About Xerium Technologies Inc.
Xerium Technologies, Inc. engages in the manufacture and supply of consumable products that are used primarily in the production of paperclothing and roll covers. The company markets its products through various brands that include Huyck Wangner, Weavexx, Stowe Woodward, Mount Hope, Robec, and Xibe.
The company operates through two principal business segments, Clothing and Roll Covers.
The Clothing segment products are engineered synthetic textile belts that transport paper as it is processed on a paper-making machine from paper stock into finished paper. Clothing generally ranges in size from approximately 3 feet to approximately 30 feet wide and 24 feet to approximately 460 feet long and operates on paper-making machines that run at speeds up to 7,500 feet per minute.
The company manufactures three general types of clothing products used on paper-making machinesforming fabrics, press felts and dryer fabricseach of which is located in a different section of a machine.
Forming fabrics: Forming fabrics are used at the beginning of paper-making machines, where diluted paper stock is deposited on the forming fabric while the fabric is traveling at a very high speed. Forming fabrics allow water to drain from the paper stock, creating an initial wet sheet. Forming fabrics are custom-manufactured in single, double, and triple layer designs in various meshes to suit particular machines and paper grades.
Press felts: Press felts are used to carry the paper sheet through a series of press rolls that mechanically press water from the sheet under high pressure. Press felts differ from forming fabrics and dryer fabrics due to the addition of layers of staple fiber that are needled into the fabric base. Press felts are manufactured in various designs, including single layer felts, multi-layer laminated endless felts, and seamed felts that allow for reduced installation times.
Dryer fabrics: Dryer fabrics are used to transport the paper sheet through the drying section of paper-making machines, where high temperatures from large, steam-heated dryer cylinders evaporate the remaining moisture from the paper sheet. Dryer fabrics are woven from heat-resistant yarns with a coarser mesh than forming fabrics.
Industrials and Other: The company also manufactures other types of clothing used in other industrial applications, such as steel, plastics, leather, and textiles manufacturing. It also manufactures auto-joining equipment used on paper-making machines.
Roll Covers Products and Services
Through its Roll Covers segment, the company manufactures various types of roll covers, refurbish previously installed roll covers, provide mechanical services for the internal mechanisms of rolls used on paper-making machines and manufacture spreader rolls.
Roll covers: The company manufactures, refurbishes, and replaces covers for three kinds of rolls on paper-making machines: working rolls (including vacuum rolls and press rolls), calendar rolls and coater rolls. There can be up to 200 such rolls in a typical paper-making machine. These metal rolls, which can be up to 39 feet long, 6 feet in diameter and weigh 500 to 140,000 pounds, are covered with an exterior layer of rubber, polyurethane, composite or ceramic, each of which is designed for use in a particular phase of the paper-making process. Roll covers operate in temperatures up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, under pressures up to 1,400 pounds per square inch and at speeds approximately 7,500 feet per minute.
Roll Cover Refurbishment Services and Mechanical Services: Roll covers are typically refurbished various times over the two to five years they are in service before needing to be replaced. Refurbishment typically includes the regrinding of the roll cover to standard specifications and inspecting the bearings and other mechanical components of the roll. As with roll cover replacement, refurbishment is performed at the suppliers manufacturing facility. The company offers a range of mechanical maintenance and repair services for the internal mechanisms of rolls. As of December 31, 2009, the company provided mechanical services at 10 locations worldwide.
Spreader rolls. The company manufactures and repairs spreader rolls, which are small-diameter curved rolls used throughout a paper-making machine to stretch, smooth, and remove wrinkles from the paper and clothing.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
