Established in 1965, Associated Gaskets was founded by Cedric Waters and throughout the resulting years has remained a wholly Australian, privately owned company. Now most often known as AG, we work with all kinds of industries in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific to provide quality industrial products, precise fabrication and exemplary service.
From humble beginnings in a small factory in Annandale in Western Sydney, AG later moved to slightly larger premises in Leichhardt and then our current head office location in Revesby, Sydney (NSW). As we grew, we also sought ways to increase the level of service we could provide our customers which led us to establish branches in Newcastle (NSW), Melbourne (VIC), Brisbane (QLD), Wollongong (NSW) and, finally, Perth (WA).
All branches remain operating today and are staffed by experienced sales personnel dedicated to providing service to customers in their region. We also utilise our nationwide network of branches to maintain local stock in each of the locations, significantly reducing delivery times and allowing for quick delivery of urgent items.
Though originally established to manufacture gaskets, overtime our product range has expanded and developed through constant consultation with our customers. Today, AG offers one of Australia’s most diverse and comprehensive ranges of packings, seals, electrical insulation, industrial tapes, safety products, thermal insulation, silicones, adhesive, lubricants and acoustic insulation. We will continue to expand and develop this range so that we can continue our tradition of meeting customers’ requirements.
As AG has grown, so to have our fabrication capabilities. We now offer fully fabricated solutions for all manner of gasketing, thermal and electrical insulation applications and continue to expand this offering as our range of materials grows. We have invested in numerous pieces of equipment to continually develop and modernise our fabrication capabilities and are proud to offer extensive knife-cutting, water-cutting, milling, sewing, slitting, pressing, moulding, extruding and machining capabilities with more on the way.
As a company which began with just 3 employees all the way back in 1965, AG is proud to now have a team that numbers greater than 60. We take special pride in the fact that many of our employees have been with us for an extended period of time and hope that we can continue to use the benefit of their experience, knowledge and commitment to service to continue to serve customers for many years to come.
