Meet Dave Steadman, American Seal & Packing
I started Steadman & Associates, Inc. in 1989 from a two-bedroom apartment in Huntington Beach. Steadman & Associates, Inc. was formed as a manufacturer’s rep company, we evolved to a full fluid sealing distributorship and named it AS&P (American Seal & Packing) in 1994. We then expanded into manufacturing gaskets and seals in house to improve our service and delivery time.
Our customers include other distributors, end users, original equipment manufacturers, NASA and Joe the mechanic.
We offer the following products:
Rubber gasketing spiral wound gaskets, Cut Gaskets, O-rings made with Viton® elastomers, gasket materials, lip seals, mechanical, cartridge, engineered shaft pump and water pump shaft seals, PTFE machined extruded or molded. From FKM Gaskets to Grafoil® Seals, from PTFE resin O-rings to Aflas® and more.
I wanted to remain in the seal industry and to stay in California. Due to a reduction in force by Garlock, to accomplish those goals required that I create my own company. 31 years later, I’m still glad I did.
