About Lagersmit

“TO DELIVER PEACE OF MIND WITH THE BEST SEALING SOLUTIONS FOR PUMPS, SHIPS AND TIDAL TURBINES.”

Who we are

The world of seals is our world. To supply the best seals, we always think in terms of solutions: every step is a step in the right direction. In the way we work together with our customers, you could call us a good friend. The focus is on collective benefit, but we are certainly no yes-men! If we believe things can be done better, we are not afraid to say so.

Core values

Expertise

Our expertise is our basis. The world of sealing is our world. We are driven by only one thing: delivering the best sealing solutions for pumps, ships and tidal turbines.

Solutions

To be able to do so it is essential that every step we take is a step forward. We think in solutions for every application and situation. Ships must sail, pumps must run. One should be able to rely on a good solution like one can rely on a good friend.

Good friend

In our relationships with our clients and stakeholders the joint profit takes the highest priority, but we are not yes-men. Consider us a ‘good friend’. This means that we focus on long term relationships, think in solutions, but also occasionally confront each other if we see chances for different solutions or room for improvement.

Better

And we believe things can always improve. That is why we continuously feed our innovation engine with ideas to be able to keep providing the best solutions for our clients and stakeholders. Now and in the future.
