Hamilton Kent Marks 70 years of Sealing Connections

A multi-national manufacturer and distributor of resilient-rubber, watertight sealing systems and components for underground infrastructure, Hamilton Kent is marking a major milestone in its history with the celebration of its 70th anniversary.

Founded in 1943 in Kent, Ohio, Hamilton Kent started out as a small manufacturer of rubber components for the war effort (it was so small in fact, that it started in the basement of a residence). It has since grown into one of North America’s premiere manufacturers of gaskets, connectors and other sealing components for underground infrastructure, operating out of two world-class facilities in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and Winchester, Tenn.
Hamilton Kent products can now be found in countless underground infrastructure projects in North America, from the pipes supplying clean water to municipal customers to the sanitary sewer pipelines taking the wastewater away for treatment.

“In 70 years, a lot of things have changed. But many things have stayed the same. Quality products are still critical for keeping underground infrastructure watertight and great customer service is still valued,” says Hamilton Kent president and COO Bernard Grégoire. “As we celebrate our 70th birthday this year, we’re proud of our contributions to underground infrastructure and pleased that Hamilton Kent is still regarded as North America’s premier manufacturer for sealing buried systems and components.”
