About WABASH MPI
In 1941 a Wabash, Indiana high school science teacher wanted a hydraulic press in his lab so his students could learn about molding, laminating and materials. A friend who owned a small metal stamping shop built a press for him and the first WABASH Press was born.
The company began by specializing in hand operated laboratory presses, but today has evolved into a major domestic US manufacturer of many types of composite and hydraulic presses for rubber and plastics production as well as research. Included are vertical elastomer and vacuum molding machines for compression, transfer molding, laminating, die cutting and trimming.
