Lamons Manufacturing and Service Company, a global provider in safety sealing and attachment solutions, is commemorating its 75th anniversary in 2022.
Founded in 1947 by W.A. Lamons, the company began providing quality gaskets to the oil, and gas and petrochemical industries. Today, the company is a global manufacturer of gaskets, fasteners, and hoses.
Over the years, Lamons acquired several companies, including the Richard Gasket Company in 1985 and Packing & Gasket Engineering (PAGE) in 1988. Lamons then purchased Industrial Bolt and Gasket in Beaumont, Texas in 1997. In 2010, it acquired South Texas Bolt and Fitting, which catapulted the company into being one of the most capable specialty fastener manufacturers in the world.
IsoTek was purchased in 2012 and added isolation gaskets, sleeves, and washers to the product portfolio. With the addition of hoses in 2016, Lamons fulfilled its vision of leading global markets in safety sealing and attachment solutions. In 2019, Lamons became part of the First Reserve family, a global private equity investment firm exclusively focused on energy.
“A pivotal point in our success came when we decided to create a one-stop experience for our customers,” added Kris Beezley, VP of Strategic Business Development. “Rather than only producing gaskets, we expanded our product offerings to include standard and specialty fasteners and hose assembly, which enabled us to provide total solutions for our customers.”
For technical support and services, Lamons provides an array of offerings: custom engineered solutions, reverse engineering solutions, specialty machined parts, prototype machining, training, and field support.
Throughout the past seven-and-a-half decades, the company has prided itself on continual improvement and innovation to better serve its customers and industries. A cornerstone in achieving this has been its philosophy of superior global customer support with branch offices in North America, Europe, and Asia that provide quality products with faster service and on-time delivery.
As the world transitions to clean energy and net-zero carbon emissions, Lamons is increasing its focus on supporting renewable industries such as wind, geothermal, alternative fuels, and others.
“We are extremely proud to reach this milestone — 75 years of innovation in safety sealing and attachment solutions,” said Marc A. Roberts, CEO of Lamons. “Creating a world-class engineering team, investing in long-standing relationships, and never losing sight of the possibilities that tomorrow would bring are the significant reasons we are standing here today.”
