AESSEAL®, a seal manufacturer, is celebrating its 40th anniversary, with a series of events and a promise to continue investing and innovating.
The Rotherham-based company which designs and makes mechanical seals and support systems for a wide range of global industries including oil and gas, food, water, mining and pharmaceuticals, has grown from a small distribution business based on Attercliffe Road, Sheffield to a £180m+ turnover business employing more than 1,800 people across the world.
Under founder and managing director Chris Rea, the company has recorded near constant growth over the four decades, investing in wide-ranging innovation including the development of its modular range of seals and processes that ensures customers receive the same product regardless of their location. In addition, the business has engaged in community work, apprenticeship programme and education outreach –which runs from primary schools right through to doctorate level.
The 40th-anniversary celebrations kicked off with a gala dinner at Sheffield City Hall on Monday, April 1st where staff and special guests gathered.
Each AESSEAL® branch across the world will also be organising and holding a regional event for its staff and local customers.
