Why Choose Us

Even in heavy machinery, it’s the little things that count. And unless you’re involved in the manufacturing industry, you’ve maybe never thought twice about seals and gaskets. But since 1983, we’ve been thinking long and hard about these indispensable components that keep the world’s machines running. So where can you find our parts? They’re used in agriculture, waste treatment plants, food and beverage production including brewery and distillery, the pharmaceutical industry, water treatment, energy production… the list goes on.

We’re a second generation family-run business based in Dublin and Cork, and over the last four decades, we’ve been Ireland’s leading provider of seals and gaskets. Whether it’s factory machinery, engines, pharmaceutical equipment, heavy construction or any other industry you can think of, our parts have worked in millions of applications, sealing machine joints all over Ireland and further afield. We like to keep things friction-free!

We’re a company built on innovation, and our years of investment and training is passed directly to you and the smooth running of your systems. Your success is our success, so we’ll always put your needs first. We have a huge range of gaskets, o-rings and seals in stock in our Cork and Dublin warehouses, and if we don’t have exactly what you need in stock, we can simply make it for you.

Since 2011, our Cork manufacturing facility has been a hub of innovation, with two state-of-the-art CAD knife-cutting tables for creating custom gaskets with extreme precision and efficiency. In 2015, we started manufacturing seals using next frontier CNC Lathes — the only Irish company using this process. And we’re still the only company in Ireland that manufactures both seals and gaskets.

You’ve probably guessed by now that we like things running smoothly, but we’re big on things running quickly as well. If you need a specific part, we can create it through our in-house manufacturing service, Abbey Seals Xpress.

We call it Xpress for two reasons — we guarantee a quick turnaround on manufacturing, and if you place an order before 4pm we’ll ship your product that same day, to anywhere in the world. These little things really do make a difference.
