Oct 17, 2016 By Tiffany Oliphant

RIPLEY, MS-- 30-year rubber veteran, and owner of Elite Elastomers, Steve Glidewell,

started out as a custom mixer but realized Elite’s asset is technical, not physical.

For the last six years, he developed a process to get their end application stakeholder an

optimal solution quicker. The Mississippi based mixer is currently transitioning its

business model to be an applicative compounder, which focuses on the end application then

works backward to concept.
