Garlock Acquires Rubber Fab Technologies

May 13, 2016

Garlock, a 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.

Rubber Fab, headquartered in Sparta, New Jersey, is a recognized supplier of high performance sanitary gaskets, hoses and fittings for hygienic process industries such as pharmaceutical, bio-processing and food & beverage. Garlock says the addition of Rubber Fab expands its presence and scale in the hygienic market space and complements its existing sealing solutions to provide a comprehensive portfolio.

“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,” says Brad Lodge, Garlock's vice president of global sales and business development. “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.”
