Expanding Build-to-Order Range

With the continuing expansion of our Build-to-Order range, first4seals is in the process of increasing our storage capacity by 50%. This enables us to plan for even more product developments in the future whilst providing the best lead times possible to our clients.

Water efficiency

With the threat of hosepipe bans looming in the continuing heatwave, the focus on water efficiency is increasing. For improved reliability and reduced water wastage, our range of mechanical seals covers the majority of applications in the water industry. #waterefficiency #reliability #waterindustry

Long service award

Lal Mistry was recently presented with his long-service award for 30 years’ service to the business.  He has been an integral part of our workshop during that time and the place wouldn’t be the same without him.  Congratulations on a fantastic achievement Lal, that’s some serious dedication!

Merry Christmas from all at first4seals!

Latest Addition – Parallel Spring Seals

We’re proud to show our first build-to-order parallel single spring seals. The latest addition to our in-house production range, these can be assembled in minutes, improving both turnaround and delivery to the customer.

Build-to-order Component Seals

In order for first4seals to compete in a competitive market we must continually look at doing things better, faster and more cost effectively. These are some of the reasons why in 2016 we began to implement build-to-order Component Seal product ranges. Last Summer we launched the first of the build-to-order ranges: our Bellows Range. Since then, we have added Tapered Spring and most recently Parallel Spring seals. All of this means a speedy turnaround and even better service to our customers.
