YORKSHIRE, England (Feb. 4, 2009)—A British-based division of EnPro Industries Inc. has acquired PTM (UK) Ltd, a Stockport, England-based rubber molding and gasket fabricating company.
Garlock (Great Britain) Ltd. of Elland, England, said the deal strengthens its position in the market. Garlock—which makes gaskets, compression packing, oil seals, bearing isolators, expansion joints, mechanical seals, hydraulic seals and custom-molded rubber components—in December purchased Northern Gaskets and Moldings Ltd., based in Leeds, England.
PTM distributes Garlock products, employs 40 in Stockport and Wrexham, England, and produces custom seals for the chemical, pharmaceutical and original equipment manufacturer markets.
The financial details of the purchase weren't disclosed.
