Valley Precision Solutions, or affectionately known as VPS by its customers, was founded by E. Bradley Hahn as the pinnacle achievement in his long and storied career in the hydraulics industry. Brad started out his career in the hydraulics field right out of college with the Green Tweed Company as seal sales application specialist. He later became national sales manager for a thriving hydraulic cylinder company called Remco Hydraulics, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Stanray Products. After his successful stint with Remco, Brad accepted a position with Hercules Hydraulics as national sales manager.
In 1977, Brad finally decided it was time to start his own hydraulic seal company and in Aurora, Illinois the doors were open for business. The company was called Valley Packing and Seal and grew to become one of the largest, most successful hydraulic seal companies in North America. With branches in Milwaukee, WI, Cleveland, OH and Utica, NY, Valley Packing was a major employer and supplied seals to many of the most respected companies in the hydraulics industry. It was for this reason many rival companies frequently tried to buy the business. Finally in the early 1990s, an agreement was reached and Valley Packing and Seal was sold to a Holland company called Eriks Corporation.
Nearly nine years later, the seal company was reformed as Valley Precision Seal. Today, it is known to you as Valley Precision Solutions, LLC. VPS has its main warehouse and headquarters in DeKalb (pictured left) and warehousing operations can also be found in Los Angeles and Baltimore. Valley Precision Solutions is much more than “just a seal company”—call VPS for Hydraulic & Pneumatic Seals, Oil Seals, Seal Kits for Various Industries, Double Acting Piston Cups, Gaskets, Bearings, Bushings, Custom Molded Components, Rod Wipers, Repair Parts for Garbage Trucks, Fabricated Parts, Machined Parts, Rubber Pads, Slider Blocks, Wear Strips, Shims and Much More!
