Founded in 1949 by a chemist working on advanced composite materials during World War II at the U.S. Wright-Patterson Air Force base, Polygon Company has grown into an engineered materials company with multiple manufacturing facilities and global distribution and sales offices around the world. Polygon's original patents on composite self-lubricating bearings in the mid 1960's stand as a hallmark in the development of journal bearing technology. Since that time, Polygon's ongoing research and development activities have resulted in multiple patents on innovative self-lubricating products as well as proprietary manufacturing capabilities that allow Polygon to project superior value in the journal bearing marketplace.
Corporate research and development activities, including an in-house bearing test laboratory, are located in the company's corporate offices and primary manufacturing location in Walkerton, Indiana (approximately 90 miles east of Chicago, Illinois).
Polygon's corporate structure is centered around five product manufacturing divisions:
PolyLube™ self-lubricating composite bearings
PolyMed™ medical composites for minimally invasive surgeries
The Polygon Tube™ double insulation for hand-held, corded power tools
PolySlide™ Electrical Distribution and Control (Transmission and Distribution) composite insulators
