STOCKHOLM, Sweden (July 12) — Trelleborg A.B. has acquired Portland, Ore.-based hydraulic seal and rubber component distributor AFM Inc. for an undisclosed sum.
AFM handles dynamic, static and rotary seals, employs about 45 and has an office in Fresno, Calif., Trelleborg said. It generates annual sales of about $12.8 million.
Most of AFM's products are sold to original equipment manufacturer customers in several industrial markets, including aerospace. Trelleborg said the firm will be integrated into Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, expanding that business segment's market presence to the U.S. Northwest and central California.
