Garlock, leading manufacturer of high-performance fluid sealing products, has acquired the business and assets of Rubber Fab Gasket & Molding Inc. through its parent company EnPro Industries in a deal that brings together two world-class providers of sanitary gaskets, seals and hygienic fluid path solutions.
Rubber Fab, headquartered in Sparta, NJ, is a recognized supplier of high performance sanitary gaskets, hoses and fittings for hygienic process industries such as pharmaceutical, bio-processing and food & beverage.
The addition of Rubber Fab expands Garlock’s presence and scale in the hygienic market space and complements Garlock’s existing sealing solutions to provide a truly comprehensive portfolio.
The highlights of this acquisition:
- The combined portfolio is the widest range of high-end sealing solutions and process consumables for pharmaceutical and bio-processing applications
- Both companies exhibited at INTERPHEX 2016 and looking forward to a strong future together
“End-users, specification engineers and equipment manufacturers working across the pharmaceutical and bio-processing industry continue to demand more from their sealing and component suppliers,” Garlock Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development Brad Lodge said.
“By welcoming Rubber Fab into the Garlock Family of Companies, we can leverage the combined reach and experience of both companies, and ensure that we provide the largest portfolio of high performance sealing and fluid path solutions.
