“We endeavor to develop products that help move America forward.”
APG is a market leading manufacturer and distributor of fluid sealing and conveyance products supporting diverse end markets globally. From humble beginnings APG began as a small fabricating shop supplying soft gaskets primarily to customers in Southeast Texas in 1943. The outbreak of World War II presented a unique challenge and opportunity for the young business, while many of our early employees joined the war efforts, we had very few suppliers and thus began diversifying our product ranges in order to support a broader range of industries. In parallel, EVER-TITE™ patented the first cam and groove coupling in 1944 and gained early acceptance with the US military. As the war efforts developed the need for EVER-TITE™ couplings surpassed our ability to supply and at the request of the US government we relinquished our patent in order to allow other manufacturers to aid the military by supplying cam and groove couplings.
Following the war, the US economy flourished, and American Packing & Gasket continued to expand. During the mid-1950s we recognized a void between the needs of industrial distributors and manufacturers ability to quickly react to demand cycles. We spent the next several decades building lasting relationships with manufacturers and developed an enduring reputation as a trusted partner to industrial distributors around the world.
Today we remain committed to creating value for our customers. We’ve solidified distribution points across the globe to ensure our stock remains plentiful and available at a moment’s notice, we’ve invested in state-of-the-art machinery to increase the efficiency of custom fabricated items and we’ve created various internal processes to ensure a constant stream of new products are being introduced strategically throughout the year. We are recognized globally as an ISO9001:2015 registered company specializing in the manufacture and supply of quality sealing, coupling and related products. We are focused on innovation within our field and are committed to culture of customer centricity and employee development. We continue to honor our legacy but anxiously focus on our future and invite you to experience all that APG has to offer.
