SAS Industries, Inc. (SAS) began at a small storefront in Wantagh, NY during 1973. SAS's original work centered around building gaskets for new sewers being built in the area, mainly gaskets for manhole covers. SAS would soon grow to service many local plumbing suppliers as well. At the time the company operated with a few die cutting presses and eventually expanded to a small warehouse in Farmingdale, NY.
SAS spent many years in Farmingdale, NY in 2 different factories as it continued its expansion. During this time SAS added molding, slitting, and lathe cutting to its product line, opening up to many new industries including Aerospace, Defense and Telecommunications industries.
In 1982 SAS purchased 13 Acres in Manorville, NY where our headquarters are located to this date. SAS also launched this very website (sasindustries.com) in 1982.
Shortly after our initial move to our new location SAS again doubled its factory size in order to continue to support its growing customer base in 1983. At this time SAS entered into ana greement with then Conneticut Hard Rubber (CHR) Silicones now Saint Gobain as a distributor, converting there extensive product line.
In 1987 SAS recognized a market niche that was not being properly serviced and began the process of developing its own conductive silicone compounds. To this day it is our specialty and we pride ourselves on our EMI/RFI Shielding materials and the value we are able to give our customers with these products. Throughout the years we have made many break throughs and are always improving and expanding upon our offerings.
In recent years we have focused on improving our capabilities and offerings along with offering state of the art technologies to help reduce costs. We have done through a heavy commitment to quality and automation wherever possible.
