Gortite is a division of the A & A Manufacturing Company; as a company, A & A were established over 65 years ago in America as a basket ball and football supplier, which is very different to manufacturing machinery parts! Gerald ‘Doc’ O’Rourke (the founder) started a business in his basement after noticing that children needed footballs and basketballs throughout his neighbourhood. Although the products he made differed to what he ended up specialising in, his quality and workmanship has never been in doubt. It is thanks to Rourke’s hard working ethos that A & A evolved into what it is today.
The evolution of A & A occurred after the introduction of line of sewn leather industrial bellows. After this, they started to design and manufacture components used is most types of equipment and machinery. As an American based company their reputation was never in doubt and their status has grown as an industry leader throughout the world thanks to their machinery covers. The telescopic steel covers they can provide you with are custom designed for any tool application that requires protection. The Telaflex® cover protects your machinery from dirt, oil, damage caused by dropped tools and much more.
