Primalec: Airco Seal Pro now made in the UK

Published:  21 August, 2019

Primalec has announced its refrigerant sealants range is now being produced in the UK. The on-shoring process for Airco Seal Pro, the micro leak repair system for air conditioning refrigerants, is now complete. The company says this will  lead to a shorter and more reliable supply chain.

Airco Seal Pro was developed in Texas by a family owned business, with which Primalec had a close personal relationship for many years. That relationship did continue after the family business was sold ten years ago but has since changed ownership several times. “That makes partnerships harder to sustain,” according to Primalec Director Richard Doran.

“Partnerships with suppliers and customers is key to Primalec’s business philosophy,” he said. “Our association with our former partners across the Atlantic dates back to when our business was founded in 1979. That has given us an unrivalled knowledge and understanding of this highly specialist product category, and why the market needs it.

“In the end bringing production in house was a no-brainer. Seal Pro is exactly the same product as before – the same unique ingredients and the same vacuum canister, same hose and same packaging specifications as before, but it is now made in the UK.”

Richard added: “Branding has been updated and, as it will be supplied direct from the manufacturer to the wholesaler, it will lead to greater security of supply and pricing in post-Brexit Britain. This is one of a series of new initiatives and products in the coming months that will help Primalec provide an even better service to our customers in the automotive aftermarket.”
