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

We think about


To be able to do this 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 and you should be able to rely on a good solution like you can rely on a good friend.

We are a

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 we focus on long-term relationships and think in solutions, but also occasionally challenge each other if we see opportunities for different possibilities or room for improvement.
