Since our founding in 1947 by Fred A. Lennon (1905-1998), Swagelok has emphasized innovative design, reliable performance and the diligent manufacture of quality fluid system components. Our products are distributed globally through a network of exclusive, authorized sales and service centers dedicated to unfailing high standards of customer support.
Products That Evolve With Technology
Through the early years, the company's core product line, the Swagelok tube fitting, was expanded to include tees, elbows, reducers, thermocouple connectors, quick-connects, and other fitting products in a wide range of materials.
In 1957, responding to utility needs of nuclear power applications, we developed all-metal packless valves for leak-tight, flow control and containment of nuclear-process related fluids. Today, these technologies support a range of high-purity fluid applications in semiconductor, chemical, power, pharmaceutical, and other industries.
With the 2001 acquisition of a manufacturer of high-quality sanitary fittings, we expanded our offering to meet the growing needs of the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.
