We know that many of them use both engineered, made-to-order seals and gaskets, as well as off-the-shelf bulk packing, and EGC can now be that single source. Just as EGC is a respected name in the fluid sealing market, Slade is also well known for their high-quality graphite packing. We are excited to have them join EGC.” states Hugh Slater, CEO of EGC Enterprises.
