2011 - 100-year anniversary of the Clark-Cutler-McDermott Company
Our partner and manufacturer of vibration isolation pads, Clark-Cutler-McDermott, celebrated its 100-year anniversary on July 20, 2011. For the last 100 years, the company has specialised in sound insulation and interior trims, as well as the manufacture of non-woven textile products for the automotive industry.
1960 - AirLoc Schrepfer expands its international distribution
Establishment of representative offices in Europe and later worldwide. Concentration on AirLoc isolation pads and isolation sets for vibration damping. Development of Jacmount® adjustable levellers and wedge mounts. All components are manufactured externally.
1958 - First contact with Clark-Cutler-McDermott Company
First contact with our current partner, Clark-Cutler-McDermott, Franklin USA for development of high-adhesive isolation pads allowing the free installation of textile machines (anchoring was no longer required). This material replaced the previously required felt underlay. First small success with machine manufacturer Rüti on textile machines, and later also on machine tools.
1954 - Start of the collaboration between Roland McDermott and Rudolf Schrepfer
Kaspar Laager met Roland McDermott at the American Textile Machine Expo in Greenville, South Carolina and saw the AirLoc Products for the first time. Back in Switzerland, he informed Rudolph Schrepfer of what he had seen in the USA. Schrepfer then met Roland McDermott at the first ITMA (International Textile Machinery Association) Show in Brussels in the autumn of 1954, where the relationship between AirLoc and the Schrepfer company began.
1911 - Founding of CCMcD, the later partner company
On July 20, 1911, the company "Clark-Cutler-McDermott" was established by its three founders, Thomas S. McDermott, Walter Clark and William Cutler in Franklin Massachusetts. Initially they produced horse blankets and later other textile products. Their experience in this field later led to the development of the AirLoc vibration isolation pads and thus to the collaboration with AirLoc Schrepfer AG.
