RocCera, LLC is a manufacturer and fabricator of advanced ceramic, polyurethane and steel components based in Rochester, New York. RocCera’s advanced ceramic technology was developed in Kodak under the leadership of Dr. Sam Ghosh, who founded RocCera in 2006.
Our Founder and President: Dr. Sam Ghosh
Dr. Ghosh oversees technical, marketing, business growth, research and development as well as hands-on daily routine operations. He recently retired from Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester, NY, where he worked for twenty-five years in various organizations including R&D and manufacturing. He was the most prolific inventor in Kodak holding more than 150 patents. He has more than 30 years industrial experience involving metallic, polymeric, and ceramic materials.
Dr. Ghosh started advanced structural ceramic R&D program in Kodak which led to a successful structural ceramic manufacturing facility producing highly sophisticated products for Kodak's worldwide manufacturing operations. This innovative and unprecedented implementation of advanced ceramics in Kodak helped improve product quality, lower unit manufacturing cost (UMC), and reduces frequency of maintenance, greatly improved process reliability and improved overall cash flow rate of return. The ceramic program saved the company few hundred million dollars in manufacturing expenses over a span of few years.
Advanced ceramic technology helped Kodak improve photographic manufacturing processes around the world. Implementation of this technology greatly improved manufacturing productivity, enhanced product quality thereby reducing product rejection, and drastically reduced manufacturing cost. Since his retirement from Kodak, Dr. Ghosh has focused on developing the benefits of advanced ceramic technology for a wide range of applications.
RocCera designs, consults, manufactures and markets customized advanced ceramic components for industrial, commercial and domestic applications. Most of these products focus on providing the end user with specialized components to meet demands of higher wear and resistance to corrosion and oxidation leading to longer life (average ten to twenty times longer than steel), low maintenance and greater reliability.
Expansion and Growth
In 2008, RocCera moved its headquarters to The Rochester Technology Park to provide increased space for offices, manufacturing, research and development. The Rochester Technology Park is the premier Upstate New York 288 acre campus, consisting of 4,000,000 square feet of office, industrial, research, distribution and manufacturing space located within Rochester New York’s hot “Technology Corridor.”
Polyurethane and Steel
In 2010, RocCera acquired T.C. Service, a leading upstate New York provider of precision machining for polyurethane and steel components. Today, with the 35 years of machining experience and multi-material fabrication expertise, RocCera is truly your one stop source for precision manufacturing and machining of advanced ceramics, steel and polyurethane components.
