Trelleborg Sealing Solutions acquires Anderson Seal

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has finalized the acquisition of Anderson Seal LLC, a privately owned seal distributor.

“Anderson Seal’s dynamic company culture and vision complements that of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, as well as supports its Total Value of Ownership (TVO) approach and advanced delivery program. The company’s expertise in complex assembly and best practices in kitting will continue to deliver the kind of value our customers have come to expect,” said Linda Muroski, president of Marketing Americas.

The company says the acquisition supports the growth strategy of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions and further expands the delivery and service of seals, gaskets and custom-molded products for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in industries such as automotive, hydraulic, and medical/life sciences. The acquisition will significantly increase the presence for Trelleborg in the Midwestern United States and accelerate its advanced delivery services.

Anderson Seal has an office and warehouse in New Berlin, Wisconsin, and had sales of approximately $17 million in 2015. This bolt-on acquisition is part of Trelleborg’s strategy to strengthen its positions in attractive market segments.

Jennifer Hansen, president of Anderson Seal, said, “We are thrilled to be able to continue to provide exceptional services to our customers in the same manner as we have been doing over the last decade but now with the advantage and backing of a global leader.”
