    Anybody know of a 'door gaskets only' company ?using

    Especially in the south Jersey / Philadelphia area?

    I have been using a great outfit who does nice work and doesn't steal my customers - because they only do door gaskets. They are based near Woodbury I think.

    But . . . . now I can't find the guy's card and can't remember the name of the place.

    Anybody know?

    Thanks!

    No FMP just sells me the gasket - I don't want that

    This outfit goes out, measures the doors, makes custom gaskets, and installs them perfectly. They will either bil the customer directly or bill me so I can bill the customer.

    I had door gaskets, but this outfit takes care of everything.

    I just can't remember their name!!!!

    We have one here in the New Hampshire area but I doubt they go to your area. He's called The Gasket Guy.

    I hate, hate, hate doing door gaskets.

    For gaskets - time to get a new case as far as I'm concerned.

    This guy called or showed up at the office one day: "We do gaskets and do not do refrigeration. The customer can pay us, we can bill you, whatever. If you give us invoices we will pretend to work for you. Whatever you want."

    So I started screaming on every job:

    "Man these gaskets are Killing you! Let me get my guys in here. We'll take care of this. Geez; I wish you had told me your gaskets all suck."

    I went back to see the jobs and they had done them just perfect - every single one looked as good or better than factory original. They would bill me, I would add a few percent, and bill the customers.

    I sure wish I could find their cards or invoices or Something. I went over to one of the partner's house to pay the bill one time. But now I can't even remeber where That was!

    I was thinking that if they had cold-called me - maybe they had done the same to you all, and you, not being an idiot like me, would have their contact information handy.

    Skinny, here is a copy of my post from the Refrigeration/Ice Machine Forum:

    if you hate doing gaskets, perhaps I can help.

    We have around 20 locations and specialize in gaskets, hinges, latches, SS and diamond plate. We do not make HOT or COLD air. We just keep it in the box! We do chain restaurants, diners, etc. We manufacture and install refrigeration gaskets even for OLD equipment.

    Please put your contact info in your profile!

    In the Philly-SJ-Del-Md areas you can contact me. (215) 579-2776 or reach me on my mobile (215) 783-6463

    Thanks, Rob

    Since it's your company it's advertising! If it was just a member that knew of your place and he threw the link up to help a member, different story!

    Buy some advertising will ya!

    This is a great site! Mike is most likely extremely busy putting the wraps on Comfortech.

    I can contact him if you would like!
