Our main concern is Your satisfaction

Your reliable system supplier for sealing technology.

When Engelbert Rohwedder, Heinz Luetzenkirchen and Guenther Ballerstaedt founded the company BALLERSTAEDT & CO. OHG in 1946, they not only concentrated on the reliability of their products, but their main concern and focus were their customers and the satisfaction of all their requirements.

Today, our motto "...protecting your products" is even more important. For us, this not only includes consultation, quick availability and fast delivery, but also the uninterrupted contact with our customers, suppliers and manufacturers.

Of course, we no longer supply only seals, but everything around sealing technology. From us as a system provider you can obtain aluminium seals and induction liners, but also suitable sealing devices and systems.

But there is much more: The BALLERSTAEDT & CO. OHG portfolio is today complemented by  numerous service offers for anything to do with sealing, such as our Total Sealing Management.

This way we can provide our customers with an unbeatable product and services portfolio in the sealing technology. Find out more about us on our website - we are looking forward to longlasting partnership and successful collaboration with you.
