Your Authorized Swagelok Sales and Service Center

The Man Behind the Mission

Swagelok Company was founded in 1947 by Fred A. Lennon (1905-1998), with a $500 loan and the promise of a colleague’s design for an easy-to-install, leak-tight tube fitting. 

His mantra was, “Make the best product possible to help customers succeed, and keep making it better.” 

From the beginning, our founder insisted on core values – Quality, Respect for the Individual, Integrity and Customer Focus – and these live on with us today.
