realignment will support the continued growth of EMC sales in N. America to meet customer demand of EMC products and provide shorter lead times. Arlon will assist with analytical and testing services on EMC laminates and prepregs. Arlon’s Q.A. testing capabilities, warehousing and manufacturing operation in Southern California will enable EMC to expand and centralize their logistical functions.

As the Master Distributor for EMC, Arlon will become the hub of importation for EMC laminates and prepregs. Arlon will use direct Arlon sales personnel, distributors, and agents to support fabricators’ requirements for EMC and Arlon specialty materials. As of June 1, 2022, fabrication customers may begin placing orders directly with Arlon or with one of Arlon’spartner distributors.

Elite Material Co. Ltd. (EMC) established in 1992 as a copper clad (CCL) and prepreg manufacturer, has become the global leader in the manufacture and supply of Halogen free CCL materials. Elite’s highly skilled Research & Development team has developed a family of materials from mid-loss to extreme low loss products.
