The UK-based group, which owns AESSEAL, the world’s largest homogeneous designer and manufacturer of mechanical seals, will make the entire product and service portfolio of both AESSEAL and AES Sealing products available to serve the Japanese sealing market to the highest global standards.

Kotaro Harada, president of Torishima, said AESSEAL’s product technology and dedication to customer service and reliability made the decision to invest and join forces an easy one, adding: “This coming together will immediately improve AESSEAL’s Japanese market coverage, will open up new opportunities in other markets across Japan and meets the request of AESSEAL’s global customers to increase their presence in Japan.”

Chris Rea, managing director of AES Engineering Ltd, said: “We have an ambition to be the world’s leading reliability business and we cannot do that without a strong presence in Japan, which is the third largest country by GDP.

"Torishima is a long established and well-respected company with a great reputation and heritage, and there is also a business culture fit.

"Together we will bring a new and disruptive level of customer service on all AESSEAL group sealing products to a large underserved market.”

The new company was formed and began operations on Tuesday.

AESSEAL, which was founded in 1979, now operates from 231 locations in 104 countries, and holds, in addition to its engineered product portfolio, the world’s most comprehensive standard inventory portfolio of mechanical seals, bearing protectors, seal support systems, and packing.
