King of Prussia, PA – Gallagher Fluid Seals, a distributor of sealing products, announced that it has acquired Johnson Packings and Industrial Products of East Longmeadow, MA, one of New England’s largest distribution and fabrication companies. Gallagher Fluid Seals was started outside of Philadelphia in 1956 by Walter Gallagher Sr. Celebrating its 58th year in business, Gallagher Fluid Seals continues to grow both organically and through acquisition. The addition of Johnson Packings to the Gallagher organization increases an already strong position within the New England market, as well as adding important Gasket Fabrication capabilities.
"We are incredibly pleased to welcome Johnson Packings and their 28 employees into the Gallagher organization," said Joe Gallagher, President and CEO of Gallagher Fluid Seals. "We look forward to working with the strong customer base, vendors, and employees of a company that has been as successful and in business as long as Johnson Packings. We feel that all of these factors, in addition to the new gasket fabrication capabilities, greatly enhances the position of Gallagher Fluid Seals in the marketplace."
