In the beginning
Flex-A-Seal, Inc. was started in December 1983 in Ormond Beach, Florida primarily as a welded metal bellows seal manufacturer dealing with a limited distributor base in the United States. After 25 years, Flex-A-Seal has two manufacturing facilities world wide, in addition, sales agents and distributors in over 30 countries.
- Essex Junction, Vermont with approximately 26,000 square feet and 60 employees
- Sao Paulo, Brazil with approximately 12,000 square feet and 40 employees
Consequently Flex-A-Seal, Inc. is a truly global corporation with as broad a product offering as any seal manufacturer and in fact, Flex-A-Seal, Inc. competes successfully day in and day out with the largest entities in our business.
With state of the art bellows welding capabilities, CNC machining centers, Q.C. controls and inventory systems, and seal repair capabilities regardless of their manufacturer, there is a core commitment at Flex-A-Seal, Inc. to be at the forefront of our industries’ technological capabilities even though our approach is one of a smaller, intimate business model. Our mission is to supply the highest quality products in partnership with our many distributors and agents world wide. We are committed to doing so with the ultimate end user always in mind. Adding value to our products in the form of courteous and prompt quotations and customer service, quick and dependable deliveries, product training, informative literature and marketing aids, engineering support, inventory reduction programs, MTBF tracking software, in-plant product surveys, etc. ensures that Flex-A-Seal, Inc. will not only supply you with the best products but also will help make sure they are applied properly and do the job they were designed to do.
In this global economy with the ever increasing pressure to lower prices, we are committed to keeping our customer's costs to a minimum without sacrificing our responsibilities to our employees world wide, or without compromising our commitment to produce, market, and sell our products in environmentally sound ways.
Too often as our competitors have grown, the people and businesses that were instrumental in their success are forgotten or cast to the side. The world wide “seal” landscape is littered with distributors and agents who have been replaced by a direct factory representative. Flex-A-Seal, Inc. prides itself on its solid commitment to our partners in the field, be they agents, distributors or resellers. Loyalty like that is hard to find in this cut throat environment.
We hope you will explore further all our capabilities here on our website.
