PALMYRA, N.Y. (Oct. 7, 2008) — Garlock Sealing Technologies has completed a plant that will produce Gylon industrial gasketing products.
The facility will meet global demand for its Gylon products with the potential for expansion and will consolidate all shipping and receiving activity for the company's Palmyra operations.
The new plant is the second major phase of a five-year, $30 million modernization program of Garlock's 100-year-old industrial complex. The first phase, a new building for Klozure dynamic oil seals, was completed in December 2006.
The Gylon facility boats new capital equipment to improve quality and efficiency, as well as environmentally friendly and energy efficient features.
