UTEX, designs and manufactures sealing products for almost any type of service or application
Universal Packing and Gasket (UP&G) was founded on July 2, 1940. In the beginning, UP&G was a fabricator of gaskets and packings for the general industry and support of the war effort. In 1945, UP&G developed and obtained its first patent on a hinge type “Vee” packing. Since this initial patent, the Company has obtained over 35 patents on various sealing devices including reciprocating pump packings, molded rubber seals, molded mud pump piston rubbers, mechanical seals, pump gaskets, molding presses, and various sporting goods items. The Company changed its name in 1969 to Utex Industries, Inc. to reflect its broader capabilities. In 1986, Utex Industries decided to add mechanical seals to its product line. Utex Industries, Inc. made two acquisitions and started to develop its own proprietary mechanical seal line. Today, Utex Industries, Inc. stand alone in the ability to offer a complete line of proprietary mechanical seals and a complete line of replacement competitive mechanical seals. In addition, Utex manufactures its own metal bellows and offers complete mechanical seal repair for Utex seals and competitive seals through its X-TendaSeal® Services program in the United States and in several international countries. Utex Industries decided to become a global company in 1992 and launched a distributorship program. Today, Utex has distributors in over 50 countries. Please look at the international page or contact us for the distributor nearest you. In the 1990’s, Utex Industries made several strategic acquisitions. Utex acquired Applied Rubber Technology in 1994 to expand its rubber molding capabilities. Today, Utex is the largest rubber molder in the Southern United States. Utex and Applied Rubber have the ability to compression mold, transfer mold and injection mold rubber, rubber coated fabric, rubber and metal, and rubber and plastic parts up to 80” in diameter. Utex purchased AccuSeal in 1999 and moved the operation to Houston from its Denver location. AccuSeal manufactures a premium line of close tolerance machined polymer seals and component parts for general and extreme performance parameters. Utex stands alone in its ability to offer the complete range of sealing products and services. From its humble beginnings in 1940 as a gasket manufacturer and distributor of sealing products, Utex now manufactures a complete range of products that includes gaskets, gasket sheet products, proprietary high-tech ‘O’ rings, molded packings and seals for reciprocating pumps, hydraulics, mechanical seals, braided packings, maintenance products and custom rubber molded products. Think of Utex as a “one-stop-shop” for all of your sealing requirements and maintenance needs. In August 2005, in order to insure growth for its customers and employees, Utex was acquired by Financial Partner, Grey Mountain Partners. Utex will continue to operate under the Utex name, with the same quality product line, while seeking new avenues for future growth and product development and innovation.
