For over 37 years, American Braiding and Manufacturing has been a leading manufacturer of the most complete lines of high quality mechanical packing and related fluid sealing products available. In 1978, former Packing Development Engineer for Johns Manville Company Jerry Bailey founded American Braiding and Manufacturing as a primary supplier to the government military supply chain by assisting in the creation of many of the current military specifications that exist today. Today, our products support both commercial and military aircraft, merchant and military surface ships, and submarines.

Driven by our quest to provide customers with the right solutions at the right time and the right cost, American Braiding branched out to the commercial market by developing a worldwide chain of distribution for their line of fluid sealing products with an emphasis on the technical development and improvement of packing and fluid sealing products.

From our modern 25,000 square foot manufacturing facility, American Braiding has dedicated itself to advancing its technical capabilities, and continuing to expand its product line and services to meet emerging customer needs. We provide best-of-industry solutions for the design, production, modification and support of fluid sealing products.

As American Braiding enters its second generation of existence, we continue to define ourselves by our people and the commitment they bring to their jobs. American Braiding is one of the most experienced companies in the markets it serves around the world with over 100 years of combined experience in fluid sealing manufacturing and distribution.

American Braiding is proud to be a member of the Fluid Sealing Association, and serves the International Sealing Distribution Association as their Packing Technical Leader sponsor. We pride ourselves on providing unsurpassed technical support, and helping our distributors support end users in maintaining their equipment in the most efficient and effective operating condition.

We look forward to serving you.
