General Packing was born in 1965, as Garlock Sealing Technologies exclusive agent for the Italian market, soon becoming the biggest distributor in Europe.
Throughout the years, the continuous partnership with Garlock and the constant investments in specialized human resources have contributed to the development of General Packing’s EUROSEAL line; a far-sighted choice that has made the company famous worldwide as an absolute reference-point in pure mineral graphite applications for industrial seals: sheets, packings, spiral-wound, metal-jacketed and engineered gaskets.
Today General Packing Italy is one of the most important and reliable manufacturers, with three state-of-the-art plants: Carugate and Priolo in Italy, and Shanghai in China. In our premises the EUROSEAL range is produced in complete cycle: from the raw materials (graphite, ptfe, stainless steel) to the finished products.
Already in its second generation management, skilled and experienced to respond to the most challenging requests of end-users and engineering companies, General Packing is present both directly and through its authorized distributors in Europe, Africa, Middle and Far-East, as well as the Americas.
General Packing Italy boasts fully owned production plants, where the complete cycle of the EUROSEAL product range in pure expanded mineral graphite is manufactured: from the cleansing and expansion of the mineral graphite powder, to the finished engineered gaskets and braided packings, reinforced by all the available types of stainless steels, which are cut and worked totally in-house.
The "white" workshop is now also operating, where PTFE-based sealing products are manufactured.
In the recent plant expansions, all the product lines based on metallic gaskets have been enhanced; now also spiral-wound and metal-jacketed gaskets are skilfully made to any kind, size and shape requested by customers.
In total, over 20.000 square meters, with workshops, technical departments, test laboratories, warehouses, cafeterias and relax areas for the employees. Two manufacturing plants in Italy (Carugate and Priolo), as well as a fully-owned one in the heart of the ultra-modern Shanghai. The Italian plants are certified by the DNV, while the Shanghai site has the prestigious API certification: American Petroleum Institute.
The fully furbished warehouses offer the whole production range in ready delivery, to face even non-standard requests from customers worldwide.
Our Technical Assistants, highly-skilled sealing specialists, are constantly on the move visiting end-users and assisting them with after sales service, from Europe to Africa to the Middle and Far East and the Americas, always bringing the latest technology and updates available in the gasketing world.
General Packing Italy’s head office in Carugate is often the meeting point for rendez-vouz and visiting by the most varied delegations, and is always at the disposal of Italian and foreign collaborators, thanks to its multi-lingual staff ready for any need.
Our manufacturing plants, recently enhanced and expanded, use the latest machines designed by our engineers to perfectly suit the sealing products that must be generated. All the Euroseal line of gasketing sheets, cut gaskets, spiral and metal-jacketed gaskets, gland packings and ptfe-based seals, are fully produced in-house by our specialists, and supervised by our engineering and quality department. This makes it possible to fullfil and assist any request and project from any gasket end-user.
