Why Choose Marco Rubber
Marco Rubber & Plastics Experienced Team and Integrated Systems Deliver Value
14,000+ repeat customers choose to source O-Rings and Seals from the Specialist
Marco Rubber and Plastics has supplied rubber and plastic components like O-Rings and Gaskets around the world since 1980 to a wide range of markets including Semiconductor, Military, Petro-Chemical and various industrial markets. MARCO, originally Marine and Aerospace Rubber Company, was initially a traditional distributor representing major brands like Parker Hannifin. The big brand service levels eventually became counterproductive so we began our journey to independence in the early 1990’s. Ever since we have been developing a network of partners with unique capabilities that allow us to provide a multitude of products, materials, and situational capabilities to ensure our customers receive the best product and service options available. This network has allowed us to craft our own line of Marco branded materials which utilize the same raw polymers and contract manufacturers as the big brands, but without the overhead and complications that result in high prices in lead times. Our Markez® line of FFKM Perfluoroelastomer compounds offers an alternative to Kalrez® with identical performance at a fraction of the cost. Marco branded product lines are managed by industry experts many with big brand experience who are directly responsible for the design, manufacturing, quality and service. Marco will also supply Kalrez®, Parker Seal, and other big brand products when appropriate. We operate from a 37,000SF warehouse and manufacturing facility 30 minutes north of Boston filled with one of the world’s largest inventories of sealing components. Our integration with top teir contract manufacturers and suppliers allows us to deliver product faster than it takes others to quote.
