Deublin Co. has acquired Barco Seals of Cary, Ill. Both companies manufacture fluid power components used in a variety of equipment and process industries. Founded in 1908, Barco developed swivels and ball joints for the railroad industry. Over the years, Barco developed and manufactured hundreds of rotating unions, plane, and self-aligning swivel joints.
Deublin Co., founded in 1945, manufactures a broad range of precision components including rotating unions, steam joints and siphons, and electrical slip rings. Applications include wind turbine, machine tools, steel manufacturing, oil and gas exploration, paper and corrugating equipment, and more. “The Barco acquisition brings together two great brands with similar applications, along with many new products and markets,” says Rob O’Brien, VP Sales & Marketing at Deublin Company. It is privately held with international headquarters in Waukegan, Illinois, outside of Chicago, and manufacturing or sales locations in 17 countries.
