What Makes Us Different

Why Choose Vulcan

Vulcan offers the best price, quality and service available in the global market.

We are passionate about our products, our business, our standing in the marketplace and our customer relationships.

We are often asked what the difference is between our seals compared to other low-cost alternative producers, as sometimes the physical appearance is similar. The difference is not just in the product or how it looks. It encompasses every aspect of our business, from our equipment, machinery, systems and processes to the methodology, that produce and deliver the Vulcan product as a superior quality engineered commodity.

Large investments in all areas of our business, especially in manufacturing, stock holding and bespoke electronic system processing, differentiate Vulcan from the many seal copyists evident in today's market.

The key benefits felt by our customers are outlined on this page.
