Kent-based leak control specialist Primalec has announced its refrigerant sealants range is now being produced in the UK. The onshoring process for Airco Seal ProTM, the micro leak repair system for air conditioning refrigerants, is now complete, leading to a shorter and more reliable supply chain.
Airco Seal Pro was developed in Texas by a family-owned business, with which Primalec had a close relationship for many years. That relationship did continue after the family business was sold ten years ago but has since changed ownership several times.
“Partnerships with suppliers and customers is key to Primalec’s business philosophy,” says Primalec Director Richard Doran. “Our association with our former partners across the Atlantic dates back to when our business was founded in 1979. That has given us an unrivalled knowledge and understanding of this highly specialist product category, and why the market needs it.
“In the end, bringing production in house was a no-brainer. Seal Pro is exactly the same product as before – the same unique ingredients and the same vacuum canister, same hose and same packaging specifications as before, but it is now made in the UK.
“Branding has been updated and, as it will be supplied direct from the manufacturer to the wholesaler, it will lead to greater security of supply and pricing in post-Brexit Britain. “This is one of a series of new initiatives and products in the coming months that will help Primalec provide an even better service to our customers in the automotive aftermarket.”
