More Than A Seal. A Bond.

Our seals help make those the best working products in the world. The fastest moving, the deepest diving, the longest lasting, the farthest driving, the most winning and the most dependable.

Company

Founded more than 60 years ago, Darcoid is a small privately held company with a global footprint. Our core focus is on seal products and building and maintaining efficient seal supply programs supporting OEM manufacturers in the USA and around the world.

We manufacture gaskets and spliced o-rings, assemble point of use kits, and distribute seals manufactured by best-in-class specialists in 3 continents.  Our facilities contain technical centers of excellence and fast-turn prototyping tools.   

Darcoid is Parker Hannifin’s longest serving distribution partner.  Customers leverage those long-developed relationships to pull the maximum value from Parker EMG (Seal Group) which includes Parker O-Ring Division

We maintain a strong portfolio of independent manufacturing partners giving you access to seal technologies and supply programs suited to every combination of commercial consideration, volumes, and seal performance criticality.



A seal is inexpensive unless it fails ..to improve your product or your brand 

At Darcoid we recognize one simple truth: The performance of your product is directly related to the quality and reliability of the seal. 

Our vision is simple:  To be your best strategic supplier. 

 

Darcoid’s success over the years has been marked by the caliber of our customers. Customers whose products are making the world a better place, who are striving to be the best in their field, or who are creating entirely new to world technologies.   

Our goal is to provide the best seal for your application, predictably supplied with zero defects, when you need it wherever in the world you need it, and in doing so build a partnership that can be managed, because it is measured. 

What gets us out of bed in the mornings?  It’s ambition, purpose and core values 

We are small enough to care yet big enough to deliver and make a difference 

 

Our Why: 

To create a bond 
We know there is a better way to do it 
To be your trusted partner 
To know we will do it the right way 

 

Culture: family is a feeling; we operate with core values of integrity, honesty, and respect. 

We have CanAttude:  CanAttude is Attitude + Effort.  

From creating solutions and embracing challenges to streamlining and assuring dependable delivery of your sealing needs.
