ERIKS North America announced the opening of a new metal gasket and fastener fabrication shop at its 40,000-square-foot Chicago Service Center in Sauk Village, Illinois.

Located 30 miles south of Chicago, the facility features state-of-the-art equipment, as well as an experienced team of in-house fabricators and technical specialists, enabling ERIKS North America to better serve the refining, chemical, and other industries in the Midwest. The full-service gasket and fastener shop offers a range of spiral-wound gaskets; along with fabricated double jacketed, corrugated metal, and camprofile gaskets; as well as standard and custom fasteners; and specialty OEM cut parts.

“ERIKS North America has experienced tremendous growth in the refinery, chemical and other industries in recent years,” said Eric Rosenbrock, gasket product specialist. “Our products, processes and services have provided leak-free results in tens of thousands of applications around the world for more than 15 years. Our goal is to reduce customers’ total cost of ownership through longer service life, as well as reduced maintenance costs and fines for pipe-flange emissions.”
