Tobar customers have depended on our imported seals since our beginning in 1987. We have earned a reputation as a supplier who provides large volume, competitively priced, proven quality seals, delivered on time. Our internal quality and technical support systems have been developed to meet the most stringent OEM and PPAP standards. Tobar, Inc. was certified to ISO 9002 and QS 9000 in September of 1996. In November of 2005 Tobar, Inc. moved from QS 9000 to ISO 9001:2000. September 2017 we were certified to ISO 9001:2015.  We can document and assure our customers worry-free seals with industry low PPM rates. At Tobar, we simply do what we say we’ll do.

As a seal supplier, we offer a wide range of elastomers, metal materials, and lip profiles to meet both standard and special applications. Tobar’s vast range of seals is listed on this website. Our seals have proven to be equal to or better than current sources when tested for production approval.

We pride ourselves with some of the lowest cost tooling and quickest prototyping in the industry. As your seal supplier, we are able to furnish FMEA’s, Gage R&R’s and PPAP’s as you require.

So, all of our Tobar employees say with pride, ”Relax, you’re in for a smooth ride with Tobar oil”
