Vesconite hired the Martin Flory Group as part of an effort to expand its North American presence.

The South African company makes advanced polymers for bushing, bearing and plate applications.

Since 1953, it has developed self-lubricating materials that provide high dimensional stability with no moisture swell, low friction and wear, and long life. Vesconite offers materials as stock shapes or parts machined with tolerances.

The company ships domestically from its warehouse in San Antonio, Texas.

"We're excited to be working with Vesconite," Martin Flory Group president Laura Martin said in a statement. "They have a solid, established line of products with enormous potential for growth within the U.S. and Canadian marine, industrial and agricultural markets."
