Flex-A-Seal Expands Repair Capabilities with New Southern U.S. Facility

Following the recent acquisition of H&S Sealing in Shreveport, La., Flex-A-Seal has further expanded our service capabilities through the opening of a new, larger facility located in Gonzales, La.

Our new location is less than 10 minutes from the key manufacturing plants in the Gonzales/Geismar area, giving us the ability to provide clients the support they need quickly. Our brand new, 5,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility has space to triple our size as needed to better serve our expanding customer base.

Flex-A-Seal’s Gulf South location is a fully functional, self-sufficient seal repair shop for all brands of seals, as well as a regional stocking center to supply immediate service to the South and Gulf South region serving the distribution and end user markets.

The full machine shop and in-house seal repair capabilities allow the Gonzales team to immediately respond to urgent needs. Our new southern facility and team allow us to provide our customers with proven reliability improvements, inventory reduction/standardization, and cost containment programs.
