Deublin Company has acquired Barco Seals of Cary, Illinois. Both companies manufacture Rotating Unions for the transmission of pressurized fluid into rotating machinery for a variety of equipment and process industries.
Founded in 1908, Barco developed swivels and ball joints for the railroad industry. Over the years, Barco developed and manufactured hundreds of rotating unions, plane and self-aligning swivel joints.
Deublin Company was founded in 1945. Deublin manufactures a broad range of precision components including rotating unions, steam joints and siphon systems, and electrical slip rings. Applications include machine tools, steel manufacturing, oil and gas exploration, paper and corrugating equipment, wind turbines, mining and more.
"The Barco acquisition brings together two great brands with similar applications, along with many new products and markets", explains Rob O'Brien, Vice President Sales and Marketing
